Why this blog?

I became fascinated with personal finance blogs and blogging in 2004/2005.  Life (careers, kids, moves) got in the way and I never started my own blog as I dreamed I would.  In the fullness of time I’ve recently felt a stirring in my soul to pursue an entrepreneurial endeavor to improve our family’s finances and to make a positive change in the world.   In re-reading “Rich Dad Poor Dad” after a ~13 year hiatus I realized I have accumulated mostly liabilities, not assets.  I also read that life favors the bold, and I need to take action if I want to change my trajectory.   I want to commiserate with an online community of like-minded individuals and also offer my knowledge and wisdom to the world.  I have degrees in accounting and finance and have worked in accounting, finance and banking since graduating college.  I’ve made some dumb mistakes as well as some wise moves, and I’d like to share what I know.  I want to keep myself accountable, and encourage others.  For years I’ve voraciously consumed podcasts and books related to investing, real estate, and business and I truly feel I have a unique perspective to offer.

What’s next?

In the next few days I’ll publish a current look at our household’s finances, as well as some further background on our experiences and goals.
