Hello and welcome to my personal finance blog! I started this blog with a goal of keeping me motivated in my personal finance journey with an emphasis on helping others. With all the financial misinformation out there, I want to be a voice you can trust to give you honest financial information without a high pressured sales pitch and ulterior motives.
My name is Ryan and I have a passion for personal finance and education. I am married and have three children, a girl and two boys all under the age of ten. My wife stays home with the kids so I know how challenging it can be to live off one income. Much of what I write is based off my personal experiences and what I have learned in the course of my life.
My financial journey began when my wife and I saved up a sum of money and I didn’t know who I could trust to invest it. After several interviews with financial advisers, I still didn’t feel like I could trust anyone. Due to this, I began my journey to educate myself by reading every finance book I could get my hands on and by attending financial seminars. After getting a good handle on debt, finance, and investments, I decided to start this blog as a resource for others who find it difficult to trust people with their money.
As far as my “real job,” I have been in law enforcement for 14 years and I have seen the devastation left behind by people who mismanage their finances. This also motivates me to educate as many people as I can.
For my formal education, I obtained a Bachelor of Science in Education and a Master of Administration Degree from Northern Arizona University. I am an adjunct professor at a local community college and I have been a student of finance for many years. This blog is dedicated to those looking to eliminate their debt and to mold a new way of thinking, living, and spending. Education, focused on financial stability and wealth, is the main purpose of this blog.
This website is a new journey for me and I know there are areas that I could improve. Please feel free to reach out to me with any critiques – I would love the feedback so I can be as effective as I possibly can and provide the most relevant information. I look forward to writing for you and learning with you!
