Let's start your journey to wealth...

Want to learn more about money?

Want to make more money, keep it, and grow it?

This page is a roadmap that shows you the fundamentals of personal finance one article at a time.

Let's go through it, step-by-step...

Step 1: Ground Yourself

If you're starting from nothing, there are four basic steps to improve your personal finances.

These four steps apply to everyone.

After reading this article, you’ll be able to ground yourself.

Step 2: Create a Net Worth Statement

A net worth statement counts up your assets and your debts. It gives you a baseline from which to set your goals and grow.

Unsure what counts as assets or debts? Here’s a list.

Step 3: Create Financial Goals

Your financial goals should answer the most important questions in your life. This roadmap helps, but what’s your destination?

I also made a handy calculator to help you calculate next year’s savings goal.

Step 4: Become a 'FOO Fighter'

“I’ve got $1000. What’s the best thing I can do with that money?”

The answer: follow the Financial Order of Operations (the FOO!). I created a PDF that you can get for free.

Step 5: You Need a Budget

You can’t improve your finances until you know where your money is going.

A budget gives you that info. How much money comes in, how much goes out.

Here’s how the experts budget.

Step 6: Win the Mental Battle

Improving your finances is a long journey. You'll need patience.

It’s more about mental habits than about math.

Step 8: Keep On Learning

Learning is never-ending, so I focus a lot on exploring new ideas.
