In 2013, I started this blog to help you improve your relationship with money and give better access to financial knowledge and resources.
My mission is to empower you to master money, create wealth and live well.
In order to function in our society, we need money. That’s the cold hard cash truth. I’m not here to tell you money is bad. I’m here to help you understand money, so it can work for you.
The lack of financial understanding impacted my life. It caused me to be indebted, drowning in student loans, living paycheck-to-paycheck, and having many sleepless nights worrying about my finances.
If you are in a place where I was before, I want to help you.
I want you to know how gaining a better understanding of money can change the tides and allow you to buck the norms…to live your best life…as I am doing right now.
An improved money mindset, financial habits, access to the best resources, and better banking products have helped me significantly. I was able to quit my corporate job, backpacked around the world, and now living a financially independent lifestyle.
As I continue on this quest to share the meaning of financial wellness, I’ve developed these principles which are the core of my philosophy:
money is a tool,
time is a finite resource,
practice financial and self-awareness,
use the best products and services,
have a vision for living,
align financial decisions based on values,
and set financial goals that serve your purpose.
Are you ready to go on a journey with me and the rest of the financial wellness road warrior community?
What started as an experiment to break the social taboo about money has evolved into a movement helping thousands of people get on the road to financial wellness.

Why financial wellness?
Financial wellness is about your health and wealth. It’s about the overall quality of the life you’re living.
But what is financial wellness?
Financial wellness is the active pursuit of healthy living through financial planning and goal setting to live your best life.
The key word is active pursuit which means taking action to improve your financial situation and well-being.
