Millennial. Contrarian. Midwesterner. I graduated in 2014 from a state school with a business degree, took a job in a mid-sized firm, and have been working for a year now. I want to blog about securing my financial future. I hope to help you define your priorities, use principles of corporate finance, and learn methods for planning, implementing, and measuring success. I will post Excel sheets to aid you, but it should all be very uncomplicated :) There are no hard-and-fast rules in finance. There is only a real world and we must learn to operate within it. Along the way, I hope to challenge your preconceived notions of personal finance.
My First Blog: Why I'm Writing
"...There is a gap between what people think is fact and the much more nuanced truth; the truth is, there is no one path to achieving your financial priorities. Just as no one corporation holds the secret to longevity, no one person holds the secret to wealth. If there was one path, everyone would take it and everyone would be rich."
