Depends on where you are, which one best describes you?

Hello. My friends call me Jeff. Guess that means you can call me Jeff, huh? 🙂
I’m the creator of this blog and glad you found me.
I’m a self-proclaimed numbers geek.
I even began the wooing of my future wife by offering to show her how to use a financial calculator. True story.
Rose is particularly good in explaining how to establish and keep good credit; the need for having clear, specific financial goals; how to learn from your mistakes when you go off track; and the best ways to eliminate debt.

- Lost $5,000 investing in a penny stock. That's one way to learn!
- Didn't invest my emergency fund into GE stock that could have made me $75,000. Would-a, should-a, could-a!
suckerconvince over 140 people to write about the Roth IRA on the same day all because I danced to LMFAO.
- And I'm pretty sure Dave Ramsey thinks I'm nuts.
Okay, maybe that's not the street cred you were looking for.
How about this: I'm a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional (if it has a trademark it has to be legit, right?), the CEO of my own wealth management firm and wrote a best-selling book on personal finance.
Does that help?

Finance Degree Equals Investing Knowledge Fail
Back in the day…..I graduated with a Finance degree and still couldn’t tell you a thing about investing.
Did you catch that? A FINANCE degree.
If I didn’t know a thing about investing, how is someone majoring in going to figure it out?
Hint: they’re not.
My parents had always told me to save. Did I listen? Of course not.
They always encouraged me to save, but never really showed me how.
Since they never showed me how, I dismissed it and focused on more important things. You know like music concerts, Taco Bell, and working out. Priorities people!

So Why Good Financial Cents?
As the tag lines of this blog reads “Making “cents” of your financial life” that’s exactly what I want to do.
- Confused on how to start investing?
- Don’t know how to open a Roth IRA?
- Stumped on how to save for your kid’s college?
- Clueless on how much life insurance you need to buy?
- Getting started with your 401k have you feeling overwhelmed?
Before you jump off the ledge or just give up and go on a reality TV binge to drown your money sorrows away……CHILL!
I’ve got your back. overwhelmed? =)
But the ONLY way that things are going to change is that you have to want more.
My mission, should you choose to accept it, is to help you gain full control of your money situation so that one day you can experience what financial independence truly tastes like. And my friends, it tastes delicious!
