Who Is SaveIt?

1 Jun, 2009  |  Written by  |  under Personal Finance Articles

While Spending It has an about page, SpendIt and I thought that we should each introduce ourselves.  Here is SpendIt’s Bio.  Now, after much procrastination, here is a little information about myself.

First of all, I want you to know that I have not mastered money.  I don’t want you to think, “Oh, here comes another know-it-all personal finance blogger who is going to tell me how I should be living like a pauper so that I can live better when I am sixty.”  I am not that guy.

I am a business executive and attorney who likes to write about personal finance, careers, and life.  Most of my writing is focused on the lessons that I am learning at that moment.  But, having been in the workforce for as long as I have, I hope that my life experience will help out younger people who are just starting out.

I have been blogging for several years, but finally found someone to start a personal finance blog with – SpendIt.  I realized that I could never create a flagship blog by myself because my day job keeps me too busy.  Therefore, I am grateful that my real life friend and I could start Spending It together.

Who Am I?

Family Man

Well, first and foremost I am a husband and a father.  The entire reason for caring about personal finance issues revolves around these two things.  I need to be disciplined with money and my career in order to best provide for my family.

Being a good family member is my most important responsibility, but it is also one of the things that I struggle with on a daily basis.  I am a workaholic and maintaining a good work life balance is a constant struggle.

I will be writing a lot of articles about maintaining a good work life balance. I think that this is one of the most difficult challenges facing today’s workers.

-Business Executive

In addition to being a husband and father, I am also a corporate attorney with a Fortune 100 company.  Being an attorney is both rewarding and challenging.

As I mentioned above, my biggest challenge is keeping a healthy work life balance.  I cannot think of many jobs that strain the work life balance as much as being an attorney.

What types of articles am I looking forward to writing?

The articles that we are going to cover on Spending It are more than just personal finance articles.  Spending It is about Conscious Living.  This involves living life to its fullest, understanding what kind of life you want to live, and putting yourself in the best position to live that life.

With these goals in mind, I will write about,

  • How to get ahead in your career
  • How to stay out of debt or reduce debt
  • How to get the best education to achieve your career aspirations
  • Disciplined spending advice
  • Ways to earn more money
  • Leadership
  • Personal Productivity
  • Travel

My biggest goal for my articles is to encourage myself and you to act on the information covered.  I see tons of people read personal finance book after personal finance book, but never make any changes in their lives.  This makes me want to scream.  If you don’t use the information that you read, you are wasting your time.

I am sure that this blog will evolve as time goes on.  I will have to be disciplined to stay on message.

I also hope that you leave comments about what you are interested in us talking about.  This blog will be a failure if readers do not participate.

Please feel free to introduce yourself in the comments below.  I would love to get to know you.
