As the first post in my new blog, I guess introductions are in order.  I am currently in my mid-twenties, and live in a major US city.  I can directly trace my interest in personal finance and investment to the summer between my sophmore and junior year of college.

I was home, without a job, and just hanging out at the beach.  Looking though my father's bookcase, I came across a book, "Rich Dad Poor Dad" by Robert Kiyosaki.  This book single-handedly changed the way I think about money. 

I am creating this blog as a way to share my story, knowledge, and experiences as I attempt to reach financial freedom.  The internet is an incredibly powerful tool, allowing the sharing of information across all barriers as easy as the click of a mouse.  Knowledge is power, and in my opinion the more information you have, and the more varied the sources of that information, the better off you will be when you form your own conclusions.

As I continue on this journey to self-made wealth,  I have come to understand how much money you make is less important than how you handle that money.  I hope that this blog will give myself, and my readers, an opportunity to think a bit deeper about their financial habits, and provide a little entertainment along the way.

Keep Saving,
