Welcome to The Shiny Dollar! A personal finance project that has marinated in my head for about 7 years, but I think its time to finally go through with the idea. Followthrough is always the issue isn’t it?
So who am I? You can call me Gabe D. (Could be short for Dollar or Dumb***, depending on who you ask). I’m a 30 year old who loves the personal finance world. My main goal is to teach the financial noobs a thing or two. Things I wish someone would have taught me sooner. My secondary goal is to connect with the financial community and start sharing ideas.
I know finances is not something a lot of people sit around and think about (but honestly, you should) all day, so I hope we can talk about it in a way that isn’t boring.
Now that the sappy s*** is over, my personal goal, like most people that would be checking out a blog like this, is Financial Freedom. More specifically, to have a net worth of 3 million dollars by 50. Why 3 million dollars you ask? Because it’s a good a number as any dammit. And If I fall short… Who cares?? The goal is to retire early. See I love to travel and spend time with my family, and most of all, eat… but I’m limited because of money and time, so I figure, work hard now, and have some extra years at the back end of my lift to enjoy with my (now) 3 month old and my wife.
As for as the blog? Well it’s a work in progress, but aren’t all good ideas a work in progress forever? No you say? Oh…
I’m sure I’ll talk way more about me later, but I would love to learn more about all my visitors, so leave a comment and lets collaborate!
