Who This Blog is for

Eat.Money is about Earning, Automating and Tracking your finances in hopes of investing all excess cash flow into building the biggest, baddest Money Monster. This monster will start out small and will require a tremendous amount of time, care and attention. However, if you EAT enough the Monster provides for your family giving you the peace of mind and financial security to you can focus on what really matters in life.

Eat.Money is about living a balanced life while taking steps every day, week, month and year to where we want to go in all facets of life. Life isn’t about extreme sacrifice, its about optimizing for happiness while not always taking the mainstream or popular advice within the personal finance community. What I practice every day isn’t theory because I’m literally tracking and documenting the growth.

I look at the problems i’m facing and dig in to learn and understand in order to make the best financial decisions for myself and my family. Whatever the next step in my path is, I will spend hours learning about it, pull out the golden nuggets and share them.

This path isn’t easy and it isn’t going to happen in a few years. This is a lifelong journey and I invite you to take it with me.

My Story

In June 2011 I graduated engineering school and got married. My wife and I entered adult hood with next to no cash to our name and 70k in debt. I was already a Dave Ramsey fanatic so we hit our debt hard. I kinda graduated from Dave and ran across Mr. Money Mustache and the rest of the personal finance community.

Since then I’ve had two kids, bought two houses (only living in one at a time), got my MBA and have been fanatical about my finances. We’ve made a ton of progress in our financial journey but I know this is only the beginning.

I believe in the power of focus and compounding effort so keep my list of priorities short. Currently they are my family, my career, this blog and becoming better as an individual each and every day.
