Eat.Money is about Earning, Automating and Tracking your money 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 provide 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.
What you can expect from me
I plan to document my life as it occurs. I plan on reflecting on the keys that have gotten me to where I’m at today as I believe its important. I’m writing as much for me as I am for you.
The large majority of my posts will fall into one of four categories; Earning, Automating, Tracking or growing your money monster (i.e. entrepreneurship or investing). I will certainly post random thoughts, ideas, or resources that have benefited me and hopefully you as well.
What I expect from you
Not a whole lot here. All I ask is that you speak up when you disagree with me or have something to share. I hope my posts create a forum in which others can share their opinions on the topic I am writing about in hopes that we can all become more knowledgeable about the topic at hand.
Quite frankly I dont have one yet. Not having an investment focus is a major reason why I wanted to start writing. My goal is to investigate all different areas of investment, opportunities, risks, etc and come to some type of plan. I have done lots of research already that has gotten me to where I’m at but still have some work to do.
My ultimate investment focus will probably result from the following process (because most of my life does): research the alternatives, put together a plan, execute on the plan, periodically revisit the plan, always keep learning.
The majority of my writing will center around a few key areas. Here they are in no particular order:
- Earning More
- The importance of planning your spending and being aware how you are tracking to the plan
- Putting systems in place in all facets of life
- Investigating areas in which you could invest the gap between your earnings and your spending
