Created Just For You!
Below are resources that I developed that I believe can help readers in growing their wealth and creating a better life. I hope you find them helpful! If you have any comments or questions, please let me know through the Contact page.
Transaction Register: This is a simple manual transaction register that you can use to track monthly expenses by category. Using automated services can be helpful, but if you are just getting started, you need to relive every transaction to truly understand what you are spending and if it is a needed expense. The best way I have found to do that is to manually enter the expense through a simple transactions register.
Financial Apps & Services
Digit: Digit helps save money for you without you even realizing it by sweeping money out of your checking account to an FDIC Digit savings account. Digit is hands down my favorite financial service currently available. Check out my review for more information on them!
Personal Capital: My go to tool for checking my net worth on the go. I only track my net worth officially every quarter so I use Personal Capital in between to make sure nothing crazy happens. They also have fantastic tools to get a better handle on your investments and asset allocation!
A Million Miles in a Thousand Years (Donald Miller): By applying the elements of stories, we have the ability to create the life we’ve always wanted. It will make you ask yourself what’s your story?
Your Money or Your Life (Joe Dominguez & Vicki Robin): This may be the Bible when it comes to personal finance. It will make you question if you are prioritizing your life in the best way.
The Millionaire Next Door (Thomas Stanley): This is the book that started it all for me. The typical millionaire may not be who you think they are so establish the habits of the real millionaires.
The Wealthy Barber (David Chilton): Personal finance advice meets fiction. The wealthy barber presents good personal finance advice in the form of a story. Learn the tips and habits you need to become wealthy from your local neighborhood barber!
Stacking Benjamins: This is one of my few must listen podcasts. Joe and OG do a great job at breaking down financial information so anyone can understand. This podcast may have had the biggest impact on my financial life compared to any other resource.
Financial Independence Podcast: A fantastic podcast that interviews people who have achieved financial independence, concentrating on the techniques and strategies they used to obtain FI.
