When it comes to financial advice, I’m not going to reinvent the wheel here by trying to create catchy new terminology for existing principles, because that would be a waste of time.  While a lot of what I propose is not necessarily new–there are elements that aren’t commonly known/practiced, so I’ll try to make what I relay in my blogs/podcasts easier to relate to, and, more importantly, they’ll often be from my perspective and personal experience.  I am NOT a financial advisor, but I am someone who has learned a lot through seeing/making a lot of mistakes and working across various industries/disciplines.  If you have any questions or concerns about anything that’s mentioned in my blogs/podcasts, I invite you to seek the advice of a reputable financial expert and to do a little research.  After all, we should all be asking MORE questions when it comes to our financial well-being.
