Let’s see here, what can I tell you about myself. Well, I’m 6’1, hyperactive, rock a mohawk, and I constantly have a devilish grin on my face (which usually tends to get me in trouble).
I’m recently married, in my early 30's (tear), and I work over in DC for a start up managing customer service. I love hip-hop music and traveling, and you can find me on Twitter rambling about. While I *thought* I was The Man when it came to money, it really wasn’t until we purchased our first home that I realized I needed to get my finances in order. It was time to pay attention!
Soooooooo, I tracked my expenses for 3 months, made a budget, read some books (The Millionaire Next Door, & I Will Teach You To Be Rich being my favs), and it’s been smooth sailing ever since! Throughout the whole process I accidentally came across the PF blogosphere and have been hooked from day one ;) What’s not to like about getting your finances in order? I can tell you for a fact that I sure as hell don’t know everything out there, but I def. continue to learn. I’d say I’ve been on the right path since Jan of ’08, and now ready to work towards my goal of becoming a millionaire! (I even have a to-do list!).
Will this blog sound kooky at times? Sure thing. Will you wonder why I use the words “Super” and “Sexy” a lot? You bet. Ultimately though, my goal is to spread some good ideas around town and spark some motivation. I don’t know about you, but I get CRAZY bored reading about finances by old white men in blah styles, so I do my best to spice things up and keep things entertaining around here. We all have A.D.D., so it’s important you’re having fun on the site!
If you like what you see (or don’t) feel free to holler anytime, I love getting comments :) You can email me over at: j (at) budgetsaresexy (dot) com, or fill out my nifty little contact form. Either way I’ll hit ya back as soon as I can.
Long live the greenbacks!
