Hey everyone! I am a young professional who graduated from an expensive private university in May of 2010 with a lot of student loan debt. I then graduated again in August of 2012 with my Finance MBA with even more student loan debt.
Don’t worry though, I paid them all off in July of 2013!
I used to work full-time in the financial services industry, but I recently left my day job so that I could work full-time on my business.
I recently decided to start a new blog (this one). This blog will be entirely devoted to my life and how I’m trying to diversify as much as I can.
Even though my tagline says that I want to be financially independent, not everything on this blog will be about passive income. You will hear a lot about investing (stocks, real estate, etc.), different ways to make money, career talk, budgeting and so on.
There’s only so much that I can talk about side hustles on Making Sense of Cents, so I figured that I would branch out and start a new website for those of you who are more interested in money, and not my personal life 😛 and personal finances.
So what is financial independence? Financial independence is the point where I can choose whether or not I want to work, and therefore be able to work on things that I enjoy. I don’t want to feel like I am stuck forever, and having the choice to do what I want to do is important. Read further in the post What is Financial Independence?
