Hello and welcome to My Money Design!
My belief: You can reach financial freedom.
It doesn’t matter what your bills are like. It doesn’t matter how much (or little) money you make.
You can truly achieve financial freedom if you REALLY want to. All it takes is the right amount of knowledge, discipline, and (most important) “a plan”.
These are exactly the things I want to give you with this blog. I started My Money Design not just as way to improve the lives of my family, but also as a means to help others who wanted to accomplish the same incredible goal.
For as long as I’ve been a student of money, one thing I’ve learned is that even though everybody’s financial situation is different, there are a few core, fundamental strategies that simply just “work”. Though there are times you may have to find creative solutions to solve real-world problems, I’ve found that if you truly practice these underlying techniques when it comes to handling your money, I promise you: You’re going to see a BIG difference!
My hope is that the information I share with you impacts your life in some meaningful way. Whether its realizing that you might be able to retire 10 or 20 earlier than you originally thought, or even a simple trick that will help you save a few more dollars per month, I really do wish that everyone who stops by this site learns something that will improve their life.

Who Am I?
Ever since I was a little kid, I’ve been fascinated with money and the ways people become rich!
Starting in my early 20’s, I began studying everything I could find that had to do with money. I read through dozens of books and thousands of websites looking for all the best secrets in budgeting, investing, and early retirement. More importantly, I’ve tried most of the things I learned about to better understand what really works and what doesn’t.
While I’m not a trained financial professional, I have spent most of my adult life optimizing every aspect of my financial well-being. This includes everything from finding ways to max out our retirement accounts to taking dream vacations for pennies on the dollar. In total, this effort has created an ideal frame-work for my wife and I to be able to retire in our 40’s (if we choose) and live comfortably for the rest of our lives.
