You will notice that we do things a little differently around here.
A lot of personal finance blogs out there will advise you to follow the “Get Rich Slow” philosophy. You know the ones: give up that $4.00 latte, never eat out, sell your car, only eat rice and beans, and reuse your paper towels. If that’s what you’re looking for, then you’re in the wrong place.
That advice describes the extreme frugality movement going on in the blogosphere, where many bloggers are preaching “live like a college student” in order to reach financial freedom and retire early. Those bloggers are expense-focused and enjoy the simple life. Fine for them, but that is not what you’re going to get here. I already lived like a college student, and I’m done with that. Instead, I am going to teach you how to “Get Rich Fast.“
Notice I didn’t say “Get Rich Quick.” It’s a subtle change in words, but there is a big difference. I truly believe that anyone can reach financial freedom, if you’re willing to do things differently than the masses. However, I am most definitely NOT preaching any “get rich quick” schemes. My method is based on strategy, intelligent moves, and extreme hustle. Plus, anything I endorse is something I am also already doing myself, with my own money.
Does that appeal to you? Before we continue, be sure to sign up for my email list below so I can lay it all out to you in depth and you never miss a new post.

Depending on what your financial goals are, maybe you should listen to me and maybe you shouldn’t. Regardless, I am not giving out advice anyway. All I do on this blog is share my own experience, and my real life examples. By doing so, my hope is to inspire and motivate you to create abundance in your own life, whatever that may mean to you. But if you want to see if what I have been doing is working, take a look at the financial summary below as of December 31st, 2022. Notice that I have been able to grow my family’s net worth from $42,424 to $10,245,337 (a gain of 24,150%).
Does that make you want to listen to me? I hope so! My money is truly where my
mouth blog is. Check it out:
