Welcome to my finance blog. Yes, I am a money moron. Really. You should check out my future posts.
Check my about me page to get a 50,000 foot view of who the heck this money moron is.
I am in my mid 30’s. I do not have a family I support and do not have kids. I do like to help out my parents though such as buying my mom a plane ticket overseas every year to visit family.
I graduated from a Big 10 school with a degree in Business Management majoring in Marketing. I attended the school as an out of state university (oops….more to come on this later….!)
I have a full time job as VP, Digital Marketing. I truly enjoy being in the digital space. I evolved from analyzing direct mail (snail mail) campaigns out of school to the position I am in now. I work for a fortune 500 financial services company.
My career journey going from company to company is not that unusual but going from an analyst to a VP has been interesting according to some who have called me a mentor. The last 5-6 years (2012-2017) especially were interesting. Lots of learning and critical experiences. I truly believe everything happens for a reason.
I love to learn. I listen to podcasts or audiobooks nonstop and keep it running as background noise. I enjoy learning about investing (personal, real estate) and general business (leadership, people management, critical thinking). I will share some of my favorite books and podcasts that motivated me just as recently as last month (April 2018).
I do not expect much out of this blog financially, but I do have certain expectations such as:
- Continue learning
- Share knowledge based on my personal experiences as a money moron
- Provide encouragement
I intend to focus on providing finance tips, experiences, and investing tips.
Thanks for visiting and following the journey of a money moron.
