I originally wrote this blog to educate young professionals in the workplace to learn more about personal financial planning. I wanted to get the message out that even though we had all finished school and entered the workplace, that there was still much more to learn and much more to grow. Each one of us has the ability to make good common sense financial judgements, but my assumption was that we had all lacked the knowledge and I just needed to fill the gap.
As I continued writing this blog, I realized that topics around personal finances was a very taboo subject. More so than people talking about their sexual preferences or personal relationships. I decided that on top of educating my readers, I wanted to break down the stigma that talking about finances was too personal. It is important that we share our successes, but on top of that it is important that we share our failures, because failures are our way of learning and improving ourselves.
As I continue writing, I hope to share many more of my experiences, invite more guest writers to give a different point of view, and open up a place where people can share their ideas through questions and feedback. I welcome all of you to share this blog with your friends, and to help me build a community where we can help each other achieve personal financial independence.
