What is this website about?
We started this site as a way to teach our own daughter what we thought were the important lessons about money. Money is one of the forbidden topics in conversation and education. Like religion and politics, we don't teach philosophies of money. It is a personal thing. This website records our approach to money.
Who are you?
We are a middle-class, mid-west couple. We have two children. We have been married 20ish years and are mid-40s.
What qualifies you to create this website?
We've used money for most of our entire lives! :) We believe we are qualified as we have explored a variety of ways to work with money. We have been employees, self-employed, business owners, real estate investors, stock investors, exotic-instrument investors, and more. Our perspectives and approach is based on time-tested principles. We aren't professional money managers or licensed financial advisers. Take this into account. This website is for our daughter - we hope you find it valuable.
