Hello, friends, and welcome to The Financial Journeymana personal finance blog about my journey toward financial independence (FI) and goal of reaching early retirement (FIRE).  My posts will be about saving money, investingbeing frugal, travel, finding good deals when you do spend money, avoiding debt, and having a great time along the journey.  

Are you interested in breaking the chains of having to work for a living?  Do you want to build wealth and retire early?  Do you want to spend your time perusing your passions?  Do you want the freedom of choice as to how you will send your days?  If you answer yes to any of these questions, you‘ve found the right blog. 

I, the blogger of The Financial Journeyman, have never worked for an investment company.  My day job is working for a not-for-profit and my wife is an elementary school teacher.  Personal finance, however, is my passion because, by mastering it, I’m able to achieve my own version of the American Dream. 

I’m also passionate about helping other people reach their financial goals.  It’s rewarding to mentor others and watch them thrive.  It’s awesome to hear that someone has become debt free, established an emergency fund, opened a Roth IRA, maxed out a 401K, or set a goal date as to when he or she will retire early. 

The journey toward reaching financial independence and early retirement is amazing.  I want to share this journey with like-minded people who want to live more and work less.  I decided to create this blog because I want both to help people reach their goals and learn from their experiences.  I truly hope to build a community of people working toward financial independence.

Please be sure to first read the K.I.S.S. ApproachAbout Me,  Resources, and Blog posts that will give you a glimpse of my approach to personal finance, my life, and some outstanding wealth-building sources.  Also, please be sure to leave a comment and share the blog posts.  You, too, can enjoy the rewards of helping others reach their financial goals.
