About Me
I am a nerdy engineer that enjoys learning more about personal finance.
Why I Joined
To see how I measure up against others. While I am not super competitive I believe in healthy uses of peer pressure to set high expectations for yourself.
Best Financial Decision
Going to a in state college with a free ride to avoid student debt altogether.
Worst Financial Decision
Using an ELP to help guide my investing before I knew how to do it myself. the upfront fees killed a years worth of growth on my daughter's 529.
Current Investing Strategy
Use low cost index funds to cheaply and effectively capture the market growth and build wealth slow and steady.
How do you manage your finances?
By myself. On occasion I have used a financial adviser (hourly rate ony) to review my status and plan for a 2nd opinion.
What tools do you use?
Mainly via excel, although I do use Personal Capital. I really enjoy using their retirement planning scenario tool to run Monte Carlo analysis.
I need financial help with...
Rebalance criteria and asset allocation shift strategy for 529s.
Favorite Authors
I enjoy Dave Ramsey and Jack Bogle and his Bogleheads.
Favorite Books
Personal Finance for Dummies by Eric Tyson, it started me on my financial literacy journey.
Favorite Movies
My favorite movie has to be Shawshank Redemption.
