My name is Jon the Saver and I’m the guy who runs Free Money Wisdom. I’m glad you stopped by! Hopefully this page will give you a little insight into who I am and what my goals are with this blog 🙂
From passionate hobby to part time gig
Unlike many of the personal finance bloggers out there, I don’t have a rags to riches story or a quest to become debt free. I simply have an extreme interest in personal finance!
Back in 2010, I found myself advising coworkers and many of my friends on what to do with their personal finances. Although I didn’t have any formal finance training, people came to me with questions about retirement, stocks, and how to get out of debt. Then one day, a couple people asked me why I didn’t have a central website to share what I knew. I thought it was an excellent idea and started Free Money Wisdom!
Since then, Free Money Wisdom has grown incredibly fast and has reached thousands of people and helped countless others. That’s my passion, to help others with their finances and get back to the basics. It’s a joy to see people read my articles and transform their financial lives.
Why Free Money Wisdom?
So, what’s the goal of Free Money Wisdom? I’m glad you asked! My ultimate goal is to help people from all walks of life learn the basics of personal finance health and get a head start towards retirement. In reality, I want to see everyone reach financial freedom.
To make that goal happen, this blog was created. I’ve written tons of articles and have many guest posters contribute their unique writing styles. I’ve tried to provide a wide range of topics and keep things as relevant as possible. You can check out my archives if you want, just click here.
If you would like more information on Free Money Wisdom, please get in touch through my contact page.
Not only is all the content on this site completely free, I have come out with a free 7-day e-course titled “Retire a Millionaire: The Only Guide You Will Ever Need!” It’s a compilation of all the tricks and best practices anyone can incorporate into their financial lives to become a millionaire by retirement.
It’s a long term focused series and will teach you everything you need to know about personal finance, saving, and tools that you need to succeed.
It’s been getting reving reviews and I get emailed all the time about how cool it is to have so much information in one place. One reader exclaimed “Jon, this e-course rocked! I’m looking forward to fast tracking my path to my first million.” It’s a joy to get emails like that. I know for a fact that you will benefit from the e-course. And again, it’s completely free and sent directly to your email inbox? Want to get instant access? Simply fill this form out:
