Why this blog?

In the weeks to come, I will be posting 10 “rules” on how to be more financially responsible. My blog is intended to help us become smarter about how we spend our money.

I didn’t come up with all of this advice by myself, but I have listened to some wise people – namely, my father, Stephen Pope, who is a certified stock broker and successful entrepreneur, and Dave Chilton, author of The Wealthy Barber and The Wealthy Barber Returns. I have used these strategies myself, and to my surprise – they actually work.

 You never know when you’ll encounter a rainy day, so it is best to start saving and plan to succeed financially no matter what curve balls life throws at you. Knowing you have some cash will definitely reduce stress and give you some incentive to save for things that really matter to you.

This discussion is informative, and may not be appropriate for all situations. If you have different advice that has worked for you, please share. Remember, the goal here is to equip ourselves with the knowledge  we need to be in control of our own hard-earned money!  


  1. I'm eagerly awaiting this advice!

  2. I need this! I am the worst at saving. I am one of those people who like to throw it all on my Visa and pay it off afterwards. I'm trying to change my ways, so I'm looking forward to your advice.
