Money, money, money, Must be funny, In the rich man’s world… Ok we are getting distracted, we are not here to discuss ABBA. No, we are here to talk MONEY. It’s a subject that’s often shunned, even though it’s a very important aspect of your life. After all, it seems you need that stuff for just about everything you do. It’s therefore absolutely essential you wise up about money, especially as they teach you so little about it in school. Perhaps this explains why, according to Forbes, 69% of Americans have less then US$ 1000 in their bank accounts. That’s batshit crazy right? You don’t want to be that statistic! Anyway, the good news is that YOU can do something about it. It all starts with some inspiration and motivation, and for that reason we listed 10 great money blogs we feel may help you achieve financial independence, or at least help you to wise up about the subject.
- 20 Something Finance
Mr Miller went from zero savings and significant debt after graduation to saving over 85% of his income in just a few years. His journey started by him questioning the all-work, no-play 40+ hours a week for 45 years standard, which for most people results in just keeping up with ridiculous consumer indulgences. The prospect of a lifetime of work for this? Unthinkable. He is now full-on embracing every aspect of a financially responsible, engaged, environmentally-friendly, low-impact, frugal lifestyle. And I’m chronicling my journey to financial independence on this blog.

They did this on two normal salaries with no lottery winnings or Silicon Valley buyout windfalls.
