First smiling dad post

For a long time I have wanted to share my experiences with the world. There was never a good method in my mind. My wife told me there are a lot of mom blogs but not that many from the dad’s. That was reason one to start a blog. I recently joined TripAdvisor and started giving reviews on places I visited. Shockingly, one of my reviews had 521 impressions in two weeks. I discovered I enjoyed writing and I might have talent for it. That became reason two to move ahead. 

I expect to share a few thoughts on my mind going forward, from raising kids, special moments, financial experiments I have undertaken, creating a strong marriage, lessons from my past and more.

Thanks for sharing this journey with me. I hope we can all learn and have fun together.

My story is one of tragedy and redemption. We've made many mistakes along the way regarding our money. Our goal here is to show you how to take care of your money life long, and as much as we can, help the Earth along the way. I call it sustainable personal finance and ethical capitalism. Currently, I am a part time writer for Cleantechnica and part-time licensed financial professional, along with being a full-time dad.
