Live smartly…Spend wisely…Be happy -- I have 5 simple rules to live by and have been teaching my tips to friends and family for years. Most roll their eyes, but the smart ones actually listen, and they’re glad they did. I guide people on everything from finding a good deal on shoes to helping them escape extreme debt. I really enjoy giving people the chance to realize they can afford the things they have been longing for, whether it is to be free of a debilitating loan, to go on a dream vacation, or simply the ability to treat themselves to a cupcake once in a while.
Why should you believe me? Upon moving to NYC from Upstate NY after college, I made very little money and had to maximize every dollar I earned. That lifestyle taught me many different techniques on how to spend as little money as possible while still enjoying everything the City has to offer. Since then, through job promotions and salary increases, I have never lived above my means; I am debt-free, and own a boat, a car, and a vacation home. Let me help you be as happy as I am with my 5 easy tips.
