Let me introduce myself and go over a bit of why I created this website.
First, my name is Kurt and I’m in my mid (or more accurately late) 40s, am married and have two kids.
I wanted to create this site in order to document what I’m doing with my family finances and hopefully help others out with the path that I am blazing right now.
Why do this for someone in ones 40s, and why now?
As I write this, I have one in college, one in high school and both my wife and I work. Particularly right now, we are in the midst of “self quarantine” and “social distancing” with the COVID virus and the stock market having crashed and lost over 30% of it’s value in the last 30ish days. What crazy times, huh?
My purpose isn’t to give financial advice per se, but rather document an alternative route I’m taking to juggle all of these financial hurdles. I’ve certainly had my share of struggles over the years financially, but if I can help one or two people see that there IS a way to pull this all together, all the better.
How exactly am I going to accomplish this? Generally speaking, I’m going to work on increasing my cashflow in order to match my expenses in order to “retire”, pay for college, and design my life as I see fit. I don’t necessarily have all the answers, but I plan on documenting my journey along the way, including cashflow statements for my various endeavors.
