Welcome to The Money Dojo. Thanks for visiting – we hope you learn something while you’re here.
You can call me CB and my two friends/fellow bloggers are MB and RB. We decided to create this blog to share our story, experiences, and aspirations of financial freedoms like we’re sure many of you have. American icon, Ben Franklin, said “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.” While we’re not rich to the likes of Scrooge McDuck, we consider ourselves disciplined and intelligent with our money and spending as well as determined to obtain our financial goals. We hope you enjoy what we have to say and hopefully by the end of this blog, we (yourself included) are a little smarter and a little richer.
I am a high school teacher/coach in Texas. I’m married, possess two college degrees, and have a pet golden retriever. My wife and I are also expecting our first child in June and I was also able to purchase my first home while I was 25! While happy with my current successes, I’m far from where I want to be. My brain is in perpetual motion searching for a way to grow my income and increase my time flexibility. It’s not a financial secret that letting your money work for you is what all great investors strive for, but getting over the hump and achieving this status stalls out many individuals with big dreams. I, too, have yet to get over that hurdle, but believe that my education and relentlessness will one day get me there.
The three of us started as high school baseball teammates, became friends, and eventually business partners. While each of us is at a different phase in life, we all have a common goal. We want to take control of our own financial destinies, and help others do the same. Armed with a thirst for knowledge and a passion for success, we’ll get there. We would love for you to take the plunge with us.
CB, MB, & RB
