Hi, I’m Nick True and welcome to Mapped Out Money.
First things first.
I know what it feels like to be stressed out about money. And I know how frustrating it is to get through school with no one teaching you anything practical about finance.
It sucks to get on the other side of college, start your career, and yet have no clue what to do with the cash coming in. You get thrown some money, a 401K account, and a health insurance plan with absolutely no explanations.
That’s why I started Mapped out Money. To document my own journey towards financial freedom and help you along the way.
Are You Tired of Financial Advice That Misses The Point?
If you’re like me, this isn’t your first time reading a personal finance blog. You’ve likely seen a lot of the tried and true financial advice before. It’s not that traditional advice is bad or wrong, it just overlooks a couple of major issues.
- We’re freaking human beings, not robots.
- Being good with money has more to do with mindset than anything else.
We have emotions. We have feels.
Managing your money isn’t easy. If it were, we’d all be Chamillionaires by now.
That’s where traditional financial advice goes wrong.
I could teach you investing strategies, budget techniques, and the best loan repayment plan ever but it probably won’t help.
There’s no finance information that will magically set you free.
That’s why I focus on the emotional side of money because we’re all walking, talking, buckets of feelings.
But It’s Not All About Ending Financial Stress
Managing your money is important for two reasons:
- Gaining financial freedom (escaping financial stress)
- Actually living the life you dream about
If you want to travel, raise a family, work a job you love, or just spend time with friends and family, money will be involved.
Mapped Out Money focuses on learning how to manage money not just to get stress-free, but also to help you reach those goals you have.
Life is short and your dreams are worth chasing. But you’ll only get there if you’re not weighed down by financial stress and poor habits.
That’s why I’m here.
Mapped Out Money Is For You If:
- You want actionable steps to help move you towards financial freedom
- You want to be free from money stress
- You’re ready to change your life and live your dreams
- You don’t want to settle for mediocrity
