Hi, I’m Nick True and welcome to Mapped Out Money.
I know what it feels like to be stressed out about money. And I know how frustrating it is to graduate from college and know nothing about practical finance.
It sucks to graduate, 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. I want to show how I’m using money as a tool to do the things I want to do. I’m here to fill in the gap that college jumped right over.
Most Financial Advice Misses The Point
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 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 out there, but it probably won’t help.
There’s no information that will magically set you free to do whatever you want.
That’s why I focus on the emotional side of money because we’re walking, talking, buckets of feelings.
It’s Not About Getting Rich
Learning personal finance isn’t about getting rich. It’s about using money as a tool to help you get what you actually want.
Maybe it’s traveling, having a family, finding meaningful work, or just spending time with the people closest to you. No matter what it is, money is involved. You can’t escape it. You’re going to need it.
And you should be able to use that money to your advantage, not be burdened by it.
Life is short and your dreams are worth chasing.
That’s why I’m here.
