Welcome To Middle Age Money Man!
Who is This Middle Age Superhero?
Okay, superhero is a bit much, more like a highly caffeinated super-ninja that writes about his life, personal finance, and the intersection of the two. Both the website and podcast deal with many issues that we all deal with on a daily basis. It doesn’t matter if you are a millennial or middle age, you will find something useful.
I have had a white-collar job in IT and computer programming since I graduated from college. Along with that came long hours, stress, and lifestyle changes.
I found myself going in and out of periods of “funks” and feeling like I was in a “rut”. Times where I wasn’t sure exactly what the whole purpose of me being here was or if it all was really worth it.
I was diagnosed with Depression when I was in my twenties and put on medication. I tried to ignore it for the most part, so for twenty years, I have dealt with it the best I could on various medications that have done, essentially, nothing.
When I eventually found myself over $75,000 in debt between student loans, credit cards, personal loans, and vehicle loans, my life became even more stressful and the Depression became worse. I had to make the decision to change my habits and get out of debt. I also had to make the decision to get professional help with my Mental Health.
I decided to not only start my debt-free journey, I also decided to start my Mental Health journey by beginning to see a therapist and to get my thoughts together.
I am on my way to becoming both mentally stronger and debt-free and am on a mission to share my successes and failures with the world as well tell the stories of others.
