I can answer questions that anyone that has never been taught about finance might be afraid to ask an expert. For instance, I can answer credit questions (how to get it and keep it), how to buy/sell your first home (I've bought 3), finance a car, invest in your 401K, and live a debt-free life. I can't answer complex questions that involve legal issues. I am here for "the little guy" who doesn't know how to buy something properly using credit, or needs a good system to remember to pay the bills.
I am fortunate enough to have a lawyer as a step-parent and a penny-pincher for a mother! I was taught from a very early age how to get credit, keep it, and buy things for myself. Young people today just aren't taught this at all and they don't want to ask "experts" for fear they will be talked down to or thought stupid. I'd like to be a sort of "Establish your Finances" expert that caters to the young crowd or those who would like to learn about finances.
I have a BS in Recording Industry Business Management, which means I was taught how to run an effective studio or record label. My minor was Business Administration, where I learned accounting and finance. I obtained my Masters of Business Administration in 2011.
