Personal Finance Ladder

Oh, you’ve never seen this before?

It is my honor to be the very first
to introduce you to r/personalfinance

✨🌈 Imagine
an entire community of professionals

  1. who aren’t making money off of you
  2. who’ve already answered most money questions
  3. who’ve distilled that advice into easily digestible documents

(You can still ask ultra-specific questions anyways)


Long-term, I want everyone to own their own business, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves: once you’ve got an in-demand skillset, you can start building your cash 🅱️uffer. More on this another day.

Do you know a more sustainable path
than a great, predictable salary?

Your ability to take risk
isn’t about your stomach for stress,
but your ability to try again
& roll with the punches

“Oh but I like taking risks
…I have nothing to lose!”

Dead. Wrong.

From personal experience,
that’s risking years of your future
because you don’t have enough 🅱️uffer,
🅱️uffer to 🅱️ounce 🅱️ack to 🅱️usiness


You can’t afford to take risks
…yet

How are you supposed to be creative
& make a creative, productive mess
if you’re IN a mess?

Think “business in the front, party in the back” except the other way around:

🅱️uffer in the 🅱️ack
Freedom in the Front

You need to have
space & clarity at night
to feel fully free during the day

Before we talk products & services,
let’s get you financially secure
so you can sleep at night


It’s not a matter of
IF you learn this information,
but HOW LONG before you do
& AT WHAT COST?

Manage your finances
so they don’t manage you

Take another look at this image

🅱️uild your 🅱️uffer
Start climbing your own ladder
Grow your emergency fund with purpose

Is this very relevant to you?


Did I offer a clear next action?


Do you want more on this?


I love hearing your
thoughts & questions!
