What if I told you...?
I've mentioned the Red Pill before on this site. I think it's a great allegory for becoming aware that financial security and freedom is possible for normal people.
I read another version of it this morning in one of the Breaking Smart emails. Basically it talked about grey pills, which are small chances to reflect that you get when you encounter new information.
The Red Pill is the life-changing awakening, but the grey pills are the ones that reinforce and expand that knowledge.
For me, reading Your Money or Your Life was my Red Pill, and reading the blogs in the resources section has provided a drip feed of grey pills to keep me going.
The most important thing about personal finance is believing that it is relevant and important to your life. The next most important thing about personal finance is learning more about the nuts and bolts of it.
I hope this website can help you do both.
Recently I've been getting lots of questions via email, Facebook, comments on the blog, or the contact form on this site. This is very much a good thing. Questions help me learn more about things I am not clear on, and get new ideas for posts.
If you have a question about personal finance, any question at all, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
