Hi, my name is Ben. I am the founder of Making of a Millionaire and the author of every article you will read on this website.
I have been obsessed with personal finance and learning how to manage money, ever since my parents declared bankruptcy and lost the family home to foreclosure in 2010.
I spent the next 10 years continuing my journey of educating myself about money. This education was both formal and informal.
On formal education, I earned a Bachelors's and a Masters's degree in Finance & Economics.
On the informal side, I consumed every book, video, blog post, and podcast that discussed personal finance.
Education was nice, but it wasn’t until I began implementing what I learned that I began feeling more hopeful about the future.
Before long, I had paid off my first loan. Then the next. By 2015 I was debt-free.
By 2016 my wife and I bought our first house.
Then we started investing. We bought another house and began building real wealth.
As our wealth grew, the memories of that family bankruptcy seemed further and further in the rear-view mirror. My stress and anxiety began to melt away and I was able to sleep at night without my mind racing and problem-solving.
By 2018 I knew it was time to start sharing what I learned about managing money and Making of a Millionaire was born.
I want to be clear that I am not a financial advisor and I do not work in financial services. You should conduct thorough research before making any financial move. You should absolutely, never make a major financial decision after reading a blog post. I work very hard on the content you will find on this website, but I will make mistakes, and more importantly just because something worked for me does not mean it will work for you.
I hope you find the articles, videos, and courses created by Making of a Millionaire to be of value to you. Please feel free to reach out to me directly if you ever have feedback or suggested improvements you would like to see.
