Why Did I Start DumbWealth.com?

This is top money-question people ask me: “How can I build financial independence and retire early?”

I recently started this website because I’m sick of the self-serving bias and misinformation generated by the wealth management industry. If you want to build wealth and gain financial freedom, you should be sick of it too!

There’s a great saying by Upton Sinclair:

“It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends on his not understanding it.”

This phrase pretty much captures the problem with the wealth management industry today. The industry is highly motivated to support the status quo, which has unfortunately failed many individuals. The industry is addicted to its own cooking and generally fails to recognize the better, common sense choices available for everyday people trying to create financial independence.

I have spent over 20 years in the world of finance and I’ve seen it all.

Frankly, I find it sickening.

But I have a plan and I am on track to be financially independent and retire early. I’ll be honest, I screwed up in high school, was a troubled young adult and didn’t figure things out until later in life. Many people lost all hope in me. If I can get on track to gain financial freedom there’s no reason others can’t. I want to share what I’ve learned so hopefully you can get there faster.

Gain Financial Independence and Retire Early

With this website, I will share the truth about building wealth. I will also help you shape your habits and mindset so building wealth becomes a way of life, rather than something you think about twice a year (if you’re lucky) when meeting with your financial advisor. 

Did You Know: Most of the value provided by a financial advisor is derived from managing your behavior and making sure you stick to a well-designed plan. Is that really worth about 1/3 of your future life savings?

The #1 tip for building wealth is to become more self-reliant. I’d like to help.
