“You write about finance? Why are you out drinking then?”
I get asked this often. I usually avoid the question about work because I find it to be the most awkward form of conversation. Why do we all default to asking about work when we first meet someone?
Even more important…
Why do we all think that personal finance has to be boring? Saving money is about creating options for yourself and having fun by cutting out the crap that you don’t need.

As you read this, I’m either preparing for, in Chicago or leaving Chicago. It’s Money Smart Week and I’ve been invited to speak on a panel and to appear on Chicago Tonight that same day to speak about financial issues and young people.
Lots of new readers have been finding Studenomics. Many of you aren’t sure where to start or what to expect. I wanted to help you discover what’s on here.
Financial freedom and topics in that area are usually a huge scam. Around here we use real life stories and real examples. I might cite a night out in Panama City Beach or a story from something stupid that I did in college. I never just make crap up.
I believe 100% in my content and know for a fact that I can help you deal with the biggest financial issues in your 20s that are holding you back from being financially free.
What’s financial freedom all about? It means different things to different people. It could mean any of the following:
- Having the money to quit your job.
- Having choices for your next career.
- Being able to travel with your friends once per year or whenever you feel like it.
- Going out for dinner when you’re hungry.
- Buying drinks for friends.
- Not spending your paychecks on debt.
Sound like fun? Of course it is!
