Smart Money Bro is for those of us regular folks that want a common sense way to discuss and talk about money.  It started with a blog and blossomed into more. I do offer some services on this website, books to read, and an Ebay store to peruse.  But feel free to simply read and enjoy the blog posts, participate in the blogs with comments, and browse at your leisure. 

I'm a self proclaimed "mistake maker" when it comes to money.  I've made many of the mistakes with money that I discuss and talk about on the blog.  I have over charged credit cards, had a 500 credit score, mistakenly wrote checks that bounced, had a 20% interest loan on a brand new car, foreclosed on multiple properties, bought things I didn't need, paid on student loans longer than some of you reading this have been alive, owned a nice house with no furniture in it, etc etc.  I could go on. Managing money can be difficult for all of us. I'm no exception. I've just been able to figure a lot of things out when it comes to money, and those are the types of things that what I want to share with you.

The mission of this blog is to raise your level of confidence, self worth, and knowledge, about how to earn, create, spend, manage, save, invest, pass down, and leave legacies, with money.  It's all about financial empowerment. In order to be empowered you have to accept responsibility for your actions, be accountable for the results, and take ownership of the solutions.   


It's all about being smart with your money. 

Smart Money Bro!
