Today’s interview is with a fellow Yakezie member and one of my favorite bloggers, Evan from My Journey to Millions. Once I got into the blogging scene, his was one of the first I read, and we’ve developed a nice friendship through the Yakezie that has been great for both of us.
What’s the most frustrating personal finance experience you’d had recently?
The most frustrating personal finance experience I have had recently is the general well being of my 401(k). I am young so I know I can’t touch it for a LONG while, but watching it stay the same despite throwing money at it…
If you could go back and tell your 20 year old self one thing (about personal finance or not), what would it be?
Oh man, I’d LOVE to talk to 20 year old Evan. I would tell him ‘come on buddy you have got to save your cash!’ 20 year old Evan was a fraternity punk who was fine with going out 4 to 5 nights a week. Even if I just inspired 20 year old Evan that it was ok to drink, but that if heÂ just did itÂ not at a bar for two of those nights, man, the money I would have saved!
What is one thing you splurge on?
What do I splurge on? This question literally made me laugh aloud. It is funny because my friends call me cheap all the time, but compared to other PF Bloggers I am a spending fool. While I consistently turn friends down for Peter Lugars, The Wife and I go out to dinner multiple times a week.
Recently you’ve tweeted about going to both Yankees and Mets games. I’m a diehard Yankee fan. So what’s your deal?
I am not sure why, but I am always shocked that people read my tweets. While I have gone to multiple Met games and a Yankee game recently, I actually don’t favor one over the other. I am not a baseball fan but who turns down a free/or near free sporting event. I am a HUGE football fan, and while I always watch and cheer for the Jets and Giants, I am a big Atlanta Falcon Fan.
What are your two favorite posts?
I have been writing for 2 years so it is nearly impossible to narrow it down. From this year, I’d have to go with Four Words in Personal Finance that Piss me Off and The Wife Says them All the Time and Three Common Qualities of High Net Worth People. They were pretty popular so I must have been doing something right!
