Ep. 7 - J. Money on Minimalism in Business and Finance Journey to Freedom

    • Places & Travel

Today, I’m speaking with J. Money, who is probably one of the most well-known figures in the personal finance blogging space. A father of three, a self-proclaimed minimalist, an avid coin collector and hip-hop fan, J. Money is also an award-winning personal finance blogger with over 12 industry awards, such as “Blog of the Year” and a “Lifetime Achievement” award. He’s been named a Top “Social Influencer” in personal finance & wealth and is consistently featured in media  such as Forbes, Inc Magazine, New York Times, LA Times, Kiplinger, Entrepreneur, and Business Insider.

He most recently launched a new curation project in partnership with The Motley Fool called “All-Star Money” . With over a decade building communities online, Jay’s projects have now reached over 40 million views. J. Money’s blogging career began with a financial blunder and since then he’s been a very transparent money experimenter and his projects continue to connect the online world with the “real” world. J. Money is a full-time, self-employed, blogger who has publicly chronicled his net worth to the masses for over 11 years, which has now--after 139 net worth reports-- surpassed the 1 million mark.

J. Money has had many successful online ventures, but the two he’s probably most known for are BudgetsAreSexy.com and RockStarFinance.com. He currently blogs on his personal site jmoney.biz. He’s very active on Twitter under the handle @BudgetsAreSexy and is well-loved for his authentic interaction and sense of humor.

In today’s chat we’ll cover everything from skateboarding and our personal strange collections to how we reconcile that with our minimalist philosophies. We get into what decluttering his online businesses felt like and how he detached from any identity being wrapped up in his entrepreneurial endeavors. We talk about knowing what “Enough” is and drawing limits around oursleves. We talk about how he named his sites and how he ended up in the world of personal finance. We also talk investing strategy and so much more in today’s interview.  Tune in to learn more.
