Starting with why.
I believe that everyone has the choice to live a comfortable and fulfilling life. We/I/you aren’t forced to do anything in fact, unless someone is twisting our arm, we choose to do everything. Once I accepted this fact I realized that I am where I am from the result of my own choices. Harnessing that belief, I believe I can create the life I desire and influence others to do the same by tracking their finances and planning for the future.
I started Earning Paper as a 23-year-old college graduate after attending Western Washington University studying Business Supply Chain Management. My intention is to document my finances from day 1 of my professional career as I work toward financial independence. Already I was used to living on minimal paper so by increasing my lifestyle slightly above top-ramen and inexpensive beer has allowed me to do the things that excite me while saving for the future.
What excites me? Here’s a few things:
- Learning new things
- Staying healthy
- Getting outside of my comfort zone
- And see pictures below
