We were overwhelmed by the sheer amount of information out there when we set out on our own financial journeys (urgh, hate that word, sorry about that.) The interweb, books, podcasts, e-guides, traditional media…it goes on. Where do you start?
And then all the different niche topics that were spread about in different places: clearing debt, investing, how to reduce costs, Financial Independence.
We just didn’t know who to believe or where to start. It can get really confusing.
What we really wanted was one place, one site, which had done the hard work for us. We wanted information distilled down in plain and simple language that we could use to help us make important financial decisions that would improve our money game and tailor to our personal goods.
We talked about finance a lot. Like, all the time. We would shoot the breeze for hours (beer or coffee at hand, naturally) something we just heard on a podcast or read in a book. Did we agree with it? Did the numbers stack? Could it work in the UK?
