If you’re visiting from today’s Yahoo Finance article on personal finance for young people, welcome.

I’m a recent Stanford grad and this is a blog on personal finance and personal entrepreneurship for college students, recent college grads, and everyone else. (Featured in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Boston Globe, US News & World Report Online, etc.)

This blog is me ranting about a few things and trying to get the points across. Getting started is more important than being the smartest person in the room. Making mistakes is ok. Action is more important than reading 50 blogs. Ordinary actions get ordinary results. And there’s a difference between being sexy and being Rich.

Here’s a quick guide to get started:

  1. This is a fairly informative blog. I read two of your posts, ” I hate Indian network marketers so much.” It reminded me of my sister’s (and her husband) experience with an unnamed legal plan a couple years ago. It started with excitement and ended with disgust. While I was in college, I was recruited by an unnamed MLM long-distance company. That lasted about 1 month before I got disgusted. My biggest problem: I didn’t want to talk to anyone, especially my friends, about the program. 🙂 The second post, “Your College is Not a Technical School,” reminds of few folks that I worked with in the past. They earned strong grades in college but their application in the workplace was less than noteworthy. Anyways, I couldn’t agree with this statement more…”Getting started is more important than being the smartest person in the room.”

  2. I’m glad I found your blog … I’ve been preaching this same “thing” to my family, friends and clients for years. I am a 28 year old FA adviser for a fortune 500 bank and I see so many people today that just don’t have a clue about there personal finances and don’t care to learn. I too think its a lack of financial education and too many “crappy” products to choose from.

    Shoot me an email … It’s good to hear from someone who thinks rationally!!!

    thanks,

    Shane

  3. I found your site through Yahoo! Finance and am looking forward to reading your articles.

  4. Great summary for newcomers like myself!

  5. I saw your article on yahoo finance, but I failed to see anything new. It seems everything you write is simply a rehash of what everyone else has already written without offering any real advice.

  6. Telling people that buying and holding is the only strategy to becoming wealthy is pretty depressing. The buy and hold mentality is why people relinquish their financial freedom for passive returns in mutual/pension funds, while watching their returns be consumed by management fees. I concur with your general advice, but am disappointed in the most important crutch to securing a solid, financial future: being educated enough to refrain from the complacent mentality of allowing your investment potential to be someone else’s responsibility. Individuals must take the time to simply educate themselves of their conventional and “alternative” investment options.

  7. What makes you an expert?

  8. Good blog so far, keep it up!!

  9. Yep, I saw this too on Yahoo … thank god that there is at least someone out there that can think rationally. I guess that I’m too a preacher of sound financial advice — you know, people giving up the thought of investing just because someone else that they know lost this and that, or that it’s too “hard”. Feel free to visit my blog sometime. Cya!

  10. Eric – Spend a bit of time on this blog reading some of the articles, and you may just be surprised at how many fresh insights there are. A personal favorite is “Barriers are your enemy.”
