The adage ignorance is bliss does not apply to me. As I’m starting to gain more knowledge, I’m realizing just how ignorant I was. And it wasn’t blissful. Basically, this ignorance plain and simple cost me money. Money that put me in debt with credit card lenders, money that cost me even more, I’ve wasted it, and I’ve purchased the wrong kind of loans.

Making small changes, I’ve eliminated my debt, I’ve found greater personal success and self-awareness, I’ve started saving more money, I’ve improved my health, and started contributing back to the environment. Bottom line: I would have been better off knowing.

I find myself completely devoted to one cause at time. I tend to invest all of my energy into it, learn as much as I can, then I move on to the next subject of interest. Here, I can detail these causes and what I have learned and practiced. I personally believe sharing is the grandest part of learning.

My ’causes’ can be broken down into 4 main categories: Finance, Health, Home, and Personal Success. I do try to look to reputable and varied sources. Some of my favorites include: Suze Orman, Clark Howard, Napoleon Hill, Martha Stewart, Dr. Andrew Weil and Dr. Mehmet Oz.

My name is Sherry Bryington and I’m a thirty-something, born and raised in the South. I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration as a Marketing major. While in school, I traveled extensively and studied abroad in Mexico, England and France. I consider myself bilingual. My French has all but been lost by lack of use. Quel dommage!

    Hi there,

    I stumbled upon your blog recently and read your Roth IRA article. It’s good, just one thing.

    “John* starts putting $100 a month in his Roth at age 25 until he’s 65. When he retires he’ll have $1,100,000. (assuming compound interest around 8%)”

    The problem with that is the 8% is an annualized rate of return, not compound interest.
