Let the Money Monk be Your Workout Partner

I'm sure some people are going to be wondering why they should take advice on how to make a bunch of money and how to be financially independent, from a guy who doesn't make a lot of money and isn't (yet) financially independent.

And to some extent I agree with people who think that. If I want to ask somebody about bodybuilding advice, I would ask Arnold, or somebody who was very successful at it. And that IS how I do it; to get info on early retirement I read Jacob Fiskar and Mr Money Mustache, et al. They have done it, and there is a lot to learn from them

But that's not all of it. Even though you may ask a successful body-builder for lifting advice, but you can't work out with them. They are on a different level, doing things you can't be doing. Doing things you shouldn't be doing at this point in your journey.

And that's where I come in. I want to be your workout partner. I want people to be able to see me accomplish my goals as they happen, not tell you about it 10 years after the fact. I am doing it right now, in today's world, in today's economy.

Sure I lack the 'street cred' that these other guys have, because I haven't done it yet. But isn't that what makes it interesting? I am starting from the same place many of you are, and you can follow along on the journey.

Wouldn't you rather go on a trip with somebody than have them tell you about it afterward, and then have to do it alone?

I expect this dynamic to help me as much, if not more, than it does my readers (if there ever are any). And that's why I plan on continuing this project, regardless of whether it actually becomes a successful blog. It is the equivalent of my "before' picture as I start seriously working towards my goals.

Let's do it.
