I think one of the reasons I fell in love with personal finance is that like all other stems of math, there seemed to always be just one right solution. In high school, I could BS my way through a written English exam with the best of them, but a math test? You had to know your stuff. And that’s what attracted me to this field: I liked knowing that if I made the right choice, I would end up with enough money in the bank to support the life I wanted to live.
However, once I started writing this blog, I quickly realized that personal finance wasn’t all black and white. Yes, it’s a lot of numbers, but there’s also a lot of emotion that goes into managing your money properly. People out there have a million different circumstances that can affect their financial decisions, and those in similar situations may choose different paths that ultimately lead to the same success.
