Featured on Mint!


Regular readers of this site know that I’m a big fan of mint.com. I’ve been using it for years to track my spending, and at this point it’s an integral part of my un-budgeting system. It turns what could otherwise be a tedious burden into a relatively mindless exercise that takes me a total of about 20 minutes per week.

Well, last week I was featured on Mint’s blog, and let me just say that it was pretty exciting! I had the opportunity to share my story with a company I really admire, and of course get some nice exposure in front of their audience. Very cool!

But the real reason I want to share the interview with you today is because I think it does a really good job of explaining exactly why I started this financial planning practice aimed at helping new parents. If you’d like to learn a little more about my views on what financial planning is and how it can help just about anyone (even if you don’t have a lot of money), this is a good read.

There are even a few practical tips thrown in there, so you might be able to get something out of it that you could start using today.

You can read the entire interview here: Personal Finance Interview with Matt Becker on Family Finances.

Let me know what you think! I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Start building a better financial future with the resource I wish I had when I was starting my family. It’s free!
