Change your financial future
one money choice at a time.
Where We Started
My name is Aaron McHone, and my wife and I started out broke.
We started our marriage making a combined $34,000 per year, with a load of debt on cars, credit cards, and student loans of a lot more than that.
But that wasn't the problem.
The problem is that we thought we were completely fine.
We looked just like everyone else. We felt just like everyone else.
We were normal, and we thought normal was good.
Until one day we sat down to create our first budget together, and that was a disaster.
Or was it?
Where We Are Today
While our financial journey started off rocky, we eventually figured things out.
We spent 3 long years tracking every penny we spent in order to pay off all of our debt.
We learned the value of saving up a full 6 months of living expenses in an emergency fund, so we did that too.
We decided never to borrow money for a car again, so we started paying cash for our cars.
Eventually we bought a house, but we didn't like the idea of some random bank owning most of it, so we paid it off in just 7 years.
We learned there is nothing more powerful for building wealth than investing in both pre and post-tax investment accounts for a really long time, so we learned how to do that as well.
And while my wife spent the last 10 years being a stay-at-home mom to our now 4 young kids, in 2019, I finally retired from my job as a User Experience Designer so I could be a stay-at-home dad as well.
And now I want to share our financial journey with you, in hopes that it will help you create a solid game plan for...
- – managing your money.
- – destroying your debt.
- – learning to invest to build wealth.
- – retiring long before you ever thought possible.

Money can be a tricky game, but often the first step to winning is simply realizing that doing what everyone around you is doing is the wrong way to play.
I hope to hear from you soon.
