My Story

Over the years, I’ve written many autobiographical entries for The Simple Dollar in an attempt to understand my own financial history, the mistakes I’ve made, and the values I’ve learned. Below is a collection of these, assembled in an order that creates something of a financial autobiography.

    Lessons from My Grandfather in the Garden
2. Early Profits … Lost
3. Cash & College
4. The First Taste of Real Money
5. Love & Marriage
6. The Yuppie Years
7. Here Comes Baby
8. Meltdown
    The Longest Night
    The Day After
9. The Road to Recovery
