Hi and welcome to Focus Your Finances, my personal finance blog. I created this blog as my personal creative outlet and assist readers to improve their finances.
See, I own and operate 2 companies in the financial and accounting industries – Lifetime Wealth Design and Roberts CPA Group – and while I thoroughly enjoy the activities, I want to help more people become financially more successful.
My name is Kevin and I am a CPA (Certified Public Accountant) and CFP(R) (CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER (TM)). I became a CPA in 1996 after passing all 4 parts on my first attempt…back when the exam was on paper and you had to wait 2 months to get your score. That was a long 2 months. I became a CFP(R) Professional very recently at the beginning of 2017. I don’t tell you all that to impress you of my qualifications but to impress upon you that despite all the education and experience, I make all the classic mistakes.
I have made all the mistakes that you can make early on in my 20’s.
- I have lived above my means
- I have had over $25,000 in credit card debt at one time
- I have purchased cars on 100% credit to impress people I did not like
- and tons more
I am brutally honest and will be with you. I value your opinion and I hope you can see my sincere desire is to help you not only avoid the same mistakes I made but to thrive as we embark on a journey toward your financial freedom.
If you want to learn how to save money and everyday things, I will help you do that.
If you want to find additional ways to make a 2nd income, I will help you do that. To understand why that 2nd source of income is so important, read EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE A SIDE INCOME SOURCE .
If you want to determine best way to pay off debt, I will help you do that…and many more opportunities to improve your finances.
If you want to start a blog, just like I have, then I will help you do that also.
Thank you for your time in reading my story. I very much appreciate it!
