In Jacob’s Own Words:
As a nationally-recognized personal finance writer for over 10 years, I have written professionally for The Balance, The Spruce, LendingTree, Hedge With Crypto, Investopedia, Money Under 30, and other widely-followed sites.
I have also been a featured expert on CBS News, MSN Money, Forbes, Nasdaq, Yahoo! Finance, Go Banking Rates, and AOL Finance.
My background includes five years as an Enrolled Agent at an accredited CPA firm, where I prepared tax returns for individuals and small businesses.
An expert in teaching others how to budget, save money, pay off debt, invest and take advantage of credit card rewards, I love to help others find the best ways to manage their money.
In 2018, I quit my job and my family decided to sell everything (including our home) to take off on an adventure. We traveled the country in an RV for nearly 3 years, visiting over 38 states, 20+ national parks and eventually settling in the Gulf Coast of Florida.
