I'm new to the Blogosphere, but since you've taken the time to read my blog, I figured I'd explain who I am and why I created Gen Y Financial Freedom. My name is Jonathan Pollard and I'm a recent Duke University graduate. '05 to be exact. And like most of you, I have a mountain of student loan debt from my undergraduate education. But instead of just putting my head in the sand and saying that it's impossible to dig out from this huge hole, I've decided that I'm going to take control of my financial future. Actually, I decided that way before I graduated from college.
But enough about me. My primary reason for creating this blog is because I see too many people my age - I just turned 24 in April - spending freely and not being concerned with their credit scores and making their money grow. And I want to change that by disseminating information about how to get rich, in a fun and exciting way.
Let me pose a question to you that shocked me when I read the answer. Do you know how many streams of income the average millionaire has? Not one, not two, not four, but seven! Seven, ladies and gentleman. That means that while Ms. or Mr. Millionaire is engaged in her or his primary pursuit to put food on the table, she or he has six other ventures going that bring in income. How would you like to have six other sources of income? I bet that'd get those student loans paid off quickly.
Join me in a quest to learn how to be financially propserous life and thank you for reading.
