Welcome to The Dollar Build
What We Do
We write for people who are genuinely interested in achieving financial freedom. We know you take this stuff seriously. Heck, it can be life-changing. That’s why we take it seriously too.
What Makes Us Different
We are passionate about delivering well-researched, highly-actionable content that is deserving of your time and attention. That’s why we work hard to write quality articles that will add value to your life. Our goal is to make our content so good that by the end of each article, you’ll not only know how to take action, but you’ll actually want to take action!
We also recognize that this isn’t about us.
Nobody gives a damn what our net worth is or how much money this blog generates each month. Nobody is interested in reading volumes of stale encyclopedic literature about stocks, bonds, and annuities. Nobody gets excited about being told what they can’t do with their money (no more lattes or trips to the mall). And nobody wants another lecture about the importance of budgeting, saving, and investing.
You’ve heard it all before and you don’t need to hear it from us for the thousandth time.
But if we all know what we should be doing, why aren’t we doing it?
Instead of recycling the same old information, let’s talk about your challenges and figure out how you can solve them. After all, we don’t just want more information, we want solutions!
Why You Are Here
You’re probably here because, like most people, you want a few basic things when it comes to your money:
- You want to stop worrying about money
- You want to take charges of your finances (i.e., crush debt, spend smarter, make more)
- You want to live a rich life (and not just financially)
- You want relevant, tailored information that you can use to better your situation
- You want immediate results
Regardless of what brought you here, we’re happy you’ve stopped by. And by the way, you’re in the right place. We think we can help . . .
How We Can Help
There’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all formula for managing finances. That’s what puts the “personal” in personal finance.
We recognize that different people may need different things before they are ready to jump into action.
Maybe you need more information about why a particular subject is important. Maybe you already know it’s important but you aren’t sure where to start. Maybe you’re feeling overwhelmed and need help deciding which financial product or service best fits your needs. Or maybe you’re just looking for a little inspiration or dose of encouragement that comes from hearing what has worked for other people like you.
We try to approach personal finance topics from various angles so you can acquire whatever information you need to start making better financial decisions and building wealth.
At the Dollar Build, we tend to focus on a few basic concepts:
- Eliminating debt
- Building daily habits that invite long-term success
- Increasing your income
- Making investments that make sense for you
- Mastering major purchases and life events
The bottom line is this: Our number one goal is to help you improve your financial behaviors by focusing on what you can control.
Who We Are
By now, you are probably wondering who we are and why you should pay attention to anything we have to say. Long story short, we are brothers – both millennials. One’s a consumer finance attorney. And the other an ex-pro ballplayer turned insurance guru. We both eat, sleep and breathe personal finance. Learn more about us here.
