Thanks for visiting my blog! My name is Jeff and I decided to start Maximum Cents to help people become debt free, increase their net worth, and achieve financial independence!
I have been interested in personal finance since graduating college in engineering. When I started working full time I began to learn as much as possible about saving, investing, and financial freedom. Since then I have read several books on these topics and started following personal finance blogs.
I also worked toward my MS in engineering at night which was fully paid by my employer. Throughout the years I was aggressive about paying down all my debts including my car loan and student loans. A few short years later and they were completely paid off!
The Great Recession hit after I had been working for a couple of years and had just started to become serious about investing. I made several mistakes along the way but also learned some valuable lessons during that time. Luckily, my net worth was relatively low back then. Since the end of the Great Recession I have been able to take advantage of one of the longest bull markets in history.
I hope to share with you what I have learned and continue to learn in order to have a positive impact on your net worth. My goal is to provide practical advice on how to achieve financial freedom.
The benefit of financial freedom is that you no longer have to rely on your 9 to 5 job to live. You can continue working in your current field, become an entrepreneur, or enjoy early retirement. The sky is the limit for your potential to obtain maximum cents!
