Hi, I’m Jacob! I love empowering regular, non-finance professional folks to take control of their own money through education. I do this by unraveling the myths around investing and personal finance that are ever-present in today’s society and providing an objective, knowledge-based perspective.

Hello and Welcome! My name is Jacob, a husband to a wine-blogger wife, father to a bouncy-boy toddler, and I'm the owner/author of My Personal Finance Journey. By day, I am a scientist working in bio-pharmaceutical development. Personal finance has been my hobby since 2007 when I started teaching myself through books (that finance B.S. degree didn't teach me much!). Learning how to save, adopt a frugal mindset, and invest my own money soundly has allowed me to have a savings rate > 50%, increase my net worth by > 20 times, grow my career, and always do what I love.
