Wanted: Readers Who Want Personal Finance Guidance

by Kevin on May 28, 2008

I’m looking for a small group of readers — say, 5 or 10, that need guidance on a personal finance level. Sort of like a case study. An example:

Reader Johnny Smith is $18,000 in debt, all on credit cards. He doesn’t know how to budget. He is completely lost, but wants to change his life.

I would help Johnny learn how to get his spending under control and setup a budget. The end goal would be to walk Johnny through the entire process and eventually have he and his family be debt free.

I’m offering this service free of charge.

I also must include this stipulation: I am not a paid professional, nor am I offering legally binding advice or services. I do love to budget and teach others how, so this needs to be seen simply as tips. If you must, always consult with your accountant/financial advisor before making any decisions based on what I tell you. I’m just a blogger. I might consider phone conversations to provide tips, but e-mail would probably work best. With your permission, I would blog about your travel out of debt (protecting your personal information, of course).

If you are interested in getting out of debt, I’d be happy to help. Leave a comment, or contact me. The e-mail address is on the About page.

Kevin, please don’t use details about my personal life as your “example”, even if you change the name.

Just kidding. Excellent idea! If anyone needs a personal referral about your worthiness as a financial consultant (or whatever you want to call it), send them my way!

I would be willing. I want to really have a budget, maxamize my money’s potential, and save with what I make. Half the year is gone and I have really made in landmark attempts into my financial goals. What’s next??
