Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $25

I have been working as an IT Professional at various large companies since 2009. I am very interested in the personal finance niche and helping recent college graduates.

I have a blog where I post on various personal finance topics and have held a few small investing and 401k workshops at my day job. I also do recruiting, where I travel to colleges to hold resume review workshops and mock interviews. I also interview recent graduates to see if they are a good fit for my company.

I'm here on Elance looking to write about personal finance...

Service Description

Ok, time to dive a little deeper into my main skills!

Blogging/Writing
-----------------------
I enjoy blogging and writing in my free time, and have been doing it for a few years now. I am passionate about helping people who are uncomfortable handling finances; typically college students.Most of my writing has been by hand or is an unpublished book or three.

To that end, I have recently started a personal finance blog (http://cashturtle.blogspot.com/) where I have been posting fairly regularly.

Finance
-----------
As you may have gathered from the fact that I have a personal finance blog, I am very interested in the finance niche. I've been inhaling all of the information I can get my hands on regarding this subject: books (from Total Money Makeover to The Bogelhead's Guide to Investing to Rich Dad, Poor Dad) and podcasts (Stacking Benjamin's, Smart, Passive Income, The Side Hustle Show, Listen Money Matters) are the main sources. I spend around 3 hours a day learning about the world of personal finance, and have done so for months.

For a long time, all I did with the information I was learning was give advice to family and friends when asked. Recently, I have found an outlet for this passion by writing in my blog. I also help new, fresh-out-of-college, employees at our company wrap their heads around investing, 401ks, but mostly answering the age old question: "What do I do with all this money I have now?"...
