Why I Started This Blog 2


SophisticatedSpender.com is about being smart with your money.

My mission is to share my story. My credit score went from the low 500’s to 800! I share why I decided to get my credit together and HOW I did it. I also write about all of my side hustles. I grew up in a very bad neighborhood on the south side of Chicago where people didn’t own homes or go to college and now I own a few rental units and graduated with a degree in electrical and computer engineering.

It’s not how much you make but how you spend what you make. We all often have the same money problems, issues, situations, and questions. No matter where you are in your wealth cycle (rebuilding credit, using your credit for good, or investing), I am here to help you along the way. I am here to share all that I’ve learned and all that I’ve been through so that you don’t make the same mistakes I’ve made!

    Kudos to you for bossing life right now with a Computer Engineering degree and rental properties. I am trying to finish up my degree now in Computer Information Systems and read about rental properties all the time but haven’t made the jump to actually do it. Congrats!
