Welcome to Teen Financial Freedom!
Welcome to Teen Financial Freedom!
This is it, my first blog post. For years I’ve contemplated starting up my own blog, but I never really got around to it. To be honest, I was always super excited with the possibilities of starting one, but I always found reasons to avoid it. So many questions started to become embedded in my mind. What do I write about? Who would want to read it? What would others think of me? And of course, what if I fail?
But, today is finally the day these questions go to rest. The day I stop doubting myself whether I fail or succeed. Today is the day I launch TeenFinancialFreedom.com!
My vision for Teen Financial Freedom is to educate and empower teenagers across the world in taking control over their finances. I want all of those who are willing to learn, work hard, and make changes to be able to find true freedom in their life in regards to their finances.
Who am I?
My name is Jacob and I’m a 16 year old living in northern Colorado. I love the outdoors, particularly, skiing and hiking in the mountains. I love spending time with my friends and family. And of course, I love to kick back and relax. But when I’m not doing of those things you’ll usually find me working at my job at a local grocery store or working on my businesses. Throughout my life I’ve owned a lemonade stand, mobile car wash business, lawn mowing business, an eBay reselling business, a travel agency with my dad, and my most recent endeavor, this blog. I’ve been an active member of my local FBLA chapter, participating and placing among the top positions at state for my business plans.
I’ve been blessed to live a stable life, including financially. My family is not rich by any means, but we are comfortable. Nonetheless, I’ve always strived to create my own successful financial life as a teenager that could carry into the rest of adulthood. Along my journey, I’ve researched and experimented with many different methods of being smart with my money.

Am I an expert?
By all means, no! I am not an expert or really anything close to one. However, I am a teenager with real-life experience in the world of finance. I have a job, pay for my own utilities and other expenses, budget my own money, have bought my own car, and have several side businesses that I am working on.

As much as I am interested in making money, I understand it’s not everything. To me, money is a tool that is necessary to live. It’s not necessary to find happiness in life. Because, no amount of money will ever leave you feeling that way. In my mind, money gives you freedom. All of us have a limited amount of time in this life. Why would you ever want to spend your life locked away in your 9-5 job wondering how you’re going to pay the bills next month? If money can give me freedom to do what I want with my life, than I’m certainly going to do whatever I can to work toward that.
So there you go, that’s what Teen Financial Freedom is all about. I hope you stick around to see what we can accomplish here! Here’s a link to our latest blog posts.
