Hi. I’m the “PT” behind PT Money (“PT Money” was a nickname I had back in the day). I’m originally from “small town” Louisiana. I now live in North Texas with my wonderful (and frugal) wife and two talented little girls.
I created this blog back in 2007 as a way to share my own experiences with successfully managing my money, and to connect with others who were heading in the same direction. At the time I had too much debt in my life, not enough savings, and I was in need of a personal finance education.
Ironically, before this blog I had a career in financial auditing and public accounting. I’m a CPA, just like my Dad. My Mom is a writer. So naturally I found financial blogging as a passion. I love researching and writing about personal finance everyday.
I’ve had the pleasure of writing for US News & World Report, TurboTax, ING Direct, and PerkStreet. You can also find my work on countless other personal finance blogs. And I’ve even had a few TV appearances. But I prefer to be behind the keyboard.
I’m now fully self-employed, supporting my family using the income generated from this site. I’ve also gone on to create FinCon, the annual conference for financial bloggers like myself. It’s a blast, and I get to hang out with my buddies and heroes.
None of this would have been possible had I not taken control of my financial life. I’m now able to shift my focus towards early retirement, growing my businesses, and investments in real estate. Not to mention more time investing in my family.
I hope you’ll join me on this journey. Join the email list today and receive my 7 Bonus Financial Tips to help get you started.
