History of Invested Wallet
Hello! My name is Todd and I founded Invested Wallet in mid 2018 to help others learn about finances.
In 2014 I was in an apartment that I could barely afford, had a high car payment, two student loans, and then was let go from my job a few weeks before Christmas.
This left me with just a few dollars each week in my checking account to scrape by after bills. At this time I had close to $50k in total debt remaining, under $1k in an emergency fund, and a few grand in a 401k. (I didn’t even understand my 401k or contribute enough for the company match #FacePalm).
While it was a frustrating time, this was the motivation I needed to make changes to not only my finances, but also my own career path.
When I started this financial journey, I initially had little background in finances and investing.
I was taught about good credit, signing up for a credit card, and the basics of saving money — but I wanted to go further by learning how to build wealth and to never have to stress about money.
- I’ve financially educated myself
- I saved and invested six-figures
- Knocked out 100% of my debt
- Taught myself an entirely new career
- Increased my full-time income by 150% and escaped the cubicle life
- Maintaining a 75%+ savings rate when the average American saves less than 5%
- I’m self-managing all my investments
I’ve been featured and quoted in numerous publications like CNBC, Business Insider, MSN, Forbes, Yahoo Finance, MarketWatch, Fox Business, Time, Huffington Post, and more.
