As part of Financial Literacy Month (#FLM2018) I am featuring interviews with fellow bloggers to get their take on the subject. Please join me in welcoming Joseph Hogue to the blog today.
Please tell me a little bit about yourself and your blog.
Joseph Hogue: I grew up in Iowa, not in the cornfields but corn-field adjacent to Des Moines. After service in the Marine Corps, I got my degrees in Finance and Communications before starting my professional career as a financial analyst.
I’ve actually got five blogs, all in the personal finance and money niche. It’s my full-time job but also love talking about money and helping people reach their financial goals. My project for this year is developing a new personal finance channel on YouTube to really connect with people and share our money challenges.
Money causes so much stress and arguments but it doesn’t have to be that way. Most of us go through the same money problems and have the same money questions. Just sharing our stories and asking questions can be a huge help in getting back on track financially.
