As part of Financial Literacy Month (#FLM2018), I will be featuring interviews with fellow bloggers to get their take on the subject. Please join me in welcoming Jim Wang from Wallet Hacks.
Please tell me a little bit about yourself and your blog.
Jim Wang: I’m a thirty-something software engineer who stumbled into my entrepreneurial journey of being a personal finance blogger. I started my first blog soon after college when I was trying to figure out how money worked while working my first full-time job. I remember being handed a thick magically stapled employee handbook that explained all my options at Northrop Grumman, including a then-complicated math equation for my 401(k) employer match contributions, and I realized that I didn’t really understand it. I happened to experience this around the start of blogging and WordPress, so I decided to start a blog. Fast forward about fourteen years and my new blog, Wallet Hacks, continues that tradition of trying to understand money (though I know more now!) by demystifying it for myself and, hopefully, for the folks who read it!
