Who is Joe?
I’m a 27 year old guy who lives in Kansas and I really enjoy writing about financial topics that everyone can use.
I’m lucky enough to have a beautiful wife and a yellow lab to spend my days with. Outside of writing for this site, I use every day I have available to travel as much as possible. Whether if I’m backpacking through national parks, going on another road trip or traveling abroad, I’m continually amazed at all this world has to offer.
After graduating with my Bachelors in chemical engineering, I started working as a process engineer at a large chemical company. After getting some experience in the engineering side of the business, I decided to head back to school and ended up graduating with honors with an MBA focusing in finance.
While I found value in my MBA, I also found that there were a number of topics that I wouldn’t apply in what I wanted to do. Tack on the $70,000 price tag for tuition and years of commitment and it doesn’t make sense for a lot of people. After finishing up the second round of schooling, I decided that I wanted to help those out there who wanted to learn about the inner workings of businesses without having to foot the bill of another degree.
Why the New Business Playbook site?
As I was going through school, I found that all the sites that explained financial concepts talked in a language that I just didn’t speak before getting my MBA. These courses read like textbooks and always seemed to be cluttered with a bunch of advertisements which just ended up distracting me. No matter how hard I looked, I couldn’t find something that laid it all out there in terms that were easy to understand and apply. My goal was to create a guide that anyone can use and apply to the real world from any background.
I created this site and offer all of the lessons free because I’m all about internet karma. I won’t clutter the site with ads and if there’s any point where I could make money (say if I’m recommending a product where I could get an affiliate income), I promise that I’ll let you know. I hate being sold to and this is my way of treating others like I’d like to be treated. I believe that if I can offer you material that you value, eventually the value that I offered out will someway come back to me. Even if it doesn’t, if you can use this information to help progress your life or the decisions that you make, then I feel that I have achieved my goal with the site.
