For all of the ‘don’t keep up with the Joneses!’ talk.. there’s a lot of competition, a lot of rules, a lot of conformity involved in some personal finance communities. I’ve tried to read the Mr Money Mustache forums for example, or Dave Ramsey Facebook groups. That wasn’t for me. I don’t want to abandon society’s rules just to pick up a new set somewhere else.. that just didn’t make sense to me. If people say ‘Don’t be normal, be weird! But be weird exactly like me tho..’ that’s just off for me I can’t do it. This is about learning and figuring out who YOU are. What would YOU do with the new knowledge you have?
