Today’s guest is a self-proclaimed money moron turned self-made millionaire. (All in 13 years!)

Scott writes at and podcasts at Financial Rockstar. Scott is a husband and father to twins. He helps people get the resources needed to being a rock star with money, paying off debt, and retiring early (just like him!).

In this episode we talk about selling the car, taking a loss, and driving a beater, how not having a car payment was the single greatest thing he did for his financial life, downsizing from 2200 square foot home to a 1,000 square foot home with squirrels in the attic, how he put 50% down on a house and paid off the entire mortgage 6 months later and even how to set goals.
