Lonnie’s Situation

Hello Michigan!

My name is Lonnie Taylor, I am an eighteen year old audio/video producer with aspirations to pursue a career in Information Technology. 

Since I was about 9 years old I have had a true passion for working on music projects, When I was about thirteen, I began adding the art of video production to my audio talent (because a great audio piece plus a great video piece equals a complete project). I aspire to be a Information Technology Manager, because I also love taking computers, phones and other electronic devices apart to compare today's technology with the technology of the past.

Check me out on YouTube, Linkedin, Instagram, and Facebook.

Lets face it, financing can be boring! What makes it fun for me is setting realistic goals to ensure future financial security and/or freedom. Whats better than being debt free? 

I credit a money management class that I took in high school, to my urge of wise spending and saving. From that class I have developed 5 key budgeting strategies that will keep with me forever:

1) always shop with a list
2) use a budging application (if you have a smart phone) 
3) write your expenses down (it keeps your expenses organized)
4) only spend what you can see
5) reward yourself without spending a dime

My theory is, why go into debt for trivial items, when you can manage your finances wisely, get the things that you need without costly impulse spending?
