About Me

Ryan Deckard

Financial linguist, Tech Guru, and overall good guy. I strive to help my friends and neighbors get a better grasp on their finances with a sprinkle of my personal Technological expertise through my professional career. I started this blog October of 2018, while deployed overseas, before I converted my primary home (liability) to a rental investment (asset). I let this blog fall to the side as I felt I didn't have the expertise to speak on the subjects I was most passionate about.

I decided around 20 years old I was going to be financially independent no matter what it took and have failed at the same business twice since then (lol). I purchased my first property at 22 years old to add the first rung in my ladder, and have purchased a couple more since that time. Now, 25 with 2 businesses and a family trying to push the envelope.  

I've gained so much knowledge in the last few years that I've been spreading to my immediate circle and figured it was time to bring the blog back to life, this is me. I'm a successful Real Estate Investor, Small Business Owner, and Father of two! Hang on tight and get ready for a great experience. If you'd like to learn more about me and what I do, contact me!

J. Money Inspired Millionaire To-Do List

It's finally time to get this on paper for the first time ever! Of course I have various spreadsheets and apps talking about my expenses, assets, and my goals for increasing one while minimizing the other(honestly could go either way), but putting out a list to the universe of what needs done to break the ceiling on a 7 figure net worth is totally different.  Obviously this awesome idea comes from  J.
