In Progress


Inferno is an Introductory Course
that starts you on The Fenix Path.

Many modern financial concepts and lessons in this course are taught using quotes, metaphors, and ancient wisdom to solidify your knowledge. Because my background is in healthcare, I will sometimes use medical metaphors to drive points home. Our goal is to change the way that you perceive yourself and the world around you.

Fundamentally, financial freedom begins with you.

It’s time to cut the crap. This is not a guide that encourages you to blame your problems on inequality, the economy, white collars vs blue collars, capitalism, consumerism, etc. Sure, all that stuff is a problem and we’ll talk about it, but you need to primarily focus your attention on the things you can change. Personal Finance is a game for which you aren’t taught the rules. The reason you lose this game is because you don’t know how to play. We’ll fix the things you can change and address the big picture stuff at the same time.

Don’t be surprised that personal finance appears to be so complex & mysterious. Honestly, it’s full of overblown hype, confusion, and outright deception meant to discourage you. The point is to make you feel guilty about not doing enough or doing it right. We can’t just blame the system. If we do that, we’re not taking personal responsibility to step up, learn this shit, and get started. When people bitch about why their lives are so shitty, they usually complain about minor things that don’t matter. They do this because it lets them escape the responsibility for their own actions and behavior. Don’t listen to morons. Keep your head in the game. Only take advice from people you would trade places with. If that’s me…continue on. If not, no love lost.

I don’t need you to be an expert. You don’t have to be a Nutritionist to lose weight. You don’t need to be a Mechanic to fix a car. You don’t have to know every little detail about personal finance to be wealthy.

Who will succeed in finance faster?

  1. Pretentious assholes & know-it-alls with inflated egos who love to listen to themselves argue minor points or suggest buying cryptocurrency as financial advice.
  2. People who ignore those dumbasses and get started.

Here are some concepts I need you to understand right now:

You don’t have to know everything to get started. You don’t need to be perfect.

Don’t think that you have to follow this path at blazing speeds. This will just cause you to do nothing at all. This is a marathon, not a sprint. To get from financial despair to a place where you can breathe easier could take you 5-7 years…or it could take you 90 days…I don’t know. That’s up to you. Let’s do things one step at a time; how long you need to spend on each step is your decision. Perfection isn’t necessary at first. I’d rather get started and get most of it right than do nothing.

Doing something is better than doing nothing. It’s better to go most of the way than none of the way.

Learn from my mistakes. Make your own.

Ordinary actions get ordinary results.

You are not special. Neither am I.

There’s a difference between wealth and ‘the illusion of wealth.’

You are not BROKE; you are BROKEN.

Time to get your ass to work.
