Hi! My name is Ryan. Welcome to Millennial Legacy. I hope you find what you are looking for. Millennial Legacy is about helping millennials make good financial decisions and leave a lasting legacy. I hope you come along on this journey with me.
A little about Ryan
I was born and raised in the Midwest. I grew up very middle class. There was always food on the table and a roof over my head but we didn’t have much room for extras. I was always interested in money and personal finance and opened my first Roth IRA shortly after graduating from high school. My parents helped as much as they could with college but I ended up taking out several student loans and when my wife and I got married in 2012 we were a combined $65k in debt! Not a great place to start your marriage financially.
Fast forward 2 1/2 years later and we were completely debt free! If we can do it, so can you. I have done a lot of things wrong and made a few good decisions along the way. Hopefully I can help you avoid the potholes as we travel down this road we call life.
My passions in life are serving the Lord, my family, personal finance and leaving a lasting legacy. I am the first to admit that I fall short in excelling in all of these areas but I try my hardest to get better everyday. I plan to chart our family’s financial course simply because I think it will be a good reference point for others to see how a real, middle class American family chooses to spend their money. My wife is the spender and I am the saver. It is a constant struggle between us but also gives us both some balance. Welcome to Millennial Legacy. Hope you stick around.
