My name is Derek, and I have my Bachelors Degree in Finance from Grand Valley State University. After graduation, I was not able to find a job that fully utilized my degree, but I still had a passion for Finance! So, I decided to focus my passion in the stock market. I studied Cash Flows, Balance Sheets, and Income Statements, put some money into the market and saw a good return on my investment. As satisfying as this was, I still felt that something was missing. I have a passion for Finance, but I also have a passion for people. If you have a willingness to learn, I will continue to teach.

    Read your post about car payments. I cannot say I agree with that due to the fact that all I have ever owned was a used vehicle. There are good and bad points to this I will agree. Some are money pits and break down due to wear and tear over the past years. I want to be able to get in my car and have comfort and a beautiful ride one day. If you are 6’8″ as you say in the post,there are far more comfortable vehicles for you out there. My dad used to spend money on items he liked and always said,”Enjoy your money, because you can’t take it with you.”

    • Cars are not for comfort, they are for transportation. I fit in my car ok, but I only sit in it for a maximum of an hour a day. As for the statement, “Enjoy your money, because you can’t take it with you”, it is true, but that doesn’t mean you should spend it all either. There’s a fine line between experiencing life and being completely foolilsh. Just make sure you have a hefty amount socked away for you old age.
