New Regular Contributor! – Will Lipovsky of First Quarter Finance

Hey, everyone!  Most of you already know me but this is my ‘official’ introductory post for CNA Finance!  My first guest spot was back in May!  Seems like forever ago in blog months!  Since Josh is busy rocking projects such as, I’m your new weekly contributor!

A bit about me…

I grew up on a farm Nebraska.  It’s right in the middle of the US if you didn’t know. 😀  Being smart with money got planted (get it?) in my head early.  With the help of my parents, I began investing in my Roth IRA at age 10.  I ended up losing most of that money due to insider trading but that’s another story for another day.

As I grew up, I hustled like an adult struggling to pay child support.  Some weekends I worked 5 jobs!  I always had fun though.  I knew it was stupid to work a job I didn’t enjoy.  If I did, I would always be itching to get off the job so I could have fun.  So if I could have fun while at the job… I could dedicate nearly all my free time to making money.

I earned, saved, and invested all throughout school.  And no, I didn’t put my grades on the back burner.  I just did my homework on my snare drum during morning band practice.  When I graduated college at 21, I tipped over the $100k net worth mark.

I’m telling you this just to add a little credibility to my 24-year-old self.  I’m young so I feel I have to prove myself! 😀 Today, I work for a large financial services company as a bank analyst.  Snoop my LinkedIn for more details.  The purpose of my job is to make banks more profitable.  But honestly, I relate more to being a blogger/freelancer.  This personal finance community is where I belong! 😀

Let’s get personal

My favorite movie is Up in the Air with George Clooney.  I’m also powerless against the ‘suggestions’ side bar on YouTube.  I love me some cat videos.

When I’m not on the interwebs, I’m an outdoorsman… errr, outdoorsperson(?), foodie, traveler, farmer, cyclist, reader, gearhead, and lover of anyone with a good story to tell.

What I’ll do for you

I will write informative articles focusing on specific issues such as predatory lending… things like that.  All of which will include a healthy dose of wit and sarcasm.  I probably hate dry articles more than you.  Getting a minor in political science gave enough boring reading material to last a life time.

I’ll see you here each week (maybe more often if you guys will put up with me!).  You can also read my stuff twice weekly on my blog, First Quarter Finance where I focus on making money in life ASAP.  Go figure. :)  Feel free to contact me any time. Thanks for reading!  I’ll see YOU again soon!
