Debbie wrote in to the Dave Ramsey show explaining how she lost money with her investment strategy and what she did in the 2008 crash. Her decisions lost her over $1,000,000!!! People make the worst decisions when acting emotionally when it comes to money and investing. AJ has made the same mistake as Debbie but only lost a few thousand.
After attempting college, AJ joined the Marine Corps. When he left active duty, he worked in retail for a few years before returning to college. Several years later AJ was awarded his Bachelor in Science in Computer Science. Soon after, AJ began working in the tech industry as a Junior Developer. AJ continues to work in tech, however, he began to cultivate a passion for personal finance. For AJ, the concepts began to click and he felt a need to help others understand how to be financially free. If AJ can do it, any Idiot can.
