rich & REGULAR is a lot of things.
It’s a blog, a mindset, a voice and a wake up call to name a few. You might even say it’s our love story but if we’re really lucky—it’ll be a movement. One that reverses trends, empowers families and changes lives for the better.
Born out of a bottle of wine overlooking nature’s beauty, the idea for rich & REGULAR came to us in 2015, but the real work started years earlier.
We met as co-workers in 2012 and clicked immediately. When we weren’t working, we traveled, had tons of fun and slowly began to build a life together. With no blueprint to follow, we somehow gained the courage to tackle some really difficult conversations about money. The outcome was a multi-year plan to eliminate debt from our lives and to build real sustainable wealth.
Between 2013 and 2018, we paid off $200K in debt, boosted our net worth and learned a lifetime of lessons along the way.
So here we are, ready to share and to serve as an example of two regular a$$ people living good…on the low. Thanks for visiting our site. The best is yet to come.
