About

Welcome to Shut Up and Budget!

My goal is to help you take control of your money, instead of the alternative of letting your money control you.

My name is Jason. I am a 29 year-old husband and father of two. Professionally, I am the Controller of a multi-million dollar manufacturing company. Educationally, I have a degree in Accounting and was recently minted with an MBA.

With that being said, you would think I was relatively smart with my personal finances. WRONG! I spent too many years letting my money control me and ended up with a sh** ton of debt to prove it. Now, my family and I are working to become #debtfree and I want to help others control their money so that they don’t go down the same path.

In comes Shut Up and Budget. What I realized is that I did not have the proper tools to control my money when I was younger. I spent what I wanted and balanced my bank account at the end of the month, when I should have been creating a budget and controlling my money at the beginning of the month.

Good thing this happened to me (maybe not so good…), because now I am going to help you! Through this blog and my social media accounts (make sure we connect), I am going to provide you with the tools you need to control your money. Whether it’s a spreadsheet, knowledge, or motivation, I will give you the tools you need to set yourself up for financial freedom.

I hope that you find the content I provide useful and that you use it to CONTRL YOUR MONEY!
