Jon’s Blog

Welcome to Jon’s Blog!

Jon’s blog is a personal finance blog written about real-life experiences and situations that pertain to posts on the WellSpent site. If you have a look at the Journey Viewer you’ll see how these fit in as responses to financial principles laid out in the Deep Pockets series.
