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.

The original Jon spent a year writing about his own financial journey starting with an introduction in Jon Grows Up and ending with a post on how he quit his day job to follow his dreams. This unfortunately means that he has left the WellSpent team along with his witty and insightful blogs.

No need to stress though as I will be taking over the blog. My name isn’t Jon but I’ve decided to leave the blog as it is and simply continue to share personal experiences of my financial journey and musings.

Have a look at my first post “A new Jon” and follow my financial journey,

Note: This blog does not contain financial advice but rather insights to experiences and knowledge along with a healthy dose of common sense.

You get to decide if you are wealthy

On a scale of Jones to Kardashian, how wealthy are you?

Hi, again. I’m Jon. The clueless member of the WellSpent rat pack. Disclaimer: We are not a rat pack. I might be the only one of us…
