Fearless Men’s Personal Finance Site is LIVE! See what makes Fearless Dollar different

why the fearless dollarJohn and I are proud to announce we just launched our latest website Fearless Dollar. It’s more than a site for men, it’s for women too. Below is the inspiration that caused us to branch off and dedicate Fearless Men’s Personal Finance section into a website all it’s own.

Men and women both confront fear head on every day. Don’t you? Tough calls and close shaves are the name of the game. Maybe it’s not physical danger you’re presented with every day, but at the least it’s facing insecurities, making choices that define who we truly are, or taking a stand for someone else that can’t.

We are faced with all kinds of challenges thrown at us every day. It’s the tough choices that often define who we are.

John and I started the Men’s Lifestyle blog Fearless Men a year and a half ago. A recurring theme is having confidence, overcoming fear, as well as getting your finances in order.

Money is central to what a lot of men feel they are defined by. We’re not advocating that it should be that way, but ultimately for a lot of men it’s a fact of their life. And we understand that. As society continues to rush forward and people are staying single later into life, money and the doors it opens are becoming much more defining for women as well.

Fearless Dollar: It’s Not Just For Men

We’ve discovered that, literally, half of Fearless Men’s readers are women. Many have approached us saying that if we simply inverted the subject matter it would apply directly to them. A close friend of mine has implored me to start Fearless Women. Well, that domain name is taken! At the least, we want to devote Fearless Dollar to both audiences.

You’ve got to check out one of Fearless Dollar’s first posts from Catherine @ Plunged In DebtWhy Women Need to be Fearless with Their Dollar.

Courage – Not Fear—When it comes to your finances

We’ve also got feedback that men, and women, don’t just struggle with confidence in every day circumstances or life-changing decisions. But that they also are challenged with confidence when it comes to knowing what to do with their money, knowingly being confident that they are making the right financial decisions, and having the courage to overcome debt.

Become Wise With Your Money

People want to know how to take their money further. That’s the central theme, along with overcoming fear and becoming wiser, at Fearless Dollar.

When your income gets deposited into your bank account, it’s time to look those numbers straight in the face. Maybe they’re low, maybe they’re high.  It doesn’t matter, at Fearless Dollar we want to educate in the following:

  • How to make informed personal financial decisions that will take your money further
  • How to have the courage to overcome debt
  • How to be wise with your money
  • How to invest your time, your money, your very life into what is most important!

On top of all that, we want to write specifically to men and women and their gender’s fears when it comes to finances.

How Money Affects Men and Women Differently

Men can allow their character and self-worth to be defined by their financial status and what possessions they have. We’re going to write about that—the emotions associated with men and money, and the false perceptions.

Women can allow worry to consume that spot in the back of their minds about what is going on with their family financially. Some women readers have asked us to write about how to ask for a raise for work, how to learn to say “No” and how to be confident that when they pursue life-goals—financially, relationally and with their careers—how to do so confidently while overcoming fear.

John and I have both seen the world. From Japan, to India, to Central America, to Eastern Europe and all across the US and Canada. There’s been a ton of adventure and lessons learned. We hope to bring more light and add something to people’s lives.

Money isn’t the only thing that’s important in this life. But we know it’s hard to move forward with your bigger goals and aspirations without having your financial life in order. We want to lend you a helping hand. And we want your ideas, feedback, thoughts and inspiration as we push forward on this journey.

Our Very Best,

Todd and John
