Jim Wang, Founder of WalletHacks.com & Bargaineering.com

Our guest today is a pioneer financial blogger, one of the first to sell his blog for 7 figures. Jim Wang founded Bargaineering.com. It was a side hobby that eventually brought in a full time income — and then less than 5 years later he sold the site for $3 million. PS. He says he started the blog because he was bored!

Today Jim has a new online venture, a website called Wallethacks.com, launched last fall. It’s pretty spectacular in its vision and delivery. Articles, tools and tips on building money systems, how to live fully, save, spend wisely and pay down debt.

Jim’s been featured in the New York Times, Baltimore Sun, Entrepreneur and Marketplace Money. And now, excited to say, on this podcast.

He also created a special link for So Money listeners offering an exclusive contest and some great materials so check it out by visiting wallethacks.com/somoney.

Three takeaways from our time together…

  1. His growth strategy for Wallethacks and how it will differ from how he built his first successful blog.
  2. Growing up with immigrant parents. What financial lessons did he learn as a child?
  3. How to master your money even if you’re forgetful like Jim!

I must say, while the entrepreneur life comes with its own set of doubts and risks, I wholly enjoy the many, many extraordinary opportunities I get to experience.

CBS This Morning: Why are consumers hoarding their cash?

With rising employment, more Americans are earning a steady paycheck, but much of that money is going both unspent and not invested — leaving banks brimming with cash. I stopped by “CBS This Morning: Saturday” to discuss the trend and some ways people can invest that extra money.
