This site is all about helping you leverage your money to accomplish your life purpose. If you want to find ways to save money, invest money, and live a more purposeful life then this is the place for you.
One of my guiding principles is that money is simply a tool. Use it well and you’ll get the results you want. Fail to learn how and the results could be damaging. I’m here to help.
If you want to learn how to make the most of the money you’re making, then come along for the ride. I promise to deliver awesome and original content every month that is designed to help you with your own financial goals.

A Little About Me
Hey, I’m Rich!
Yep. That’s actually my nickname.
I’m a husband, full-time youth pastor, part-time seminary student, and a totally obsessive dog owner. I love to read, write, work out, and talk about money. I plan to keep my real life identity mostly a secret, but if you really want to get to know the guy spending entirely too much time on this website, reach out via email and let’s chat.
So hear I am… putting my thoughts out on the internet.
Why I started PF Geeks
1. Help that Scales
I absolutely LOVE getting help friends and people in real life get a handle on their finances. The idea for this blog started when I began to create resources to share with the people I meet up with. Ultimately, my hope for this blog is to share these resources in a way that can scale up and help thousands of people learn how to take control of their finances and make their money work for them.
2. Bridge the Gap
Every single year millions of people graduate college with no clue or idea on the basics of personal finance. Worse yet, they are graduating with the most debt to their name of any generation in history. For far too long, I’ve heard people say, “I wish I had learned this in school”. The tough fact we need to face is that school systems are failing to teach people the absolute basics about money: how to budget, how to save, and how to invest. I want to bridge that gap by giving people in their 20’s the guidance they need to manage their own finances.
3. Faith and Finances
I want this to be a blog where faith and finances can meet to promote and encourage a biblical worldview on money. Stewardship is all about using our time, energy, and resources to maximize God’s kingdom being made known.
4. Share My Own Experience
I’m always looking to learn more and I’m trying to take my own personal finances to the next level. As I grow, I want a place and platform to share.
Who Are You
It might seem weird to have a section about you, the reader, on my about page. But here’s the thing… the articles I write, the advice I’m giving, and the whole message of this blog is put together with you in mind.
There’s a good chance you are…
Age: 22-28 years old and life after college is just starting to take form.
Stage: Early in your career and life seems crazy and unorganized. You want more out of life and you’re willing to put in the time and effort to get there.
Faith: Your belief in God is the most important thing in your life and the driving force behind all that you do. The way you see the world, treat others, and act every day is shaped by this foundation of faith. And maybe this isn’t you, but you wish it was.
Financial Picture: You’re making decent money but you’re overspending and don’t really know where it’s going. You’re setting aside some money each month but you don’t know what to do with it. Buy stocks? 401K? Roth vs. Traditional IRA? Pay off debt?
A Full Life Looks Like… Doing more than spending 40 years working for other people trying to save up enough to have an above average retirement. You want more out of life. You want an amazing marriage, a fulfilling career, and to use your life to bless others. Being a good steward of your resources means providing for your family while giving to Gospel-centered causes.
If you read that and said, “That’s me!” then I need you to do something.
Email me right now with one money question you have. Seriously. It can be anything. I’d love to get to know you and talk about what your financial dreams are.
What You Can Expect
Every month my goal is to produce one mega-piece of content that is truly the best thing that exists on the internet for that topic. Those articles will be long, incredibly detailed, but extremely practical to help YOU manage your money and live a better life.
- January: 150 Proven Ways to Save Money
In between these massive posts, I’ll be sharing some shorter, lighter, and easier to consume posts. These will cover everything from saving money and investing, to my favorite books and lessons I’m learning.
