Jim Wang

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 really enjoyed hearing Jim story. I can relate about coming up with a process that works with your money. It is all about creating good habits you can do each day to get on the right track.

    • Thank you Joe! And the habits can start small too, I find a lot of folks try to make huge changes that don’t stick. Slow and steady, bit by bit, that’s the way to win. 🙂 Thanks for listening, it means a lot to me!

        Absolutely. Love the So Money podcast and hearing your story was great. You are right, changing anything takes time. It’s hard to make big changes all at once with our finances and why so many fail. We have to do a little bit at a time. Start with one thing and work your way up.
