Our #1 goal is to make it easy to learn about personal finances. We believe smart money decisions come from being informed about your choices.
At Teach Me! Personal Finance we do this by creating comprehensive financial guides, tutorials, and resources that are meant to be accurate and easy to understand.
Our Background and Expertise
Teach Me! Personal Finance (TMPF) was started by Ryan Rollins in 2016 to share his passion for personal finance. TMPF has since grown over the past few years into a robust online resource for all things money. We offer pragmatic guidance that helps our readers grow their wallet, while never charging for help.
So how we do make money? Some of our articles contain affiliate links that pay us a commission when a reader clicks or uses the product. We’ll always be transparent about this, telling you at the start of the article.
This doesn’t change our objectivity. We value your trust. We know it’s hard to earn and easy to lose. We’ll always be truthful in our reviews and assessments.
Ryan received his BSBA from Longwood University and his MBA in Entrepreneurship from the University of Louisville. He’s also a certified PMP. Ryan was first bitten by the entrepreneurial bug while working in product management for a start-up. It was also when he discovered his passion for personal finance.
Since that time, Ryan has continued to chase this passion while working in the finance, technology, and banking industries. Ryan lives in beautiful Richmond, Virginia with his wife and children.
