Our Story

Jon Dulin

Jon Dulin founded Money Smart Guides back in 2011 with the simple goal of helping people improve their finances.

It’s simply the end of a chapter and the next chapter is jut beginning.

Since its founding, Money Smart Guides has grown into one of largest online centers for people to learn about money.

I’ve always struggled with debt and was about to give up hope. But the articles I found renewed my hope and helped motivate me to finally become debt free!

I didn’t realize I had a negative money mindset until I read about the differences between the wealthy and poor. I started to implement some of the ideas and am seeing s positive change in both my finances and happiness.

Kevin M., Florida

I avoided investing because I didn’t understand it. Luckily I found this site that explained it to me in a way like never before. I slowly started to invest and over the years, have built a small nest egg. While I’m not rich, I finally have hope I can retire one day.
