Mike grew up on Long Island, NY and enlisted in the Navy at the age of 17 as an E1 (the lowest rank in the military). He worked his way up the enlisted ranks to E6 and an eventual commission as an officer. With 18 years of service and retirement approaching his focus shifted on becoming financially independent and building wealth.
Mike started Average Joe Finances to share his journey in building wealth and help others do the same.
Besides his career in the Navy, Mike is a licensed Realtor Associate in Hawaii, runs the Average Joe Finances blog, podcast, and YouTube channel. He currently owns real estate in Hawaii and Virginia and is starting to look into the commercial real estate space.
Mike is on track to fully retire (financial independence) at the age of 40 (in 4 more years)! He will only work because he wants to, not because he needs to. If you are doing something that you love for work, can you really call that work?
The mission of Average Joe Finances is to help people realize their growth potential no matter their income level. We want you to become financially independent and build your wealth! We believe anyone can do it as long as you get yourself in the right mental capacity to attack your goals.
