ABOUT Mile High Finance Guy
Hi, my name is Olaf, and I am the Mile High Finance Guy! A millennial who has a passion for personal finance, from investing to taxes, my hobby is to optimize my savings when I am not mountain biking, hiking, or traveling in beautiful Colorado. I am fortunate to be engaged to a wonderful partner who continually supports my endeavors. Currently, I work as a financial advisor and provide winery consulting.
I decided to start milehighfinanceguy.com after working for one of the largest investment firms in the United States. While there, I worked in a financial advisory capacity and discovered the fundamental lack of financial knowledge hindered the success of so many. So, I set out on a mission to demystify finance with the help of this blog.
Regardless of how you found this blog, thank you for visiting, and I hope you will frequently return. I am a follower of the FIRE movement, but I believe that the purpose of Financial Independence, Retire Early is truly about living life on your own accord. It doesn’t mean saving money and dropping off the face of the Earth. Instead, it is about saving so that you can drop in on what truly matters to you.
Financial independence gives people the freedom to chase their dreams, no matter how wild they are, and that is all anyone can ask for in life now, isn’t it?
