New to Man Vs Debt? Welcome and Start Here!

I’m glad you’re here!

Our message is simple: The first step to living a life of passion and purpose is to remove the barriers that hold you back. At Man Vs. Debt, we hope that by sharing a transparent and honest account of our own journeys to remove barriers – primarily our debt and excess clutter – we can empower and inspire others who find themselves on similar paths. Our motto (and the tagline of this community) is:

Sell Your Crap… Pay Off Your Debt… Do What You Love! For us, the first two parts of this motto have allowed us to more passionately pursue the third.

Meet Me

I’m Dave. Like many of you, I loved the mission of Man Vs. Debt and have followed its journey for many years. I reached out to Baker multiple times over the years as I wanted to carry on the Man Vs. Debt mission. Thankfully, he responded. 🙂 One of the things that captivated me about the Man Vs. Debt mission was the fact that the content was so unbiased. Too often I found that personal finance websites try to sell you a product or a service. I loved how Man Vs. Debt provided great content that really engaged the community to sell their crap, pay off debt and do what they love.

My Bullet Points

  • I was the California High School State Chess Champion. I like board games.
  • I was blessed to be able to retire at 35. I decided to keep working as I really enjoy it.
  • My wife and I have been married for 10 years and have 4 daughters, 7 and under. It’s a blast and a bit chaotic at times.
  • I hate debt. My family had debt growing up, and I saw how stressful it was for my parents.
  • I worked at Google in Mountain View. It was like getting paid to be on a playground.
  • I love angel investing in startups.

My Favorite Random Products

  1. SlumberPod – I have 4 kids, what can I say.
  2. SOFI Checking and High Yield Savings Account (4.6%): It feels like this bank is actually from 2023, not like my 4-5 others banks that feel like they are from 1923. Also, I love that SOFI has promo codes that can provide up to $325!!
  3. Ooni Koda 16 – I just got this as we love making pizza.
  4. World Of Hyatt App- I am a sucker for hotel points.
  5. Aura Picture Frame – My grandparents are almost or in their 90s, so this picture frame makes it easy for us to give them up to date pictures. It’s like Instagram for 90 year olds.
