Philip Taylor wanted to discover that idea that would allow him to escape the safe, but unsatisfying career path he found himself on. Before he knew it, his personal finances had become a burden. He found himself more dependent on the corporate paycheck and felt trapped with his car loans, student loans, and poor spending habits.
Then he discovered some weird brave people on the Internet who were willing to share their success with money, side-hustling, and building a business. It was like he’d uncovered a secret society of people who were exposing the way the world actually worked and he ate it up. Those unknowing mentors gave him the fuel, confidence, and accountability he needed to start on my own journey towards financial freedom and entrepreneurial success. Three years later he left my job and started working on my side-hustle full-time. Since, he's had the pleasure of writing for US News & World Report, TurboTax, ING Direct, and PerkStreet. You can also find his work on countless other personal finance blogs. He's even had a few TV appearances and other features.
He's now fully self-employed and the creator of FinCon.
