Scott Sherman is a financial coach and personal finance blogger who has written about the intersection of behavior and personal finance. His work has been featured in a variety of publications, and he coaches people across the United States on how to gain better control of their financial lives.
Scott's interest in personal finance began when he made a career change from newspaper journalism to higher education and he realized he had no idea what he was supposed to do with his small 401(k). That research led him down the rabbit hole of financial independence and early retirement, where he found a passion for helping people like him better understand their finances. Scott is married and has a daughter and two adult stepsons. He is a Michigan native who now resides in Utah.
