Hi, I’m Alex! Welcome to My Common Cents!

I’m all about financial wellness. To me, this means having an understanding and control of your own money so that you’re not only prepared for what life throws your way, but you’re also living a life in which your goals, hopes and dreams are actually attainable!

Whatever it is that you want and love in life, I want to help you figure out how to afford it.

It’s time to buck up. No more excuses about why you’re in the situation you are — accept it and decide it’s time to create better for yourself.

It won’t be easy. The journey that’s gotten me to where I am today has been full of more twists, turns and rock-bottom moments than I ever could have imagined. But I’m thankful every day that I decided to take control of my life. That is one decision you will never regret.


Taking control of your money is about giving yourself more choices — the freedom to do what you want, have what you want and go where you want — whenever you want.

My mission is to provide you with the information, resources and tools you need to take control of your money and create a life of which you’ve always dreamed.
