Plan for the American dream

My name is Javi, Mexican born, future American, and first-generation college graduate. That beauty next to me is my wife Taylor.

After graduating from college (a feat I never thought possible) we paid off over $34,000 in debt.

I have dedicated this site to help other D.R.E.A.M.ers and DACAmented students like myself pay off debt and build wealth.

Personal Capital

Great budgeting tool. What I like about PC is the fact that it tracks your net worth. So it will keep an eye out for how much you owe, how much money is in your bank and invested.

Credit Sesame

Credit Sesame is a great site to begin monitoring your credit. Even though I do not use credit, It is still a great tool to help you monitor your money and prevent identity theft.
