Hello Grasshopper, and welcome to Kung Fu Finance!  It is my hope that through the help of this site you will learn not only to master your money, but also your mind, and MOST importantly, to do all of this while having fun along the way!  No matter where you may be currently, or where you have come from, remember that the past is the past and we have no control over the past, but we CAN learn from it and use it to control and create the future of our dreams:

Caine: Is it good to seek the past, Master Po? Does it not rob the present?
Master Po: If a man dwells on the past, then he robs the present. But if a man ignores the past, he may rob the future. The seeds of our destiny are nurtured by the roots of our past.[1]

Are you ready to accept responsibility for wherever you are currently with your finances? Do you want to learn how to master your finances rather than having them master you?  Are you willing to open your mind to new ideas and let go of your preconceived notions and fears about money so that you can live the rich life that you deserve?  Then read on, you have come to the right place!

Kung Fu Finance is a site created by individual investors, for individual investors. It’s a place for people who want to:

  • Learn the ins and outs of personal finance and investing in a supportive, collaborative environment,
  • Talk honestly about money, the “taboo” subject, without fear of scorn or derision from more “advanced” masters
  • Go beyond the “average” advice spoon-fed to you by Wall St. and learn how the TRUE “smart money” thinks and invests
  • Have a blast while learning and growing your wealth!

You may find this site acts as a “Secret Decoder Ring” for more advanced black-belt sites, such as zerohedge.com. You may find we discuss the “oh-so-serious” subject of money in a somewhat irreverent way. You may find useful resources, tools, guides, and videos to help you get further ahead with your own finances. You may find more “How To” and “Why To” information than “What To” information (e.g. “How to Buy Silver Without Losing Your Shirt in Commissions, Fees, Shipping, Storage, and Taxes” and “Why on Earth Would I Buy Physical Silver Anyway? Doesn’t It Tarnish? Isn’t that for ‘End of the World’ Freaks?” versus “The #1 Silver Stock You MUST add to your portfolio!”). Although I’m sure we’ll sprinkle some of that in, too, when we just can’t keep our mouths shut about something we think is a good investment. No matter what, I hope you will find USEFUL, ACTIONABLE information that will help you dramatically improve your financial situation, whatever it may be! And most importantly, I hope you find it to be FUN!

So if you’ve had enough of feeling confused and stupid and frustrated and are ready to “Go all Kung Fu!” on your finances, then I hope you will join us!

— Kung Fu Girl (<– yes, you read that right, GIRL…Girls can master money, too!  And kick major ass while doing so!)
