What’s all the commotion? One could almost call it an uproar…

See what I did there? It’s funny, see, because you’re on Financial Uproar.

Okay, that’s not funny. Sorry.

I wanted to do some sort of big event for debuting this blog. I wanted to give out free stuff, but my cheapness won out. I wanted scantily clad models, but it turns out that any women worth ogling won’t come anywhere near me. I wanted a piece on CNBC or BNN. It turns out that everything else in the entire world is more important.

So instead you get this poorly written introductory post. Sorry about your luck.

I know what you’re thinking; I know you have questions. You’re wondering who I am. You’re wondering what exactly qualifies me to write a blog. And why this blog? Why yet another financial blog?

First of all, I’m a business owner potato chip salesman in my mid late 20s. I spent many of my younger years working at a grocery store, learning from some very intelligent and hard working people. I tried and failed at being a mortgage broker, and failed. But that’s okay, since Financial Uproar will be a fun new project. I tend to get bored easily, therefore I like having lots of projects on the go.

I’m Nelson Smith, and I’m pretty handsome. I mean, check out this sexy mug:

I’m not sure exactly what I’m going to focus on. There will be posts on personal finance, investing, passive income, (a passion I feel particularly strong about) career development, as well as all sorts of general business topics. It’ll basically be about whatever strikes my fancy, provided I can draw some sort of business parallel to it. So not to worry, no posts about my goldfish.

Actually, the joke’s on you. I don’t have a goldfish.

I’m on Twitter, so go ahead and follow me there. (financialuproar) You’ll be surprised at how witty I can be in less than 140 characters.

You can also email me direct at financialuproar@gmail.com.

Or you can stick around here and make a comment on one of the posts. I’d really like it if you did that. Pretty please?

Tell everyone, yo!
