Who is Nolan Martin?
And How Does He Know About This Stuff?
I’m a husband in my late twenties who is fascinated with the options financial stability creates.
I graduated from the United States Military Academy with a degree in Management. In my military career, I realized there is a need for Soldiers to learn about taking control of their finances.
Instead of throwing them a PowerPoint or placing them in a queue to be seen by a financial advisor, I decided to take control and become educated to help them. In 2018, I will complete my Master’s Degree in Family Financial Planning and Counseling and will take the Certified Financial Planner Exam in the Summer of 2018.
How Budget Chaos Began
A Big Dream and the Road to Get There
I created Budget Chaos with the goal to provide resources and assistance to my Soldiers. The online blog was the platform for me to reach previous and current Soldiers and give them the tools they need to be successful.
I soon realized that there is a larger need for financial order than only in my immediate network, and this site is the tool that will be able to help both civilians and military alike.
The goal of this site is simple: provide sound and ethical fundamental processes to solve financial issues–or–Using Military Order in Financial Chaos. I want to resource you with the knowledge to make your own sound financial decisions.
Why I Do What I Do
Hint: It’s Not About the Money
I have no intent on leaving the military for a financial advising career–at least not at this point in my life. I deliberately decided to not receive my licenses so I can offer unbiased help. Helping people with financial issues is the motivation for most things I do outside the military. Therefore, most of the content, tools, and material reviews are absolutely free.
Full disclosure: At times there will be a link or review to a product outside of this website. If you were to go to that website and purchase that product, I would receive a small commission on the sell of that item at no extra cost to you. However, I give you my word that if I ever recommend a product to you, it is because I have tried it or I have researched it, and it is something I honestly think can help you out too.
You’re Not Too Late
