Today I'm celebrating the last birthday of my twenties. I can't say that I'm feeling any wiser (older? I'd rather not talk about it). But if you ask my friends and family, they'd probably say I'm pretty far ahead of the curve when it comes to my finances.
Sure, I've been writing about personal finance for the better part of my adult life, but that's not to say all this money wisdom didn't come without some serious trial and error.
