Hey! I'm Tim Jordan

I'm an expert budgeter, author, and Certified Financial Coach.

My mission is to not only teach you money principles, but to teach you how to mold them to fit who you are and build the life you want.

I don't like typical money advice.

I don’t believe you have to fit into some mold to manage your money.

I don’t believe that you have to stop spending money to get a handle on your finances.

I don’t believe that cutting back on your spending is the only way to get ahead financially.

I don’t believe that all debt is bad. In fact, I don’t even use the terms “bad” or “good” debt.

I believe...

that the way I specifically manage my money may not work the same for you, that you can spend money on lattes and avocado toast and still be financially free, and that your money should be used to build the life you want.

I believe that you can attain financial freedom at any income level. You don’t have to wait until you’re a millionaire or retired or working a job making six figures. Financial freedom can be yours now

That’s why it’s my mission to not simply teach you money management principles, but to teach you how to mold them to fit who you are. In short, I want to teach you how to build your money management system to be natural and get you the results you want.

Why this Works

When was the last time you felt like you were doing something you had to do rather than what you wanted to do? For some of us, that’s getting up to go to a job we hate. For others, it’s cutting back on spending on the things we want. Then, some of us feel like every time we spend we’re doing something wrong.

The last time I checked, Van Gogh didn’t color in the lines to create The Starry Night. Michelangelo didn’t paint the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel by following another guy who outlined everything for him beforehand.

So why should you try and manage your money the exact same way someone else does?

Why try and do things the typical way?

If we were to believe most other financial experts, we’d stop spending on our lattes, give every dollar a job, and live like paupers until we’re “allowed” to spend in our retirement. According to most financial gurus, you have to cut everything out to be successful. 

I don’t buy it! I want you to enjoy your life now and in retirement, whenever that may be. And I want to do the same!

You might thrive on making sure every dollar has a job, but I don’t. Your best friend might be really successful using only cash all the time, but you might have to manage your money a different way. And that’s OK! We are all unique. What works for me might not work for you. 

My method of managing money teaches you how to do things your way. And that makes it natural and easy.

About Tim

Hey there! Nice to meet you. My name is Tim. I’m a husband, father of two beautiful girls, and big finance nerd. I’m also a really goofy guy who mixes goofiness with professionalism to create a unique way of helping people (just like you!) manage their finance. 

My passion in life is to help people find their version of financial freedom, no matter what that looks like. I don’t believe in doing things the same way for everyone. You are unique and your finances should reflect that.

about Atypical Finance

Atypical Finance exists to help you find—and attain—your own version of financial freedom. My version of financial freedom may not look like yours, and that’s how it should be. 

Atypical Finance also doesn’t give the typical money advice. I don’t like to beat around the bush and teach you things that aren’t going to work. I’m not one of those people that say things like “budgeting sucks” and then show you how to budget by calling it something different.

Atypical Finance is about honest financial education.

Atypical Finance has two core philosophies.

The first philosophy is that you are unique and not like anyone else (aka atypical). How you manage your money will—and should—reflect that.

The second philosophy is that your money management system (also called your budget) is at the root of your personal finance tree. By budgeting correctly, you can determine all other areas of personal finance and find freedom rather than the feelings of restriction typically (remember, we don’t like typical) associated with budgeting.
