"Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.” — Steve Jobs
Fitness is a large passion of ours, but finance is a top priority and huge passion as well. We both majored in finance in college and continue to be captivated with personal finance. We decided to add this section to our existing website to help individuals live an enjoyable life through health and wealth. We realize we share a strong passion in helping our community get better at budgeting, saving and investing, and general personal finance along with living a healthier lifestyle in regards to moving more and eating healthy.
We're not perfect, but we strive to be as disciplined and responsible as possible by living within our means; it's simple - we focus on the things we need in our pursuit of happiness, not the things we want in the relentless chase for status.
Just a few things about us:
- We have no credit card debt (but we do USE credit cards).
- We have no student loan debt.
- We have no other miscellaneous debt.
The best part, you can too if you just follow some simple strategies!
Living a balanced life requires saying "no" more than saying "yes". This applies to finance and fitness. It is not about deprivation, it's about self-control.
Our Finance Background:
Scott graduated magna cum laude from Georgia State University in 2006, and majored in finance with a concentration on investments. He chose finance because he knew early on that his passion was in working with numbers.
After graduating, he accepted a position as Financial Analyst with a Fortune 500 technology company based in Metro Atlanta and ended up accepting a Senior Financial Analyst position with another Fortune 500 company. After about five years earning his stripes with some of the largest companies in the world, he accepted a position with a sports-based nonprofit organization of which he now serves as Vice President of Finance.
Whitney spent her childhood helping on the family farm and learned the value of hard work early on as she basically worked from the time she could walk. She also learned the ever-important lesson of the value of the dollar from her grandparents that experienced the Great Depression firsthand.
She graduated from University of North Georgia and majored in finance. She majored in finance because she ultimately wanted to help guide people's financial decisions. She's always known that she wanted to own her own business - she was brought up in a family of entrepreneurs...it's in her blood! She left her corporate job in May 2013 to follow her passion for fitness and became a health coach and personal trainer and now operates He and She Eat Clean on a full-time basis.
