Using insider knowledge to help those in financial difficulty

MoneyNerd is a personal finance blog that teaches people how to manage their finances and tackle debt. 

My name is Scott Nelson and I’m passionate about helping people out of debt. It’s a subject that’s long been close to my heart, yet my background may suprise you…

For years, I worked in the financial services industry, mostly in short-term, high-cost lending such as credit cards and loans. Despite my love for all things finance, I felt I could do more ‘good’ in the world.

In my work, I’ve seen all kinds of people struggle with money. Having been in debt myself, I knew what it felt like to be in that vulnerable position, and knew I had to help others.

 “I want to use my insider knowledge of the financial services industry to help people regain control of their money.”
