So glad you stopped by!
I’m Sumeet Kumar, and DollarsRise came into being in 2022 as a hub for people looking to amplify their financial game. Whether you’re a college student looking for extra cash or a single parent trying to balance the budget, you’re in the right place.
The heart of this blog is to help you find money-making avenues that are a good fit for you, without adding stress to your life. We focus on the everyday person who’s looking to navigate their finances and maybe even break free from living paycheck to paycheck.
A Little More About Me
Surprisingly, I’m a scientist by training. Yep, I hold a Ph.D. in human genetics. But along the way, I discovered a passion for personal finance. I guess you could call me a finance geek with a love for genetic research.
Although I might seem extroverted online, in real life, I’m more of an “introverted extrovert.” I love conversations about investing, personal finance, and of course, genetics—but often, you’ll find me quietly jotting down notes or reading up on these topics.
My Personal Journey with Finance
Growing up, financial literacy wasn’t a household subject. I saw the struggles of living from one paycheck to another, and it was a wake-up call. It shaped my financial mindset and motivated me to not just earn but also invest wisely.
I’ve spent years managing my finances, investing in various avenues, and even achieving financial independence. I’m not saying I’m a billionaire, but I have learned how to build a healthier, more comfortable life for myself and my family. Part of that journey led me to become a Certified Financial Education Instructor℠ (CFEI®).
The Intersection of Blogging and Personal Finance
I’ve been sharing my financial musings on my other blog, moneyfromsidehustle.com, for four years now. That platform took off in a way that I hadn’t imagined, and I’ve been featured in places like Yahoo! Finance, MSN Money, GOBankingRates, Bankrate, AOL, and more.
Inspired by my growth and the amazing feedback, I decided to expand with DollarsRise. This isn’t just a spin-off; it’s a deep dive into focused strategies for wealth building and money management.
