J.D. Roth

J.D. Roth founded Get Rich Slowly in 2006, published Your Money: The Missing Manual in 2010, created the year-long “Get Rich Slowly” course in 2014, and for four years contributed the monthly “Your Money” column to Entrepreneur magazine.

He started Get Rich Slowly in 2006 to document his personal journey as he dug out of debt. Then he shared while he learned to save and invest. Twelve years later, he managed to reach early retirement! He shares stories about debt elimination, saving money, and practical investing. He scours the web for the latest personal finance tools and articles. He also posts news on related topics like simplicity, frugality, and personal development. 

In 2009, for reasons both personal and financial, he sold Get Rich Slowly — but stuck around as manager, editor, and primary writer until 2012. Then he “retired”. (Sort of.) In October 2017, he bought Get Rich Slowly back! You can reach JD on Twitter @jdroth.
