Hello, my name is Javier Gutierrez. My wife Taylor and I have paid off $34,259.37 in student loans and a car loan.

I am a history teacher by day and blogger when I get a chance. If you are willing to pay the price to become debt free and begin building wealth this
is the blog for you! Here I will share the strategies I used to tackle our debt along with the changes needed to reach our financial goals.


This is our dog Aspen. She is also a Dinero Pro and knows how to spend it in yummy treats and squishy toys.






I grew up in a very poor part of Mexico and with very limited means.

Living in America for the past 15 years has thought me the value of hard work and perseverance.

After achieving my dream of a college education (first generation graduate), I walked away with $15K in student debt. The next best thing was paying it off! Becoming debt free has helped me shape my future and my legacy.


This blog is meant to give you the tools we have used to become financially aware. Through our struggles and accomplishments, we hope that you too can achieve peace, knowledge and control of your money. 

Despite having a great desire to make our money behave, we realize that a community of supporters goes a long way. We want to be part of that community, one that will encourage you and celebrate with you.

To share your story with us or to follow our journey, please don’t hesitate in subscribing to my blog! If you have any questions shoot me an e-mail at thedineropro@gmail.com.

I hate talking about myself but I would love to hear what you have to say. I’ll be more than happy to answer any of your questions or simply hear how you are winning with money!
