JL Collins originally began writing “The Simple Path to Wealth” as a simplified financial guide for his daughter, Jessica. She was in college and interested in anything but investing. His advice to her not only evolved into that book, but he also keeps a blog and runs workshops and seminars.
He has worked in a large variety of professions over the years and in four different countries. Because the way that he managed his money allowed him to travel, he has visited over 40 countries. As a father, it became important for him to share those financial planning strategies.
As an English degree holder, Collins is big on reading in general. He shares a number of his favorite fiction and nonfiction books to read on his website. Now retired from having a day job, he spends his time reading and traveling with his wife, Jane, to whom he has been married since 1982.
