About Scott

“If you want to learn about personal finance and operating an online business from home you’re going to love this site.”

My name is Scott Bates and I’m a San Francisco Bay Area native who is fascinated with business and finance.

Writing finance articles on Money and Bills is a passion project for me. Most of my time is spent running my business Real Authority Media where my team and I help Entrepreneurs, Business Owners, and Content Creators get featured in the media.

My passion for writing about finance began when I bought my first home at the age of 21. Since then, I’ve seen the dot-com crash, the great recession of 2008, and the stock market crash of 2020.

I have over 20 years of perspective and experience relating to the world of online business & personal finance.

I’ve contributed to various financial media publications as well, check out my Media page to see all the articles I’ve been quoted in.

I enjoy sharing my business and financial insight with anyone who can benefit from it.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
