About

“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 and I’m a San Francisco Bay Area native who bought my first home at the age of 21. Since then, I’ve seen the dot-com crash, the great recession of 2008, and have over 20 years of perspective for various issues relating to the world of online business & personal finance.

Currently, I work from home and run my online business called Real Authority Media. I’m also the CTO for Reputation Defense Network.

I really enjoy writing so this blog allows me to do that, and share my business knowledge with you!

I’ve also contributed some knowledge to various media publishers as well, check out my Media page to see all the article’s I’ve been quoted in.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Cheers!

Scott Bates
