About Cleveland Dietz
Cleveland Dietz is a freelance writer specializing in personal finance.
He learned the power of good money management while digging himself out of credit card and student loan debt. Since then, he has experimented with side hustles and investing strategies.
Dietz's philosophy is that dollars only make sense if they take you where you want to go, whether your destination is debt-free living or thru-hiking the American Discovery Trail. That's why he writes about money — to help people spend or save with intention.
Much of his professional life has been spent working with nonprofit budgets. That experience has given him additional perspective on managing money under constraints. Outside of his full-time work, he has started side hustles, including everything from odd jobs to renting out a house.
He holds a bachelor's degree in journalism from Indiana University Purdue University - Indianapolis.
