I’m Maurice Jones. I am America’s Millennial Tax Expert™ and founder of Ascension Financial Services. The Savvy Financier is a personal freedom and lifestyle blog for helping the current generation accumulate lasting wealth, shield themselves from financial harm, and discover what really works. I am building a community of savvy financiers.

The Savvy Financier is designed to be a tool to help you live your truth, navigate the uncertainties of life and provide you with comprehensive financial knowledge that’s hard to find.

Acquiring worldly wisdom is a long and arduous journey. I’m here to document my journey toward financial independence and share what I learn along the way.

Decisions should be based on the present and where you want to be.

Not where you’ve been.

When we want more… We search for more outside ourselves. I’m a firm believer of we become the average of who we are surrounded by.

If you are someone wanting more out of your life, follow me, share your journey.

The Savvy Financier

I started this blog to help people gain control of their finances once and for all. This blog is also my documentary of reaching financial freedom and independence. This is an authentic platform to share my life with others and a way to hold myself personally accountable for my goals. 

 Some of the strategies I share aren’t my original ideas. Some techniques require the expertise of professionals. Be sure to seek counsel from a trusted advisor CPA, Attorney, Financial advisor. Question everything. Figure out what works best for your situation and  hopefully some of these ideas prove useful to you.

Unlike other personal finance blogs, I am not already financial free. I have student loans. I have consumer debt and I don't have much in savings, assets nor equities. If you're like me, come along my journey as I document my experiences in business and finance.

My Story

I always had an inkling toward figuring out how and why things worked. When I was a child, I wanted to figure things out independently. Throughout my childhood to adolescence I have held onto my child-like sense of wonder. During my teens, conventional wisdom of going to college to get a decent paying job was losing value. 

I grew up in a time where external data and rote memorization was a signifier of academic and career success. (A time when learning cursive was mandatory and threats of things going on your permanent record was a way to curb ill behavior.) 

I still remember my teachers snickering and belittling me because I couldn’t write in cursive as well as my right-handed peers because of my left-handedness. As a result, I taught myself to write with both hands!  I wanted to defy conventional thinking and pave my own way while showing others they can too.

Ascension Financial Services

In 2017 I decided start my own practice in the financial industry as a result of the recent changes in accounting and taxation regulations. As more people moved toward Internet businesses & distribution technologies, I saw a need for more hand-on information for aspiring and experienced entrepreneurs in the form of advisory and accounting services.

Ascension Financial Services is a cloud-based individual tax, small business tax accounting and IRS tax help service.
