About David Wright

David Wright is the founder of Simply Budgets.

David grew up on a small farm in central Queensland in Australia and after completing high school he spent 5 yrs training and  working in a Metal Trade before deciding to change careers. He trained and entered into Secondary School Teaching and for 20 yrs taught Industrial Design and Technology at various State Schools in South East Queensland.

After reaching the top of the pay-scale ladder as a school teacher, David realized that nothing was going to improve financially unless he found a new and more effective way to manage his finances.
Driven by a desire to do better, David spent thousands of hours developing and fine-tuning a system to sort out his financial affairs. The system he developed worked so well, he felt he just couldn’t keep it to himself.

Built on real-life experiences, Simply Budgets is designed to produce results. It is built on sound financial principles that David accidentally rediscovered, but approached from a different angle. It is this unique focus that makes Simply Budgets simple but very powerful.

David now markets the Simply Budgets system that allowed him to take control of his own family’s finances and has helped thousands of other people to take control of their finances as well.

His story, advice, observations and system have been featured in magazines and newspapers such as The Courier Mail, The Daily Telegraph, The Financial Review, PC Authority,  The Sunday Mail, Money Magazine, Independent Financial Advisor and various other publications.

His Simply Budgets Money Hints and Tips (available for free from this web-site) are continually helping people better understand how to take charge of their personal finances and he regularly receives messages of thanks from his readers who now number in excess of 35,000.

David has addressed audiences at seminars and expo’s and has lectured on Taking Financial Control at “Cashflow Clinics” in various locations around Australia, New Zealand, USA and the UK. He travels widely teaching the Simply Budgets system with a goal to set up a network of finance industry professionals to further utilise his system helping people to take control of their finances.

David has appeared on Australian Television on Channel Nine’s “A Current Affair” and “Brisbane Extra” and Channel Seven’s “Today Tonight”. He has been interviewed on radio in Australia on stations such as 4BC, 4EB, 3AK, 5DN, 6PR and the ABC. More recently he has given radio and television interviews in the USA on shows such as Business of Success, Wall Street in the Morning and Money TV

The Simply Budgets software program has sold over 28,000 copies including orders from countries such as UK, USA, Canada, New Zealand, Chile, Denmark, Singapore, South Africa and New Guinea to mention a few.

David is happily married, has three children, 5 grandchildren, and enjoys restoring and riding classic motorcycles, time with family and playing piano and guitar.

    Sub : Guest Post Proposal for http://simplybudgets.com.au/

    Hello,

    My name is Marc Brown. I am a financial writer as well as a skilled coupon clipper, a Dad, and the frugal gatekeeper of my household. I am trying to build up my portfolio and would love to post as a guest on your site. Frugality, debt, budgeting, personal finance, and managing the household have always come naturally to me and it’s something I really enjoy writing about. I would be glad to come up with something unique and interesting to contribute to your blog or write about any ideas you may have for a guest post.

    Should you publish my post, I’ll be happy with a simple attribution with my name and the site I co-author. Let me know what you think and what topics you are looking for that you haven’t already covered or I can just come up with something unique that hasn’t been done yet.

    I look forward to hear from you.

    Thanks so much!

    Marc Brown

      Marc,

      I’m happy to look at what you do.

      Maybe a piece on saving/being frugal might be of interest to my readers.
      Send something you have written in to me and I will consider it for publishing.

      Maybe I could write a piece for your blog as well.

      Regards
      David Wright
