Paul Nolan began contributing stories to The Balance in 2020. His specific interests regarding personal finance include saving for retirement, investing, and being a smart consumer so you can enjoy the fruits of your smart financial decisions.

He is a journalism major who started his career as a reporter for daily newspapers in Washington, Colorado, and Massachusetts. His shift to trade publications coincided with a move to the Twin Cities. He has been the editor of Sales & Marketing Management and other B2B publications since 2002, but he has always maintained a foothold in writing for news publications and news websites. He became a student of making smart financial decisions when his first child was born in 1993 (not that he advises others to wait until they become parents to get serious about personal finances).

Nolan lives in Asheville, North Carolina, but likes the fact that on any given day, his office can be anywhere in the world.
