The Money Ninja helps people of all ages maximize their finances.

The Money Ninja logo

John Pham is the founder of The Money Ninja, the modern voice when it comes to personal finances: how to make more money, save it better, and spend it wisely.

What started as a side project during his graduate studies to help family and friends maximize their finances has scaled to a brand with over 200,000 monthly visitors, employing a team of four content strategists, writers, and editors.

He draws insight from his unique past; someone who started working at a local grocery store at age 16, and by the time he turned 30, had already made his first million dollars.

As a sophomore in college he founded Azurik, an ecommerce technology start-up that was subsequently sold to Microsoft. John is also an angel investor in various Silicon Valley endeavors and a shadow owner of three other highly successful finance, travel, and lifestyle blogs. Additionally, he has over 15 years of corporate experience working for a number of Fortune 100 companies.

John holds an MBA from Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics at the University of New Hampshire where he also received his BS in Business Administration.
