About Tegan Phelps

Hey there! My name is Tegan Phelps, personal finance expert and owner/author of The Blissful Budget.

My personal finance obsession started while I was in college.

At that time, I had about $25,000 in debt between my student loans, credit card debt, and car loan.


I struggled for years with handling my finances and made a ton of mistakes along the way. This lead me to research and study anything and everything there is to know about personal finance.

I have tried almost every side hustle in the book and have built up a small portfolio of different income streams.

My husband and I started a small eBay business which has grown to a full-time income in less than a year.

I also created this blog in 2020 to help teach others how to make some extra money, save their money for retirement, and pay off their debt to reach their financial goals.

Some of my personal finance advice and tips have been featured in reputable sites including (but not limited to):

  • Cheapism
  • Fox 10 Phoenix
  • Databox
  • How to FIRE
  • Referral Rock

All of this has enabled me to quit my 9-5 corporate job to pursue the jobs and work that make me happy. We were able to buy a house in our early 20’s, pay off our debt, and have been building our small businesses ever since.

I love to connect with my readers!
