What is Dimespring?

Dimespring is an interactive community for people seeking actionable financial advice. Fueled by discussions and content that inspire action, engaging visuals such as infographics, and tools that activate positive financial change, Dimespring educates, entertains and helps you make better-informed personal finance decisions.

Story Behind the Name

Later in life, John D. Rockefeller began distributing dimes to children and young adults he encountered along with a lesson — to create a fortune, work hard and save money. The dimes allowed him to establish a basis of conversation and rapport.

In the same vein, Dimespring facilitates conversation of personal finance. We seek to offer a foundation for friendly, but spirited discussions leading to personal financial growth, springing forth from a beginning as humble as a dime.
