About

Welcome to my personal website

A little history about me

I graduated from university way back in 1995, and then entered the corporate world of information technology. My degree was actually nothing to do with tech (Human Geography), but I always seemed to be suited to the industry.

I had various roles in and around London until 2005. I was then made redundant and decided to strike out on my own, and be my own boss!

My passion for money!

If you are reading this, I am guessing you love money too! Don’t we all, eh?

Well let me just say one important thing about me. I love money because it gives me freedom. Freedom to get up in the morning when I want, freedom to decide what I do every day and freedom of choice.

Money for me is nothing to do with status or fancy clothes (see above picture!). Money is not about fast cars or keeping up with the latest consumer trends.

Money is simply an enabler of freedom.

Managing your money is not getting any easier

Let’s talk about choice again. In this day and age, the choices for managing and investing money are enormous. It’s actually so baffling that most people employ financial advisors or investment managers.

I hope to present money management choices in a clear, and easy to understand way. There is no reason why you cannot manage your own portfolio, and save yourself a lot of money from broker and advisor fees.

Making money online

The focus of my site is on personal finance and investing, but I will post some content about making money too. I currently make my income from working online.

In 2001 I actually setup my first ever website, which was a city guide for visiting football fans. My home town team (Ipswich Town) was the main focus.

At this time I started making a decent wage from affiliate marketing. In October of 2005 I left the UK to see the world and exist as a digital nomad. I started a blog called Working Nomad, which also included a forum. Here is my first ever post from September 2005!

Being able to work online gave me the chance to be location independent. This means I can choose to live pretty much anywhere!

I was featured on the CNN website in 2007 as a new breed of white collar nomads. People that could work remotely and from anywhere.
