About the Blog

I started this blog for the following reasons:

  • To give me a creative outlet. 
  • To connect with the financial independence community and to learn from others. I’ve found that writing about a topic helps solidify my knowledge of it.
  • To help others and to document my progress towards financial independence. I’ll hopefully show that you don’t need a huge salary to achieve it.
