I’m going to create this first post so that in a few years time when this site is the number 1 visited site on the internet (fingers crossed) curious readers can come here and see why it started.

The focus of the site is financial education. Learning how to save and make money but also learning about finances in general. There are a lot of people who want to be rich, however it seems there are fewer people who want to study money itself.

I graduated from university with a lot of debt and instead of feeling sorry for myself I decided to increase what I knew about finances. Slowly over the years I’ve achieved goals that a lot of people aim for. Paying off debts, building up an emergency fund and am now building up investments.

I am in no way an expert on the topic and this site is going to be a place to share what I’ve learnt and also¬†encourage me to keep studying and finding out new things. including how to get the money in the first place and then keep it to improve your quality of life.
