You’re smart, curious, independent and successful. You work hard to build a great life for yourself and your family and are sensible with your money. But, your desire for financial independence still seems a long way off.
The problem is you don’t know enough about economics and investing, you worry about losing your hard-earned income and you’re too busy to devote time to it all.
But, how do you take control of your finances when the financial world is full of jargon and gobbledegook?
I had the same question too. I’d just come back from a military tour overseas and had saved a large chunk of my salary (I couldn’t spend it!). I knew ultra-low interest rates meant it’d earn next to nothing in a bank account but what to do with it? I was due to leave my job, buy a house and start a new phase of my life. I wanted a family at some point too and didn’t know if I’d decide to have a new career and work while my children were young or whether I’d stay at home. Either way, I knew I needed to make my money work for me.
Luckily, I’m a geek and I love numbers and research so I tackled the problem head-on. I read every book I could get my hands on about investing, the economy and accounting. I even put myself through an MBA and onto the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) program to keep my grey brain cells working and to really get to grips with strategic financial thinking. I’m also passionate about putting into action what I learn, so I began investing for real back in 2012.
But most people don’t have the time to do that. And that’s why I launched this blog – to share what I’ve learned with other curious people to help you make the most of your money. Fitzonomics – economics and investing my way. You can’t make sound financial decisions without an understanding of the ‘why’ behind the answer, and that is what I hope to provide in this blog.
