Welcome to Financial Slacker
After over 20 years in the corporate world, I realized that I was a Financial Slacker. I spent all my time making money for others rather than for myself.
So I decided to make a change.
The good news is that despite being a Financial Slacker, I had saved and invested enough that I didn’t need to worry about retirement.
But I wasn’t ready to retire so I decided to start working for myself applying everything I knew about business, finance, and investing.
I launched Financial Slacker not just to share what I have learned along the way, but also to connect with a community of like-minded people discussing financial independence, investing, entrepreneurship, and much more.
I have an engineering degree, an MBA, and a CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst). I have over 20 years of experience in the corporate world as an analyst, a manager, and an executive, culminating most recently as the leader of a multi-million dollar business.
My philosophy in business and in life tends toward the analytical.
I approach problems by looking at the numbers, building spreadsheets, identifying trends, patterns, and anomalies. And I believe the key to solving a problem is finding the cause and effect and understanding the underlying impact.
The numbers explain the world around me.
I also like to read. Whether it’s a blog, a newspaper, analyst reports, financial statements, or just for fun, I spend a good deal of my time reading.
And I am fascinated with entrepreneurship, starting new businesses, investing, technology, and meeting new people.
Why I Created Financial Slacker
I created Financial Slacker as a platform to explore these interests as well as to share my journey with others.
On the site, we discuss financial independence including money management, ways to generate income, investing strategy, business management, and entrepreneurship.
But we also discuss life, family, politics, and other non-financial interests.
And while I believe making money shouldn’t be the primary focus in your life, it does consume a good deal of our time and effort. So why not make it fun?
Too often I hear about the drudgery of work. If that sounds like you, give this site a read. Maybe there’s a better way.
