I am a Financial Slacker.
At least I used to be when it came to managing my own personal finances. I spent all my time working and earning money for others.
But just because I was a Financial Slacker, doesn’t mean I was a slacker in other areas of my life.
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.
And even with all my credentials, experience, and skills, I rarely applied that knowledge to my own personal finances.
Despite being a Financial Slacker, I saved, invested, and accumulated enough money to leave the corporate world and start working for myself.
My philosophy in business and in life tends toward the analytical. I approach problems by looking at the numbers. I build spreadsheets. I look for trends, patterns, and anomalies. I find cause and effect. I seek to understand the underlying financial impact. I use numbers to explain the world around me.
I launched Financial Slacker as a platform to discuss financial independence including money management, ways to generate income, investing strategy, business management, and to generally share my life with the readers.
My desire is to help you reach your specific goal whether that is getting promoted, starting a new business, retiring early, or achieving financial independence.
Thank you for joining me at Financial Slacker and I look forward to getting to know you.
