I got out of $60,000 of debt in 18 months with The Budgeting Tool which I now sell online and donate its net proceeds to charity and I currently have a net worth of over $500,000 less than 10 years later.
With The Investing Tool, I have built up my considerable net worth of over half a million to pay for my $600,000 apartment in cash to be completely debt and mortgage free in my early 30s.
I make on average $20,000 a month when I work, and the rest of the time I chill out and travel, although traveling has been on hold lately with the recent arrival of Baby Bun, my rambunctious, ever-hungry toddler. (This is sometimes at odds with how much I love to shop, but I am working on that because nobody’s perfect.)
I have started a series of books called “Like a Boss” covering a range of topics, and my first one is Start a Blog Like a Boss – How to Make Money, outlining how I now make an additional $1000 USD a month just off my blog, having started it in less than 3 years.
My second, is Investing Like a Boss – Very Little Work for a Big Reward, which tells you in less than 25 pages what, where and how to invest your money… plus lots of answers to questions and detailed screenshots on how to do it.
This is the investing strategy I have followed which has let me grow my net worth to over $500,000 (even supporting me during years when I don’t work at all by multiplying itself), and it’s how I’ve invested my son’s money as well.
He is a toddler with $16,000 as his net worth which is more than I ever had until I was in my 20s!
On Save. Spend. Splurge., I discuss how I build wealth and I would rather give you tips on figuring out your own personal path to riches than to try and force you to follow what I did.
Lastly, not all wealth comes in the form of money and although money helps, it isn’t everything or the only thing you need to feel wealthy.
Style and fashion has a bad rap for being in the domain of the vain & frivolous, but actually affects our lives and our money in a lot more ways than we think.

I still stand by this statement because it is very true for many:
“You can make more money and live a richer life by spending some time and a little effort on your appearance.“
You could earn a higher salary and be more respected just by the way you dress and how you appear to others.
As a practical (not militant) minimalist who only spends on and keeps what I love, it really sums up what this blog is really all about at its core – helping you figure out your priorities in all aspects of your life. Minimalism is a mindset.
TOP 10 MONEY RULES I LIVE BY:
- No one should be more interested in your money than you
- You shouldn’t be dependent on anyone financially; be interdependent
- Only you can make your own choices (and mistakes) with your money
- Becoming wealthy is earning like a princess/prince but living like a pauper
- A net dollar saved is two (gross) dollars earned
- Compounding interest & time are your money’s two BFFs.
- Retirement is not a right — it’s a privilege you save your money for
- Your intellect is the best money maker and asset you’ll ever have
- Hard work matters: I’d rather be stupid and hardworking, than smart but lazy
- Money isn’t everything, but it sure is a necessary part of everything you do in life
5 FACTS ABOUT ME:
