Me, My Blog and I – Financial Independence

Want to retire early? Want to make more of your money? Invested in property and not getting the return you want? Just getting your first job and need to know what to do with your money?

Me, My Blog and I will be able to help you.

I love the idea of blogs. They cover a huge variety of topics, which you can read at your own pace. They also provide chunks of information, and can be as long as the writer wants. In a world where everything is now covered in 140 characters, I hope this blog will put a  bit more meat on the bones.

I go more into my personal story here.

The idea of this blog came to me 12 months ago. I had worked in property investment and personal finance for a number of years, and I had a few ideas of how to make greater returns from property as well as an interest in peer to peer lending and financial independence.

There are a number of blogs out there, but none that provided the in depth level of case studies I was looking for with real world examples of the methods working. So over the past 12 months I have been collecting examples of ways I have made the most of my money and my clients money and I aim to show you how to make the most of your money.

I am not professing to be an expert. However, contemporary knowledge states that you need 10,000 hours of practice be an expert at something. I still feel I have lots to learn, however, I have had well over 10,000 hours dealing with personal finance, investing and property development and the huge range of subjects I plan to cover.

This whole site is about helping you increase your income online and offline to help you become financially independent.

Why Personal finance and Property Investment?

This is a question, I am often asked and it is something that has always bugged me. Why would someone in their mid twenties, get involved with personal finance and property investment? It started when I left school, I had offers for university places but didn’t take them up. I had no interest in listening to someone teach me about historical events that wouldn’t benefit me in the long run. So instead I went straight into the real world and got a real job. This taught me a lot, and showed that with a bit of hard work I could earn and save a lot.

By the time I was 19 I had a five figure sum in savings and was looking into buying my first house. I bought in a cheap area and 18 months later sold it for a tidy 11% profit at a time when property prices where going down. I thought to myself I could do this, and I found the world of financial independence.

You learn from experiences. I used this experience to help me and hundreds of other people make the most of their money. This led me down the path of peer to peer lending, property development, holiday lets, online businesses, matched betting, affiliate websites, etc….

I know what you are thinking, some twenty something who thinks he has it all figured out. I don’t, I’ve made mistakes, launched businesses, launched other blogs and even dressed up in a dog costume to try sell something.

You learn from life’s experiences and I hope to use all of these to help you make the most of your money and achieve the ultimate aim of becoming financial independent.

Matched Betting

I started Matched Betting a couple of years ago and I made a significant amount of money. I very recently returned to this and continue to earn over £1,000 a month guaranteed profit without taking any risks.

People read the word betting and believe that it is a gamble, a sure fire why to lose money. Matched Betting is guaranteed profit as it takes advantage of bookmakers offers to new and existing customers. We take advantage of these to hedge our bets and make sure we make a profit.

All the work is done for you by Profit Accumulator and you just follow their steps. I am a member of Profit Accumulator and will continue to be for the foreseeable future.

Why listen to me?

I am not some high flying investment banker nor do I work in corporate finance. I am someone who has used common sense, asked the right questions, and tried a lot of different methods to make money. As I’ve said before not all of them have worked, but quite a lot have.

Whether it is just making sure I have the best cash back credit card, or making sure I have the best savings account on the market, every penny counts. Compound interest needs to become your best friend in income and outgoings.

For example, you cancel your £60 a month sky bill. After 20 years reinvestment of this at 5% (Easily achievable with low risk), you would have a sum of £24,793.85. Even cancelling your Netflix subscription would give you £2,892.62.

I have not just managed my own finances, I have managed finances for a whole range of clients. Over the years I have seen it all, the good, the bad and the ugly. I have got them returns of up to 43%, and returns as low at 3%. It’s not straightforward, each of us is different and we need to figure out what we really want.

What are we doing this for? I personally like the sense of achievement and like the idea of having earned the money I have. I don’t want a flash car, champagne every weekend or first class flights, but some people want the ability to have these. Reading my blog can lead you closer to achieve what you want with your money.
