New to blogging. New to GOOD personal finance habits. New to investing.
I am in my late 20s, and live in Canada. My fiancee and I plan to get married in 2013. This will be preceeded by buying a condo. We aren’t looking for anything outrageous – just a happy future in which we work to live, not live to work.
I have been fortunate enough to get a good education. I have a good job (which I love). I have been in the workforce for close to 5 years now. Unfortunately, I mistook having an above average salary to mean being financially secure. In 2011, through various events, I learnt that this was not the case. It could have been a lot worse though, and I view 2011 as my personal ‘kick in the ass’ year.
In December, 2011, I started doing a lot of reading on personal finance and investing. These blogs/websites/forums were the catalyst I needed to start my own plan for a secure and hassle-free financial future. I decided to create this blog to document my ‘adventures’ as well as to share (and learn) from others.
Thanks for reading!
