About Site Creator
I’m an early 40’s guy who’s an investor, has some entrepreneurial experience, real estate investment experience, loves world travel, food, and computers. After finishing up at my latest contract office job, I moved to Taiwan to pursue a life with more freedom. This wouldn’t have been possible without the many tools available to us all today.
A favorite of mine is Personal Capital which is a free net worth tracker. Sign up because it’s a great tool, not just because you’ll get a free $20 Amazon gift certificate. (Full disclosure: That’s an affiliate link where we’ll both get a $20 Amazon gift certificate if you sign up and link an investment account. Nice eh?)
