Welcome! My name is Michael and I am on a journey towards financial independence.
In 2018 I started my journey towards financial freedom. I was sick of selling my time for money and realised that through the power of compounding interest, I could work towards financial independence.

You can also sign up to my monthly newsletter for free and receive regular updates from me to your inbox!
