This blog was originally started for the sole purpose of keeping a track of my financial goals and status. I often use this blog to look back on what I was doing at (x) time this year, so I try to keep it populated with financial events in my life. Occasionally I try to help people learn something new.

Here’s a quick story of how I got started in entrepreneurship.

After reading my blog, many people have personally told me:

  • This blog was their inspiration to start their very first business and quit their job (because of this).
  • They started eating better and lost weight (because of this).
  • They think I’m awesome (for actually TRYING things instead of just talking about them like this and this).
  • They think I’m horrible (because of things like this).
  • Think I have too much time on my hands (because of stuff like this).

    Very good! “A thousand miles journey starts with the first step.” You are following good Napoleon Hill´s step to fortune DESIRE (think and get rich). I am 22 years old too, You can say we are In the same path, the path to fortune. I am totally devoted to investing learning, so far I am doing very well, I am satisfied.
    I have a personal theory that I think could take me a long way it´s all about ROIC (return over invested capital) ex. rent businesses, real state, financial engineering, etc… It´s all about numbers my friend…
    I will be in touch, it could be interesting, people from the same generation should help each other.

    Good Luck man!

    Hi Site Admin,

    I am emailing from a leading advertising agency based in London.

    to know if this is something which would be of interest to you?

    The placement of our adverts are contextually matched to the content on
    the page, therefore relevant.

    Do let me know if you are interested to discuss any partnerships with us
    as we feel the positioning of your website will have strong benefits for
    both parties.

    Hi Neville,
    How are you ? I recently found you through Mixergy and i’ve become your fan. I’ve started going through your blog and i’m already finding very valuable information. After suffering classical problem of low conversion i had started researching about copy-writing and now with finding your blog and classes i’m hoping i’ll be able to achieve what i’ve been looking for. Thanks for sharing your journey.

    I recently found your site. Your site interests me b/c of the honesty of your endeavour.

    I feel that in order achieve personal and financial growth, being open and communicating ideas and perspectives is a great way to measure success.

    I am a firm believer in being financially honest. I have taken major risk, when taking on the task of becoming an equities trader. Equities trading can be compared to personal finance. Maintaining honesty is a good policy.
    Brutal honesty is painful, however that is needed when identifying loss. Knowing where to pull out of bad deals and knowing when to keep your money in the bank is very important.
