About Me

I’m in my late 30’s happily married to the girl of my dreams. I’ve worked my entire career in the financial industry but I don’t own a Rolex or a $5000 suit. I’m not retired as many other frugal living bloggers out there but I am very comfortable with my finances and fulfilled in experiences. After travelling at least twice a year for years my wife and I took a 12 month sabbatical from work in 2011-2012 to backpack around the world. Since then I’ve become a father of a beautiful baby boy and took 2 unpaid months off in the summer of 2014 to spend time with him and my wife while she was on maternity leave. I am taking another 2 unpaid months off this year for the same reason when my second baby comes. We own a nice home in a desirable neighbourhood yet we have no car payments and have never bought a brand new car.

What helps me bring a slightly different perspective on financially balanced living is my background in finance. I am a CFA charterholder and an author on the popular SeekingAlpha website for investors. I also run a website that helps option investors identify good risk/return opportunities in the equity option markets.

Lastly I’ve never made an exorbitant salary and neither has my wife, and yet we’ve been able to balance life in such a way as to be able to do it all. I hope this blog helps at least a few people balance their lives in a similar way.

    Nice one. It is inspiring one. It clearly shows that money do not buy happiness you just need to focus on your goal. I like your article and looking forward to your future mails.
