I’m Edward, founder of MasterMyFinance.com. I am an avid reader of personal finance books, blogs and articles. I’ve also taken an interest in building affiliate marketing websites, which turned out to be an extremely rewarding experience.
My day job has nothing to do with internet and affiliate marketing, it’s just a weekend side hustle that I do from the comfort of my own home.
It didn’t come easy, though. For 2 years, I was trying out different ways to make money online and bought into various programs that promised quick profits. Needless to say, they didn’t work. That costed me $15,000 in total, and it was a painful experience.
Some people may relate to my misery, but I’m glad I had those bad experience under my belt. They keep me focused on what’s working, and stop me from chasing after the rainbows. Yes, I had the shiny object syndrome where I would even try out programs that looked shady.
That’s why I started this website to teach people the proper way to start an online business and make money from home.
With the rise of e-commerce and internet marketing, starting a business while holding a day job is no longer an impossible task. So in this website, I also write about starting your online business while keeping your job, because that’s exactly what I’m doing now.
I like to think of myself as a full time employee, and part time entrepreneur. Watching your very own business grow is the most rewarding thing ever!
Oh, and I have something more to say –
Over the years I’ve read numerous books about personal finance, and I’ve analyzed the strategies to apply to my own finances. This includes generating side incomes, keeping track of spending, saving money, as well as short and long term investments.
As much as they are useful, I found that there is a lack of comprehensive, step-by-step guide to build up financial literacy that is so essential to everyone, but remains a topic not taught much in schools. So I’ve compiled the Financial Freedom Series as a guide to manage your finances, no matter where you stand financially.
The need for a comprehensive personal finance guide
You will learn how to assess your financial health, tackle debts effectively, build up your emergency fund, and accumulate wealth using side income. You’ll also learn how to start your online business from scratch, if you wish to start a side income that will eventually grow into a full time income.
Lastly, you will learn how to convert your active income into passive income that can serve you during your retirement, and for the rest of your life.
If you are serious about improving your personal finance health, read on and you shall be on your way to gaining financial literacy that is useful for life.
