Tired of the 9-5, or more like 8-6 grind these days? Throw in 2 hrs of commute and you don’t really have any time to enjoy your life or the money you are making. Mr. Four Hour Work Day, or Mr. FHWD, as he refers to himself, writes his blog from this perspective. What did he do? How is he making a change in his life? What can we all learn from him as a money or even time master?
Below are Mr. 4HWD’s responses to our questions with a little about his take on personal finance. Enjoy!
What’s your story?
I started blogging about a year ago because I got tired of seeing people complain about their day job. I’ve worked in the corporate environment for 5 years now and I’ve discovered that people love to complain but very few ever do anything about it. I did something about it by starting a blog, and then another one and then a niche site. In addition to starting these online businesses, I also try to diversify my income through more traditional means like stocks, bonds and especially real estate.
What’s your point of view, as a personal finance blogger?
As a PF blogger, I try to write about creating multiple sources of income and balancing entrepreneurship with a day job. I am all about working my ass of right now and making sacrifices today so that I can work for myself later on in life. I think way too many people get comfortable working a day job and they will spend their whole life working for someone else. I think that’s fine to start a career but I would much rather be the boss than be bossed around my whole life.
In one sentence, what’s one piece of sage advice from your personal finance background that you’d like to share with our readers?
Nobody cares more about your money than you do.
