About

Welcome to my blog!

I’m the author of the best-selling personal finance book,  Millionaire Teacher—The Nine Rules of Wealth You Should Have Learned in School.  Published by John Wiley & Sons, you can order it today from Amazon as a paperback or the electronic Kindle version. What is Kindle?

I teach Personal Finance at Singapore American School and I also write a few regular columns.  Currently, I’m writing monthly for Canadian Business magazine, weekly for The Globe and Mail, and at least twice a month for Assetbuilder, a U.S. based financial service company.  Periodically, I also write for MoneySense magazine, where two of my articles were nominated as national publishing award finalists.

 

 About me

If you didn’t grow up in a wealthy household, you and I probably have plenty in common. My dad was a mechanic, and my mom worked part-time at a retail store, earning slightly more than the minimum wage.   As one of four children, my parents expected me to pay for my own college education. Perhaps I developed an early respect for money because I never had any, while growing up.  And when I was 19, I met a mechanic who happened to be a millionaire.   I learned that it wasn’t always necessary to have a high paying job, in order to build wealth.  I wanted to become a school teacher.  And I figured that if a mechanic could grow wealthy on a middle class salary, then I could too.

So before my 20th birthday, I started to invest. Along the way, I learned some vital financial lessons.

And as I started to succeed, financially, I grew more baffled at the absence of sound financial lessons in schools. This blog provides links to my published writing.  Other than my book, they’re all free to access here.   I hope you enjoy them.
