Welcome! I’m Andrew Hallam
Many people aren't comfortable talking about money. It's not usually a conversational dinner-time topic, and its principles are rarely taught in schools. My goal is to have a "conversation" about it here, on this blog. If you read something you find intriguing, please comment or ask your questions! I am also the author of the books: Millionaire Teacher: The Nine Rules of Wealth You Should Have Learned at School & The Global Expatriate's Guide to Investing.
