Message from our founder, Spencer Li, on his goal to make financial knowledge universally available worldwide:
I started trading more than 10 years ago to fund my travels around the world, and it soon became a part of my lifestyle, and also helped me achieve financial abundance a lot faster than I expected. Hence, when I started my blog in 2008, my goal was simple: to record my trades/investment ideas and my learning process, so as to help other traders and investors navigate the financial markets. My personal journey to financial freedom was not an easy one, having gone through hundreds of books, countless courses, and many busted accounts.
I believe that sharing my learning process and failures would help make your journey an easier one, which is why I strove to create the most comprehensive database of trading & investing knowledge, and it is a project I have been working on for almost 10 years.
Since most people do not have the luxury of time to monitor the markets daily and consume a ton of information (news, financials, ratios, prices, etc), my aim was to create strategies that anyone could use with minimal time and effort. To achieve this, I had to distill the essence of all these knowledge and theories into simple and practical steps that anyone could apply with as little as 15 minutes a day. This was especially important to me, since I did not want to spend too much time monitoring the markets when I was travelling and trading.
Such strategies also resonate with my life philosophy of freedom and minimalism, since I can grow and manage my wealth without having to commit a large chunk of my daily time, while keeping my approach simple and easy to execute.
Having travelled to 50+ countries while accruing millions of followers from all over the world, and having the opportunity to speak to thousands of people at live events, I am glad that my life work is having a positive impact on people around the world.
I hope that through our large database of educational blog posts, online courses, and workshops, you will be able to learn all you need to know about trading & investing, various strategies and products, and find the optimal portfolio that will bring balance to your wealth, happiness, and time commitments.
