The Economics of Time & Money

Why do we feel like we never have enough time to do the things we want to do? Mostly it’s because we spend too much time trading time for money.
If you had the ability to live off your own resources would you still do the same things? The big question is, are most people playing the wrong money game?


After living in 3 countries and experiencing different financial systems, I found myself questioning things that a lot of people took for granted. My uncle, who was an international currency trader in London, reinforced this by sharing stories of how a few individuals where able to change the forces of governments-take them on and win. In the process I became an unintentional economist. Thus, I have an alternative view of financial forces and headwinds that affect people’s lives such as the power of debt for good and bad, the true risks associated with different types of investing, and how different people hack the system. To do well today most people need to overcome the financial headwinds they are burdened with. By applying this knowledge it has allowed me to gain time back in my life to spend it on things that create meaning not just the daily grind of trading time for money. I have a great desire to share what I have learned along the way, mentoring others and helping them find their path and devising creative ways to capitalize on various market and economic events. Nowadays, having fun, presenting at conferences on economics and other financial topics, and building a coalition of the willing to take on the world, is my passion; I hope you can join me on this journey.

    I totally agree Paul. I have chosen to take the entrepreneurial route. I believe it is worth the “risk” to pursue true freedom. I might add that living small has also given me the freedom to choose how I spend my time. In the end, we strive to find purpose and balance.
