jimAbout me and how I add value:

Career & Health
At 50 I found myself in need of new job skills and new opportunities in a rapidly changing job market. I also found new health challenges, some which I was not anticipating.

The bottom line is, that things change, and we need to adapt and change with them.  I explore and write about new opportunities, products, and educational resources that I’d love to share with you, and create a dialog for growth.

Finance & Frugality

  • I earned both my undergraduate degree and MBA, with zero debt.
  • I pressed for a 10 year mortgage on my home and it has been paid off for 6 years now, in one of the most expensive cities in the world.
  • I purchased my first rental property when I was 22 years old and sold it for 150% profit.
  • I grew up in a household with 10 people, so budgeting on a large scale, and stretching resources has been ingrained in me from a very young age.

I utilize credit cards to my advantage and leverage points programs without being enticed to spend more.   I can help you do that, and I intend to write more practical information about investing in things that provide the most benefit for you and your family.

Technology & Automation
I leverage my IT career knowledge with a futurist mindset to anticipate how I might enhance my life, without breaking the bank.  Some technology might be better suited to stay on the shelf. I help you determine the difference through product reviews and details of how they fit into the modern home.

I love being collaborative, so if you have an idea, or would like my help with something, please reach out to me.

I thank you for taking the time to share the journey with me.
