I’m the Lawyer On A Mission and this is my blog. I talk about personal finance, investing and money saving tips and tricks to help you achieve financial independence. Sometimes I talk about myself in the third person, and that’s because I like to sound important. But enough about me. This blog is about you.
Are you a professional?
I’m a professional lawyer, yes. Am I a professional financial advisor? Absolutely not. And as such, you shouldn’t consider anything I say to be financial advice. I make my living by reading dusty statute books and geeking out over the latest supreme court judgment. I’m no Warren Buffet.
I can however offer you something else, and it may ultimately prove to be far more valuable. I will explain the difficult concepts to you in a way that you will understand and remember. I will cut through the jargon you hear in the news, to give you the real story. I will tell you what the payday loan and credit card companies don’t want you to know, so that you can beat them at their own game. In short, I’ll help you ascend from the quagmire of ignorance to the lofty peaks of financial nirvana. It will be an adventure, and you’ve got a first class ticket. So what are you waiting for?
Okay, I’m in. But what’s in it for you?
To tell you the god’s honest truth, this whole experiment is a journey of learning and discovery for me too. I’m on my own path to financial independence and I want to share it with you, warts and all.
My goal is to create a community which puts people on the trajectory towards financial independence. I want to drown out the everyday nonsense surrounding personal finance and cast a light on what people should be focusing on. That’s the Mission (with a capital ‘M’). If we succeed, it’s a win-win for everyone. And if we don’t, we can at least have a laugh along the way.
So take off your shoes, hang up your coat and take a seat by the fire. Let the Lawyer On A Mission take you gently by the hand and guide you through the gauntlet of fiscal despair. He knows his way around. By landing on my blog, you’ve already taken your first step towards financial freedom. Now doesn’t that feel good?
