Regular People Can do It!
During my 10 years in Korea, I’ve transformed myself from an average university graduate with student loan debt to someone who is financially free and could not work for a lot of years, if I chose to do that.
Part of it was timing because I invested right after the stock market crash of 2009, but a lot of it was making good financial and investment decisions as well as living frugally. For some advice and to see the principles that I followed, check out my book on Amazon. It’s something you really can’t afford not to have and it’s the first and only book about personal finance specifically for English teachers.
