Hi! I am Alex
Welcome to Sweat Your Assets. On this financial blog, I share strategies and tools to Master Your Finances.
We all know money is essential, but we don’t necessarily want to spend our lives thinking about it. However, as life evolves, needs and responsibilities arise. Costs for education, pensions, housing and healthcare continue to grow. In many countries, public welfare programs won’t be able to cover all your upcoming needs. Life might also throw you a couple of curveballs.
There is always a moment in someone’s life when you feel the need to take full control of your financial future. It is way better to do it sooner, out of inspiration, than later, out of desperation.
Good news, though: we live in the information age. It has never been easier to access knowledge. You should be able to obtain the necessary know-how to manage our Assets, protect your family from financial hardship, invest in your dearest projects, build your wealth and contribute to the well-being of your community. Right?
Indeed, universities and business institutes have advanced courses on financial and investment subjects. Book shops and libraries have sections dedicated to them. Similar topics are widely discussed in the media. However, most popular contents are based on industry marketing or unreliable financial gurus secrets rather than solid and tested principles and services. It is common to feel confused by such noise. With this financial blog, I choose a different path.
There is one eternal truth in money management: “We have met the enemy, and he is us”. The first step is to invest in yourself: “first, you learn, then you earn”. My strategy is to promote practical financial education based on timeless principles, accredited best practices and tested tools and services. You will be able to make sound financial decisions in line with your personal circumstances and needs.
Call it Financial Education, Financial Inclusion or Personal Finance: the goal is to contribute to your sustainable financial well-being. You will have a toolkit to become resilient, unshakable and thrive, creating the conditions for a ripple effect around you. Yes, I believe in a broader positive social impact driven by individual growth.
No matter your current stage in life, geographic location or work environment, I trust this blog will inspire you to improve your mindset, master your finances and thrive in any situation.
How? By Investing in Yourself First. Sweat Your Assets and enjoy the Compounding Effect.
