Hello everyone and welcome to my blog! I have been wanting to start a new blog (I blogged about 10 years ago when I was still in high school and when Blogspot first came out) and I’m excited that I finally bit the bullet on a domain name and hosting to start this personal blog.
I am a 27 year old from Sydney, Australia. I graduated from a 6 year university degree (triple major, double degree) in Commerce (Accounting and Finance) and Engineering (Civil). I did a half year exchange program in George Washington University in D.C (when Trump got elected) and participated in the largest protest (Women’s March) that I have ever experienced.
In my day job, I work as a senior analyst in the real estate acquisitions team of one of the top 20 asset managers in the world (by AUM). Prior to that I was in the Real Advisory team in a big 4 accounting firm.
In my spare time, I’m also mostly thinking or doing things related to real estate (as my parents are also real estate investors). I have 1 investment property and 1 home that I co-own with my partner and along with my student debt of around $50k, it means I am highly leveraged.
What made me start this blog is four fold:
- I have never been too good with my budget and savings and hopefully by starting this blog I can make myself accountable to start paying down a lot of the debt I have at the moment
- I want to record my journey in property investing and share the knowledge and learnings I’ve gained throughout this process
- I want a forum to record my thoughts and my life to serve as a form of scrap book of memories I can look back on
- I want the blog to be my side hustle and derive some form of income from this by learning about adsense, affiliate marketing and more so I can diversify my income stream and pay down my debts even faster
Now your turn: do you have a blog and what made you start blogging? Interested to also hear from other property investment blogs out there as well 🙂
