My name is Jonathan Vasquez; I am passionate about travel, service, and entrepreneurship. In 2012 I was working in corporate and making “really good money”, but I was not financially stable. As my income grew so did my expenses and I quickly found myself drowning in debt and not enjoying life to the fullest. I loved my career in IT and wanted to continue to grow professionally, but something was missing. I needed a change!
A friend guided me into the right direction and pointed me to resources that could set me on the right track. At the time she was doing very well financially -though her income was less than mine, she had no consumer debt, was almost done paying off her mortgage, and spent most of her time traveling. She had what I wanted and so I listened.
My financial philosophy is a combination or Robert Kiyosaki, Loral Langemeier, and Dave Ramsey. I believe in entrepreneurship, creating multiple streams of income, living frugally, and planning for the future while enjoying the finer things in life. I don’t buy flashy stuff and spend most of my money on travel. I value experiences and memories over material possessions.
Over time I’ve learned that in order to get ahead financially I have to leverage the power of corporations, create a tax and wealth strategy, and create additional sources of income. I spent my first two years as an entrepreneur going from failure to failure, making very little money, and getting frustrated. After two years of trying really hard I was still depending on one source of income and had very little hope left. Then something happened.
Late in 2015 I discovered ForEx Trading. I had previously traded and invested in stocks with little success; I found it boring and never focused on building a profitable strategy. When I started learning ForEx Trading I got fired. Up. I found it extremely exciting and simple enough that I could do it while continuing to work a full time job. In September 2015 I left my corporate life and ForEx Trading became my main source of income.
In this blog you will find personal financial advice, ForEx Trading tips, and ideas on how to generate additional income. I share everything I know and everything I learn as I continue my journey. My motto is LEAD, LIVE, and GIVE. I seek to LEAD by example by becoming the best version of myself, I LIVE life without worries and focus on the present, and GIVE my time, talents, and treasure to the betterment of the community where I belong.
