Hello! My name is Kirin Nguyen and I am a financial blogger based in Vancouver, BC. My philosophy on life is knowing that we were not meant to work our lives away at obligations that make us unhappy.
I grew up on the knowledge that a college degree and a 9-5 job was the only way to success. The typical Asian family pushes their children to pursue high-profile careers and constantly compares to relatives on their way to success– and my family was no different. After succumbing to the pressure, I enrolled in 4 long years of college for accounting, found a high-paying job in my field before quitting a mere month in with a useless diploma and $20,000 down the drain.
It was then I decided that the terms of success were not going to be made by my familys’ definition, but my own. It is not always easy to derive passion in a moment of uncertainty, but I want to show you that when you live the life you want, things will fall into place and you will be living at your greatest potential.
Many people end up in bad financial places– not due to their income, but their lack of financial knowledge and management skills. I want to show you that everybody, not just millionaires, can become financially successful by learning how to better manage their money.
Leave your past of money troubles behind and join me on my journey to financial freedom. 🙂
