I have been a financial blogger, writer, and just a general nerd for many years. In that time I have covered topics ranging from international macroeconomics to the domestic (U.S.) financial markets, to basic personal finance.
I am the writer behind several investing newsletters, paid and unpaid, which combined have more than 250,000 subscribers. As a general rule, most are centered around international investments, with an emphasis on capital flows resulting from global monetary policy. Needless to say, in the past two years I’ve been incredibly busy!
I first became interested in finance, investing and business at the age of…three, four? I remember very clearly having an old polyester wallet and nothing to put in it except tons of $1 bills. Literally, I had saved every last dollar I had ever earned for years.
Since that time, the following timelime firmly established my interest in finance:
- Six years old: My first bank account.
- Seven years old: Determined to earn $1 in monthly interest on my savings account.
- Eleven years old: Became obsessed with Bloomberg. Also, I started my first business later that year in internet marketing with cash I had saved from refereeing. To bad it was at the height of the dotcom boom.
- Eleven and a half years old: Watched dotcoms soar, realized my library had a whole section on Warren Buffett. Subscribed to Money Magazine, and later countless other publications.
- Twelve years old: Opened my first brokerage account as part of an E-Trade gimmick that included a book from none other than The (Motley) Fool.
- Twenty one years old: MoneyMamba.Com launches. Let’s get this show on the road!
You’ll notice while reading MoneyMamba that I love data, numbers, and anything that can tell a story without saying a word. It is data, I believe, that holds all the answers.
Above all else, I very much enjoy taking the basics of finance and economics and applying it to the real world.
In regards to an overall theme, MoneyMamba will cover most anything from economics, to finance and investing, and the happenings in the business world. Ideally, if this blog were to be a financial publication, it’d be a little like Forbes–numerous topics, and plenty of variety.
Here are a few posts you might enjoy:
Anyway, enjoy your stay, I hope you’ve found a new home, and I promise that while the design is quite scary right now, I’ll be sure to have a good lookin’ theme up soon.
