Hi my name is Tawcan. Welcome to my blog.

I decided to start this blog because of the following reasons:

  • I have too many ideas and thoughts in my mind. This blog offers a way for me to record them
  • I am passionate about personal finances and investing. I want to share my experience
  • I want to help people by sharing tips on how they may improve their lives

Living a joyful life is very important to me and it's a life-long quest. How do I plan to achieve a joyful life? I hope to share some of these ideas on this blog. Some ideas may include:

  • Having a good relationship with family and friends
  • Maintaining a work-life balance
  • Being at peace with myself

The blog is also a way for me to record my quest toward financial independence. Although achieving financial independence through the lottery sounds like a great idea, I want to rely on more concrete plans.

  • Practicing frugal living
  • Investing in dividend paying stocks
  • Generating multiple passive income streams

A little bit more about me:

  • I'm in my early 30s
  • I'm happily married
  • I'm a dad
  • I work in the high tech field
  • I live in beautiful BC, Canada

Here are a few more things about me.

    Hi there! Found you through Rockstar Finance, and looking forward to delving into your blog more. We're fellow skier/outdoor types seeking FI, just a bit south of you. 🙂

    I enjoyed your easy on the eyes "about" page. Your mentioning of family and friends in several different ways is beautiful. You have your priorities set and straight. I look forward to following your journey to financial independence where you, obviously, already have a strong foundation built.


    P.S. I hope you do not mind my adding you to my blogroll -- if so, please let me know.

    Early 30's and a dad... both characteristics that are very close to myself. Happily married, late 20's, no kids yet but hopefully in the near future. It's nice to see a lot of the same attributes in other bloggers that are trying to achieve FI. It makes things much easier and shows that it is doable. We are not quite at the 5 figure dividend income like yourself but we are certainly pushing ourselves to get that as quick as possible. It's a fun journey for sure!

    You definitely have a reader for life. I look forward to following your journey over the years.

    Quite enjoy your fine city, though I can't imagine navigating its real estate market! Ouch! I'll take the Canadian prairies for now, though we do like to visit the west coast ;). I'm looking forward to learning more about your take on PF and Investing.
