The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me! Welcome to my blog.

Who am I?

My name is Evan. I am 26 years old and married to my queen Alma. We have a 2 year old daughter, also named Alma. I feel so blessed to be able to share my life with these two incredible ladies.

What is this blog about?

This is my personal blog that I will use to track my own personal development and personal finances.

My goal is to record my own progress so that after achieving some success I may inspire other people looking for ways to improve their own lives.

Personal Development

I will be writing about my personal development goals and track my progress towards achieving them. I hope that it will be a useful tool in helping me organize my thoughts and ideas and record progress on my goals.

I intend to write about quitting smoking, vaping, my personal diet, meal prepping, working out and tracking my personal results at the gym, and much more.

I will also share and review self improvement books that I have read. These books may cover personal development, personal finances, healthy eating and exercise.

Personal Finance

I will focus on my investments, savings, credit card and other debt. I will try to track and share my progress in a way that is entertaining and helpful to readers.

I intend to write about my investment strategy, saving and investment ideas, and my income investing portfolio-tracking my holdings, the expected annual income and historically received income it provides.

Why make it public?

I hope that someday readers can stumble upon my website and find value in my life lessons, successes, or maybe even my failures. I like the idea that someone across the world could read and learn with me.

I am not looking to sell you anything. I may use affiliate links in some of my post to help cover the cost of the blog.

Lets get started

My first few post will be on my investment strategy and investment portfolio. We will see where it goes from there.

I have chosen to start with my investments because I feel this is the easiest to record and numbers make tracking easy and non subjective.

I have been investing for several years now and only recently starting accurately tracking my results. I regret not being more organized and starting this tracking from day one, but alas, I can not change the past so progress will be tracked here from now on.


At 26 years old my life and investing journey has still only begun and I am still learning as I go. I am nobody special. I have lost money investing. I do not have all the answers for you and I’m certainly not a guru. I am not advocating my stock picks or strategy or suggesting anyone else to invest any money without doing their own due diligence.
