Hey! Another Canadian joins the forums!


#1

Good evening everyone. Long time lurker of the site but first time joining the forums.
34 yr old guy with a husky, 2 kids (4 yr old son, newborn daughter) and a wonderful wife. Located in Ontario.

In 2011 we started reading about finances and really got serious after drinking the juice, Dave Ramseys Total money makeover. We had over 60k debt and was wasting about 1600 a month on minimum payments. We smashed that debt in 2 years and got into paying off the mortgage early and precious metals.

Clearly the metals didn’t have a good return on investment =) It was a learning lesson and its a good insurance on the markets.

Anyways now we are all about improving our passive income through dividend’s, a private investment and our recent solar panel project. In time I plan on adding new sources of income.
I have been blogging for the last year and really enjoy it.

Feel free to check it out www.passivecanadianincome.ca

Make sure you say hi!

I look forward to learning about how you guys are investing, pursuing fire and even promoting your blogs / tips of the trades.
Have a great night!
Cheers
Rob

Welcome, Rob! Congrats on paying off your debt and I look forward to reading your blog! Is the solar panel project for your house, or a business you started?
