I sat on my laptop for an hour thinking of a creative way to start my website. But then I realised that what I needed to do was to just start. So here it is!
I’m a 25 year old, living in Mumbai. I’ve been working for the last three years but financially, I’m as good as I was on Day 1 of the job. In some ways maybe worse off. While I make decent money, my money management has been abysmal. I am currently in my second consumer debt trap with next to nothing in savings.
I recently changed my job when the pandemic hit and honestly, it’s kept me up at night. The fear that because I’m new, I could be dispensed if need be has been troubling to say the least. Add to it my money concerns and it’s not any easier. Even though I live with my family and they would bail me out of any such messes, the fact that I need to depend on them for it, is a kick in the stomach and a blow to the self esteem.
So about three months back, I embarked on a journey to be more financially responsible and someday reach a position of financial independence. This blog will be the space where I share that with the internet. So if anyone out there is reading this, welcome to my world! I hope you read this and avoid making my mistakes. If you’re already a financially wise person, please send me some tips too and share this with someone you think is making these mistakes. We’re all in this together!
