Let’s spice things up! Today marks the first post in a new category here on my blog, which will cover all sorts of topics related to financial freedom. In the past couple of years, I’ve started to explore the mysterious yet fascinating world of money. Well, not only money per se, but also wealth and how to build as well as manage it.
