Welcome To Making Momentum!
Hello and welcome to Making Momentum!
I created this blog to share my own personal journey as I try to optimize my life and start to take self improvement into my own hands.
I graduated from the Canadian university system at the start of 2014, after completing two different Honours Bachelors spanning 6 years total,
So I did what every recent grad does and started my career in the corporate world working for a major corporation downtown….
I was making my bi-weekly payments towards my student loans and ‘chipping away’ (that’s what I kept telling myself) on my credit card with a couple hundred dollars here, a couple hundred there.
I just figured it would take me a while to pay off my loans and credit card debt, but that’s normal right? The majority of people in my age range or situation were doing the same thing so I just accepted that this was what life is.
In mid-2016 I started to realize that I was just stuck in a cycle and making no traction.
But that malaise was still hanging over me. I started to ask myself some questions:
- Can I have my own business or how do I diversify my income?
- What are the cost effective ways to travel while being on a tight budget?
- How do I pay off my student loans quicker?
- What am I doing wrong with my credit card?
- What level of funds do I actually need saved for retirement?
- How can I start to get healthier and take my well-being more serious?
- How do I get more personal freedom and fulfillment?
…as soon as I asked myself those questions, I realized that there was endless information on how I could start to optimize my life and live life on my terms.
Podcasts, books, blogs, courses, conferences, social media accounts, TED talks.
A whole community ranging from world renowned industry experts in their various fields to relatable people who either had or are having the same experiences that I was.
Literally thousands of mentors and like minded people just a few clicks of the mouse, stroke of the keyboard or taps on the phone away.
I found this true for anything I was searching out; Personal Finance, Side Hustles, Travel, Health & Wellness, Productivity, General Lifestyle…anything.
Living A Rich Life & Making Momentum
So that was it, I knew it was time to push myself to live a rich life. Rich in the sense of personal fulfillment, taking control and general betterment. Not just the financial sense of a rich life.
Since having my personal aha moment at the start 2016, I have slowly been making momentum with small wins along the way, step-by-step trying to take full control over my life and live on my own terms.
