I am not the same person that I was was when Steemit.com started, then Hive, or even a month ago when Daily Telos started
I always enjoy new experiences. and this new experience makes me think and keep my thoughts on the blockchain forever. You are always growing. The experiences do not stop, and that is good, living in a country that is little by little more difficult, difficult to get food, difficult to buy clothes or shoes.
But this is life here in Venezuela. And these very experiences that seem so difficult when you go through them are the ones you look back on with gratitude for how far you’ve come.

It is always good to grow, and every day to learn, The experiences do not stop, and that is good. And how wonderful it is to leave a mark on our life on the blockchain.
What matters in life is not to do more than someone else, but to do everything in one’s ability with the greatest possible intensity. That being the case, because we all have something to tell and different moments, that is why we should all know this beautiful way of telling our stories, such as Daily Telos.
As strong as the road, “Everything passes” and you will look back, and I know that some lesson life has taught me.
As a means of introduction, I am a relatively simple man who desires little more than to feed, shelter and educate my family and leave the world a little better than how I found it.
Unfortunately, I was finding this is easier said than done and getting harder. I found myself asking ‘why’?
My background is in accounting and financial services. Ten years of accounting across several different fields did lay a solid foundation for the past 12 years spent providing holistic financial advice.
I do not consider myself entrepreneurial and I have a strong level of admiration for those who are. It is the small business owners who drive the prosperity of nations.
Whilst this website will be considered ‘self-help’, I do not consider myself to be a ‘guru’.
I do however have 3 aptitudes which have proven to be highly beneficial to those whom I serve, being:
I am a ‘contrarian’ by nature.
I have a strong tendency to be ‘skeptical’ of the motivations of others.
I have a passion for ‘strategy’.
These aptitudes have also given me cause to observe and reflect upon the financial and political systems across my home country and the West generally.
Even the most rudimentary examinations of our monetary, taxation and superannuation / pension systems are enough to conclude that the future for the ‘working class’ is looking disconcerting.
Add to this an ever expanding bureaucracy, regulation, compliance overburden and generally poor government budgeting – then the financial future of the ‘middle-class’ is a matter of concern too.
Fortunately I am not the only one who is concerned and doing something about it. There are others out there openly critical of the politicians, bankers, advisers and educators who they claim have been perpetuating a financial mistruths for 3 generations. I hope to be able to highlight their arguments here, at this site, over the coming months.
Historically the outcome of poor financial systems is devastating. Homelessness. Hyper-inflation, which could make pension and savings accounts worthless. Starvation. A general inability to trade and conduct any type of business.
Regardless of the above, I believe there is much you can do as an individual to protect your financial position and even opportunities to avail ourselves of. There is also much we can do together through the advocacy for sound monetary systems, along with sensible and conservative government budgeting.
It all starts however with your financial ‘re-education’. In other words your ‘Financial Awakening.’
