Hi, you can call me Miss V.

I grew up in a small town in China. After finishing high school, I flew 10,000 kms and moved to Canada at age 18.  I remember sitting on the plane and thinking – well, not much. I had no idea it meant my life was about to change forever.

My parents grew up in the midst of the Culture Revolution era. They made their way into the corporate world at just 18 years old – where they worked for the next 40 years. Although my parents missed the opportunity to attend University, they know how important education is and paid for my University tuition in full. I graduated with a Finance degree 10 years ago and started my own journey in corporate, I now work full-time as a Business Consultant in the financial services industry.

About this blog

I first heard about FIRE (Financial Independence, Retire Early) in 2014. A friend sent me an article from Mr. Money Mustache and I was hooked. Today I’m on the journey to become work optional and financially free by 2030. I look forward to getting my time back to focus on what really matters in life. 

This is what brings me here today. To share my knowledge and help YOU get your personal finance in order. I will use this space to write about the money with a view family’s financial updates – maybe they will inspire you to start your own journey. I will also be sharing resources, tools and tips that have helped me. 

Money may not bring your happiness, but the lack of it can certainly cause stress. I want to show you it’s possible to start exactly where you are today – by focusing on the right things – you can start reshaping your future. One day at a time.
