Fortune favours the bold.
I'm The Brown Pound, I serve the public health sector in England although I've always been fascinated by Finance. I love reading the Economics section of the newspaper starting in my late teens even if I barely understood the articles. Finally got back into it in 2017 and started my investing journey in 2018.
There are hundreds of FIRE blogs out there. I will not regurgitate the same ideas; the blog is essentially my idea dump board. Whatever comes.
My strategy is very simple, although most of my time is allocated towards my investment portfolio that I actively manage. I allocate traditionally but mostly towards the crypto markets nowadays.
