Hi! My name is Marvin. I am on a path toward financial freedom. On this blog, I share thoughts and ideas on Personal Finance & Investing. I started this blog because I believe that money is just a means to an end: to be free to spend your time as you wish, to maximize your positive impact on the world. To track my progress towards complete financial independence I use Personal Capital. Most of my monthly surplus I invest in Vanguard ETFs with M1 Finance. I use the dividends (plus their 'borrow' option) to invest in real estate deals with Fundrise. Finally, I invest the real estate distributions into startups using Mainvest and high-yield real estate debt with Groundfloor.
