About me

Do you want to be in charge of your own finances and live a life where your time is your own and you aren’t trading it for money? If you do then you have come to the right place.

Hi my name is Martin and welcome to my website where I share ideas, tools and guides on how to start earning an income online.

I got fed up…

off working for somebody where I was only a number and my efforts weren’t appreciated. I started at the bottom as a warehouse operative and worked my way up in the company. By the time I left I was an area manager with a company car and a few perks that you got for your loyalty to the company. There was no satisfaction in what I was doing and the increased workloads soon out weighed the rewards I was getting.

Surviving on one pay check was dead so to increase my income I had started doing maintenance work in my spare time and luckily for me work started picking up.

Going self employed was very exciting and the best thing about it was that the efforts I put in was for me and the money I was making was mine, I was able to choose my own hours and decide which jobs I wanted to take on or leave.

The only downside of being self employed is that you never stop. When you aren’t out doing jobs you are either finding new clients, doing invoicing or staying on top of all the paperwork and accounts that need doing.

When you stop to take time off you aren’t earning and this used to bother me a lot. When we went away on holiday I could never relax and just enjoy my time off because I was always worried about money.

This was no way to life and soon enough I worked myself into the ground and suffered a nervous breakdown. My wife and I took the decision for me to stop working for myself as my health was more important.

I am currently working as a Fireplace Fitter and started researching ways to generate multiple streams of income that will generate passive income.

I want to Help People..

get financial freedom because I know how hard it is to make ends meet.  It is getting harder and harder to pay for food, shelter, and utilities. With all the price increases we are seeing on a daily basis we can all do with a bit of extra income.

I’ve been there, and my goal is to give back all that I can so that others don’t have to live through what I did. Financial freedom is not just about having money, it’s about living the life you want without worrying about money holding you back from achieving your goals.

The Goal of this site…

is to help you find ideas and inspiration to live a life of financial freedom. It is to show you the methods I am using to create my own wealth to be able to leave the rat race.

So join me as I delve into:

  1. Personal Finance
  2. Making Money Online
  3. Blogging
  4. Digital Marketing
  5. Investing

Unfortunately it is not a get rich quick scheme and you need to be willing to put in the time and effort to achieve the end result.

If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.

All the best,

Martin Oosthuizen
