About

Hi there, thanks for taking the time to view my about page – i’m flattered that you want to know more about me.

 

Who am I?

My name is Martin, and I am a 20 something guy who lives in Australia. I am a qualified Engineer who works for one of Australia’s major utilities (I can’t say any more than that unfortunately).  I am married with 1 child, own my own house outright, and am debt free.

 

What do I know about personal finance and wealth creation?

Ever since I was young, I have had an active interest in personal finance. I was always good at saving money, and as soon as I turned 18, I have been actively investing in the stock market, as well as many other interesting investment opportunities.

 

My Goals

There is nothing worse than being at work while your child grows up without you. So my main goal for the next 5-7 years is to quit working for someone else and work from home. The way I will achieve this, is through creating a number of profitable businesses (both online and bricks and mortar) that can generate enough income so that I no longer have to work for someone else.

 

What is DubestGeneration.com About?

It’s about sharing all the different things I have learned with you. I want you to be able to live debt free and enjoy everything debt free life has to offer.

The main things I will be talking about are:

  • Saving Money
  • Debt
  • Investments – including Property / Real Estate, Shares and plenty more
  • Business Ventures / Entrepreneurship
  • Retirement
  • My journey to being self employed

 

What’s with the Name?

The name has two significant meanings to me.

  1. I hate that the education system doesn’t teach kids to appreciate or even understand money. I want to ensure that the next generation isn’t the dumbest generation and that they have every opportunity to succeed.
  2. I had a terribly pompous university lecturer in my first year at university. His first words to the class have stuck with me to this day. He said that my generation was more stupid than all the ones before, and that he was wasting his time even trying to impart his years of knowledge and expert wisdom on us. Talk about getting off on the wrong foot. The guy turned out to be a self righteous asshat who was obviously suffering from a superiority complex, but it did motivate me to prove him wrong – perhaps that was the point.

 

What’s in it for you to read my blog?

I’m not going to sit here and tell you that I have all the answers, or that I have one of the most interesting blogs on the internet. But I will try to write good solid content and help as many people as possible. If you are interested in catching up with me, please use my contact page and I will try to get back to you ASAP.
