Hello, I am Ms. Finding Money from Singapore. At the time of writing, I am a Software Specialist¹ who is looking to find her way into financial independence.
I started my journey in early 2015 and semi-stopped (unknowingly!!) in 2016. I hopped back on track in 2017. But had quite a rocky year financially. It is now 2018 and I am determined to work hard on my journey towards financial independence. My initial journey can be found in ERE.
