I am a guy that is interested in all things money. I started my own website a couple years back - www.moneyahoy.com. MoneyAhoy is a website devoted to money saving, making money, and investment ideas. My goal here is to help you reach your financial dreams and improve your life! I’m on a journey to become wealthy, and through the process I hope we can learn from each other how to optimize our lives to maximize our money and lead a more fulfilling life.
Derek Chamberlain (that’s me) founded and currently runs MoneyAhoy.com. So far, I’ve been relatively successful at making money, and saving a lot of money over the years. In all honesty, I’ve completely butchered investing before starting this blog. I tried my hand at the whole day trading thing and failed miserably. But, that’s a story for another day…
On this blog I plan to share with you financial successes and failures that I have experienced. My hope is that you’ll be able to learn something from these stories and apply it to your own life, or share something that you’ve learned that can help me or other site users. Let’s take the journey together and explore how we can save more money, make more money, and invest it wisely to achieve our financial dreams!
