I’m Lindsay: a thirty something year old Scottish outlander. I was born in Ayrshire, Scotland and now live in Cumbria, England.
Growing up I lived in a small town South of Glasgow before moving to Singapore in my early teens. I lived there for two years and was lucky enough to travel in Southeast Asia and Australasia. Returning to the UK my family settled in Northumberland where I completed secondary school and my A levels. I spent my University years studying photography at the University of Cumbria and worked as a photographer before pursuing a career in marketing.
After facing company restructures and redundancy in 2019 I decided to learn more about the FIRE movement (financial independence, retire early). I want to have full control over my finances and my life. I don’t intend to retire early but if I’m ever unhappy in a job again I want to have the financial freedom to leave.
Financial freedom is what drives me to learn about making extra money, saving, budgeting and investing. This blog has become the place I share my journey.
I hope it will inspire you to take control of your finances and your future.
