This is the 76th edition of our guest post series called 10 Questions. It also will be one of the last. Everything must come to an end and 10 Questions will say ‘”Good bye!” near the end of 2016. If you’ve already sent me your answers or told me that you’re going to be doing so, don’t worry; I’m still going to publish you.
Today’s interview is with Mr. TFR from Ten! Factorial Rocks. I’ve been out of school for a while and when I first saw the exclamation point after the number 10, I was confused. I kinda remembered that it was some math thing, but my brain was temporarily failing. I closed my eyes, blew out the cobwebs from my neurons and it came back to me. In case you don’t remember, Mr. TFR explains it here.
Mr. TFR, I hope your 10!$ dreams come true!
Tell me about your blog and why it’s great.
My website (tenfactorialrocks.com) is based on 4 simple maxims that drive my life and hopefully, many other seekers out there: They are: a) Save Money b) Avoid Traps c) Invest Well and d) Find Meaning (of life, spirit, work, relationships, people….whatever appeals to you). These are captured in my Ten Factors that outline what my website is all about.
Ten Factorial Rocks (TFR) was created to chronicle my journey towards retirement while sharing my views on the learning’s, absurdities and pitfalls along the way towards my search for a more meaningful life. Wall Street finance and stock option riches have one thing in common – they never passed through my life!
TFR is not just about financial independence. TFR is also about self- empowerment while getting to financial independence, and our search for a better, meaningful life (of which early retirement is just one milestone). See why I chose this strange name.
Tell me how you’re going to change the world with your blog (dream big or don’t dream at all!).
I want TFR to be the reliable compass to help anyone navigate the complex, changing and often, confusing world we live in. My topics cover the gamut of modern life, involving money, work, relationships, investing and also, analysis of interesting news.
Truth in writing and objectivity in analysis are my anchors that I hope my readers come to appreciate. I want at least a million readers of my website to have made better decisions in their life journey and live a better and meaningful life!
What goals do you have for your blog, short and long term?
I started recently but I hope to have 100,000 unique readers for my blog in the short term, going up to 1 million regular readers in a year. Ambitious, I know, but as you said, dream big or not at all! Continue reading
