About

Welcome to SavingNinja,

This is the place where I can connect with like-minded individuals and document my progress to financial independence. The place where a Ninja Clan can be created and sustained, where we can help each other earn more, invest and live a life of fulfilment.

Ninja’s are silent, they go unnoticed but the most important principle of all is that a Ninja is deadly. They’re sent to assassinate and destroy. They’re ruthless, but they adhere to a strong mutual bond and fiercely protect their own.

Anyone can become a SavingNinja. It could be your local postman, your old school friend or your next-door neighbor. Here is the place where we can convene and discuss, grow and prosper and ultimately win at the game of life!

Below are the following traits that I exude:

  1. The desire to earn money. Even though I am frugal by nature and an aspiring minimalist; I want to earn money. I see earning money like a game that I want to beat, it’s fun! Being a completionist is in my nature; I need to get that high score.
  2. Always growing. There’s so much in this world to learn. I adopt the same approach to my finances and life that I do in my career, I always want to learn and most importantly; I always want to grow. Achieving true happiness from self-fulfilment is just as important as becoming rich.
  3. Ruthlessness. I’ve never shied away from bending the rules. I aim to make money and to reach a place of fulfilment for myself and my Ninja Clan. I will fiercely protect my own above all else; nothing else matters. Together we will discuss all methods to achieve this goal, no matter what the cost.
  4. Honesty. I may not be the most moralistic or politically correct individual, but I believe that honesty is the most important trait of all. You will never see any information on this website that I know is false. I will never mislead.

Together we will study, learn and discuss these three key principles:

  1. Making money. I believe anyone can make a lot of money, if they’re just willing to listen, learn and try. Together we will find ways to earn more, we will study business ventures, offers, and hustles and most importantly how to invest wisely.
  2. Finding true happiness. Without happiness, money is worthless. You need to dedicate just as much, if not more, time into being happy than you do for saving. We will find out together how to be happy whilst saving, when you reach financial independence and when you retire.
  3. Fulfilment. True happiness doesn’t come until you find fulfilment. I believe that every individual is just biding their time until they find their final destination. Together we will explore the notion of how to find fulfilment, what it is and how to make it last.

The most notable learning comes from interaction. We will learn and grow together and in turn, I have no doubt that we can conquer the world!
