Introduction to the book
This is not a textbook or a self-help book. It is a collection of my meaningful pieces I had written in my blog since 2006. It captures my life events since that year. This compilation is to fulfill my dream of publishing a book. I know it is narcissistic, but not to do it is a pity.
The blog Living Investment was started when I went into early retirement. Because I was trained as an accounting and finance professional and I was able to retire at age forty-nine, I have experiences to share in areas of investments and retirement planning. The second aspect of Living Investment is living this life. It is a journal of personal encounters. My life journey changes from one of high stress to a fulfilling one. If not for my decision to quit full-time employment, I could still be visiting my doctor almost every week.
This book is structured in chronological order and blog posts are marked by themes. It captures moments of past as major events happened, like the global financial crisis of 2008/09. The writing is therefore in context.
This book has three main themes:
1. Financial management, investment and retirement planning
2. Living tips
3. Life journey
