Hello there! Welcome to Wealth Awesome.
A Canadian personal finance website to help you improve your money skills.
Who Am I?
I’m Christopher Liew and I was born and raised in Canada.
I’ve worked as a financial advisor at RBC, an investment wholesaler at CI Investments, and an energy trader at Enmax. I’ve been a CFA© Charterholder since 2016.
As an author, my work has been published or featured on Yahoo Finance, MSN Money, and The Motley Fool.
In 2019, I left Canada to work and travel the world while writing about my journey.
Why I started this site
Even though I graduated with a finance degree, I didn’t know much about managing my own finances and investing.
Like many Canadians, I started off by investing in mutual funds with extremely high fees, which I have since stopped.
I wasn’t great at saving and wasted a lot of money buying stuff I didn’t need that ultimately didn’t make me happy.
I noticed that in every workplace that I’ve been to (myself included!), many people are unhappy and unfulfilled with their careers.
I struggled with finding the right career path for me, as I suspect many people do. I tried many different finance jobs for a wide range of companies. I even attended a coding bootcamp and became a web developer for a brief time.
I realized that above all, I craved freedom and meaningfulness in my career.
Today, I’m proud to say I:
- Can work from anywhere in the world from my laptop
- Save at least 40% of my income
- Travelled to over 30 countries
- Am finally content with my career
- Have multiple sources of income such as freelance writing, a rental property, ETFs, and stocks.
I want to pass along to you what I learned from all my experiences with career, finance, investing, and travelling.
