About

My Story

Yo! My name is Desmond Mar. I’m a chartered accountant, 28 years old this year. I was previously working as an auditor at PwC KL. I’m obsessed with money management and passionate about helping others to improve their financial literacy.

Remember I was only 5 years old. One day my mum walked into my room. She was shocked when she saw me ironing my bank notes. Glad that I didn’t burn my money. Phew! But her jaws dropped.

Looks like I’ve a deep affection for it since I was a kid. But let me make it clear, I’m not one of those stingy and penny-pinching kinds of people. I’m a big fan of frugal living but also a strong proponent of living in the moment. I don’t sacrifice my social needs just because I want to save more.

I quit my job in October 2018 to begin my entrepreneurship journey. (My “thing” is still now work-in-progress. I’ll reveal more details when it’s up and running. Promise.)

I didn’t quit my job because I hated it. In fact, I’ve no regrets. It prepared me to embrace the challenges in my next stage of life. You can read my post – 4 Life Lessons I’ve Learned as an Auditor if you want to find out more about my career life.

It’s all about timing. When you’ve more than enough savings for emergencies, you know how to manage your own finances and make better money decisions, you can have a peace of mind at night while chasing your wild dreams.

And now I want to help you build your own dream too by taking baby steps. The very first step is to invest in yourself, that’s the only key to success. You might lose everything in life but not knowledge and experience, the only elements that will help you breakthrough in life. It’s also the only investment that gives you unlimited returns.

Still with Me?

If you’re still with me, sweet. You rock!

Seems like you’re not annoyed with me for blowing my own trumpet. Hahah…I believe to some extent, we share the same goal in life. To make the most of our money and life!
