Hey guys. My name is Scott C. Waring and this is my wife Jennifer. We have a son in the 5th grade which is costing more than I bargained for.
I'm a 48 year old guy just trying to think in depth about the looming idea of retirement. Sure a lot of people retired early and thats really cool, but I'm the kinda guy that needs something to keep me busy day to day. Work hard, play hard I always say. I lived in America and met my wife in university there, but she missed Taiwan so we moved back here to stay.
I received my BA in elementary education and my masters degree in counseling education. I was an elementary school teacher and a school counselor. My wife was a nurse in a Taipei hospital. So...coming to Taiwan, it seemed natural to fall into teaching English to kids. Since I have been here, I have taught over 1,500 students, changing the world one English word at a time.
I created this financial retirement and savings blog in hope that I can teach others some useful life hacks that could save you and me money. I also hope that others will come here and share some advice and experience in saving money or in preparing for retirement. Here, I'm not the star, we all are. So please, I'm just starting out here, so please leave a comment and tell us about yourself. I look forward to meeting all of you.
