Welcome! Dear Foxy Monkey Reader,

Thank you for visiting the FM lounge! I hope you will find some useful content here.

This blog is all about life hacking.

To be more specific, I will try to share my knowledge and grow with like-minded people on topics such as personal finance, investments, tax, savings and occasionally, career stuff.

I’m always trying out new things and never let my money rest – I invest it. If passive income is what you’re after, you may like this long guide: Best passive income investments. Although I will normally make a side income in different ways, most of my net worth comes from having a high-paying job, living within my means and optimising my taxes.

Part of my money success comes from my ability to invest my company profits. My company used to sit on idle cash earning zero interest, not anymore. I recently launched the Company Investing Academy for UK Limited Company investors. I am confident this is the best place for business owners to learn how to put their business cash to work.

Speaking of work, I find that cycling to work is a nice hack to better health and higher savings. I feel so fresh after that although I must admit I do need my cup of coffee cycling notwithstanding!

When it comes to money management, I weigh all options when it comes to paying down my mortgage VS investing. I partly own my home but I really like the benefits of renting. The blog turns a bit philosophical sometimes. This is because I love exploring what makes us happy and fulfilled. 

It all started after I realised that many of my friends wanted help in this area. They’re too busy managing their personal lives, building a career, having fun, children etc which I understand.

I am definitely not perfect or 100% correct – trust me, I’ve made many mistakes myself. But I’m passionate to learn and share. I thought that instead of helping only them, I could start a journey to help anyone interested. So here I am!

The Goal

To become financially independent and have fun. As the famous saying goes: “Your money can work harder than you can”.

I would probably call this blog smarter-living-without-trading-off-pleasure but it’s not as catchy as the Foxy Monkey is.

Behind the Mask

Foxy Monkey’s name is Michael. I am a tech professional in my mid-30s living with my lovely wife and kid in one of the most expensive cities in the world – London.  

I love coffee, algorithms, tennis and cycling. Since university, I managed to double my income every 2 years by trying different projects, constantly learning and getting out of my comfort zone.

I also save a good amount and invest these savings to generate more income. This will allow us to escape the 9-5 lifestyle in seven four years and “retire early”! I shares all my findings on this blog and welcome you aboard!

Oh before I forget… Every 2 weeks, I send a handwritten email with honest, valuable content. This is a great way to slowly consume the blog.  Feel free to subscribe below.
