WHO ARE WE?
- This website was founded in 2016 by two millennials looking for ways to escape the treadmill of life and be financially free.
- After working for nearly four years in a top-tier investment bank we’re doing alright – a string of promotions, work trips and plenty of perks but there is still something missing.
- The saying ‘money can’t buy happiness’ just doesn’t cut it for us anymore. A lot of our generation’s struggles come from simply not having enough cash.
- Society tells us to:
- Study at a good college so that you get a good job…
- Find a stable job so that you pay off your student loan…
- Pay off your loan and start saving for a deposit on a house…
- Save enough to get on the property ladder to pay off a mortgage for the rest of your working career…
- Ramp up credit card debt on the side so that you still have a social life…
- The list is endless and needs to stop!
WHAT ARE WE DOING ABOUT IT?
- Three things:
- We’re actively following proven methods to escape the rat race – think low-cost index funds and long-term dividend investing. However, traditional methods are typically very slow and require a lot of upfront capital. Is this really the best way?
- We also want to try out fresh financial freedom strategies for the 21st century – think alternative finance like cryptocurrencies and CFD trading.
- Through this website, we aim to keep ourselves accountable and share our experience along the way. Feel free to be an Empty Bucketer and join the revolution!
SO WHAT DOES EMPTY BUCKET MEAN ANYWAY?
- Good question! A bucket is most useful when it’s empty. We’re here to empty our minds of all society’s expectations about how we should live. We’re here to start fresh and start living.
