I’m Romeo Jeremiah, the author of the personal finance books, How We Prevent Wealth and The Wealth Number.
I earned a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Louisiana State University, and an M.B.A. from Webster University.
Warren Buffett said it best:
Generally speaking, investing in yourself is the best thing you can do. Anything that improves your own talents; nobody can tax it or take it away from you. They can run up huge deficits and the dollar can become worth far less. You can have all kinds of things happen. But if you’ve got talent yourself, and you’ve maximized your talent, you’ve got a tremendous asset that can return ten-fold.
I’m always seeking ways to invest in myself.
I have a strong passion to help others achieve success in personal finance, entrepreneurship, and education.
My hobbies include reading, writing, and studying Spanish.
My educational interests include personal finance, entrepreneurship, psychology and philosophy.
I currently live in the suburbs of Memphis,Tennessee.
A little More About Me
I love writing to reflect on life, in general, but the focus of my writing is personal finance. I exist to teach you how to navigate the personal finance world, and then master it!
Through my writings you’ll learn how to minimize your financial stress, maximize your savings, and pursue the life that you are destined to live.
Let’s dominate personal finance.
It seems as though everyone has complicated the rules of personal finance.
And because of this, people are overwhelmed with what’s required to live simply.
If you buy fewer THINGS, you’ll have MORE money. And when you have more money, you can buy more experiences and also eventually buy your freedom.
This is exactly what I want you to reflect on through my writings.
I’ve written my own personal finance rule book. I’m always striving to spend less on the things that I care least about so I can spend more on the things I do care about, such as traveling.
I can easily buy many more things, but it’ll be at the expense of always NEEDING to work. Instead, I strive to save at least 50% of my income using the same concepts that I wrote about in The Wealth Number. I’m set to escape the rat race permanently in January 2020. I want you to be able to escape it on your own terms as well.
I don’t teach how to become frugal, I teach how to earn more and buy fewer of the things that matters less to you so that you’ll have more to spend on what matters. But, if you want a latte every day…buy yourself a latte!
Let’s also dominate our earnings potential.
When I’m not at my day job, I’m reading and looking for more ways to succeed financially. I’ve created several businesses online (none yet with huge success, but have learned a lot from the experiences) and have connected with several influencers. I love being an opportunity maker.
“Your network is your net worth.”
I stand by that model. I enjoy helping others by teaching them about or connecting them with those who have better answers than me.
