Who am I?
Hey there! My name is Ian Bong.
I'm a medical doctor by training, but my passion lies in personal finance, investments, psychology, technology (green tech, sustainability etc) and even politics.
The idea of financial independence is intriguing to me because I'm tired of the rat race.
What is Fiholic all about?
I write (not only on this blog, on Twitter as well) to break free from society's constraints of what a doctor can or cannot do. Writing is cathartic for me as I can express myself freely and share my learnings with the world. Combined with my passion for all things personal finance, I wanted to share with the world things I learned all these years.
I write mainly about:
- Personal experience related to personal finance
Plus, writing is a great way to create serendipity as my blog has enabled me to connect with people I otherwise wouldn't have met - all by leveraging the power of the Internet! I have made some side income from starting this blog as well.
What does Fiholic mean?
Fi represents Financial Independence, reflecting my eventual goal in life.
-holic means addicted to something
Fiholic means the state of being addicted to the pursuit of financial independence, relentlessly striving towards achieving this goal
