Who am I?
My name is Kristi and I am a teacher. I am 28 years old. I live in Estonia. I mostly teach English and Economics at a high school. I also do freelance translating and work as a private tutor.
I have a BA in Political Science. I have a teaching degree and I’m currently working on my MA in Personnel and development.
Why am I writing this?
I want to analyze and document my financial journey, and hopefully help others do the same! Being public about my goals and ideas also gives me a sense of accountability to push myself to try harder to achieve my goals.
I also hope to see my ideas improve as time goes by and I hope to be a part of many interesting discussions about the financial world with all my readers.
Why is this blog called “Money is your friend”?
Money is everyone’s friend isn’t it? At least when you have enough of it to push the topic out of your mind which isn’t the case for most people. This is why instead of looking at money as a necessary evil that causes problems I’ll try to make my money work for me.
What do you know about money and finance?
I’ve been teaching Economics for high school students for 4 years, mostly focusing on personal finance. I also have a good basic understanding of economics from several economics classes during my university studies. I’ve also read a lot of personal finance books and personal finance blogs and forums to analyze other people’s situations and problem solutions.
I am of course not an economics expert – I’m heavily self taught, a lot of it coming from personal experience and I’m sharing my thoughts in hopes that at least others can avoid making the mistakes that I did.
