Welcome to the Two Cents Read!
Who am I?
My name is Hakim. I am a Ph.D. candidate, a lifelong reader, writer, and a loving husband and father to a beautiful wife and son.
As I grew up in academic culture (my late father and my mom are both lecturers), so I was expected to follow their footsteps [therefore, please pardon my boring formal sentences sometimes 😉 ]
So a part of my early life was spent to achieve that goal, going straight for the academic field.
I was the best student, straight A’s, society’s president, community service, theatre actor- well, all that fun stuff! LOL
Just after I finished my master’s studies, I worked as a lecturer, got married and then planning to go for P.hD.
So, I have to maintain the job, the family and my studies all in one place, trying not to get lost.
Then I decided to leave my job and trying to focus more on my family and studies, looking for part-time jobs that won’t need too much of my valuable time. And that hardship, though it’s hurt, has helped me learn a lot.
Well, I’m a real person who struggles with money just like you do. I tried so many things to feed my family and keep going.
This is where I started to learn how to manage my finances. I started to learn how to make money online, how to invest, and how to save money.
And that’s the reason why I started this Two Cents Read. To share with you the things I know.
Disclaimer, I’m not an expert on financial management.
All the things I wrote are just based on my opinion, which I think will help you to do better on your personal finance.
The ancient Chinese philosopher Confucius said, “He who will not economize will have to agonize”.
He was indeed right! Economization or financial stability is not a new concept but an ancient one, deep-rooted into the very nature of mankind.
Well, I’m not going to teach you how to retire at an early young age or how to become a millionaire in 3 years.
But what I can assure you is honesty (in giving away my opinions), and a journey to a learning process.
Whatever new things I discover, I will let you know. Whether it’s good or bad- it’s the first reason anyway on why I want to share with you guys.
If you need anything or you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me. It’s always a pleasure to get somebody so that I can improve myself.
