Welcome to SG Wealth Builder! My name is Gerald and I hope that you find this blog useful in your wealth building journey. The motto of this blog is “to make money, to build wealth and to preserve wealth”.
I started blogging since 2010 and as I look back on my journey, I often wonder what kind of brand that I want to build. With growing readership and increasing number of partnerships, I then realized that this blog is not just about my investment journey, my thoughts and insights on how to build wealth. I have the unique opportunity to make a difference to other’s lives.
Like many people, I am just an average Joe with a day job. I started my wealth building journey way back in 1994 when my late father suffered from a stroke that made him half-paralyzed and unable to work. That was really a tough period for my family because my dad was the sole breadwinner and he had to support three school-going children, my mum (a house-wife) and my grandmother. There were frequent fights between dad and mom over money issues.
Due to my family’s money woes, I couldn’t wait to grow up quickly and be financially independent.
But somehow, in spite of his condition, my dad always managed to bring food on the table and made sure that my siblings and myself received good education. For this, I am forever grateful and indebted to my late father. I am proud of what he had done for my family and the tremendous sacrifices he made for us.
Because of my humble background, I realized the importance of financial literacy and how money management can change a person’s destiny. Through the years, there were valuable lessons learned in life that I really hope to share with the others.
I really hope to leave behind a legacy. So that when I passed on, people can still benefit from my knowledge. Therefore I created this blog, SG Wealth Builder, to share my thoughts on various money-making, investments and wealth building ideas.
My objective is to engage Singaporeans on topics related to personal finance, shares, career management and gold bullion. Through the exchange of views, my belief is that Singaporeans’ financial competencies will be leveled up and the learning curve can be shortened.
If you are looking for get-rich-quick methods or hot tips on which shares to invest, this blog is not for you. This is because this blog is about my wealth building journey and the focus is on personal development. I welcome any feedback or comments and you may contact me at email@example.com.
