Welcome and hello to thewahman.com (aka. The Working at Home Man).
My name is Matt. I am a 30’s something man who has been working at home (hence the name of the website) for the last 3 years. I started on my path to financial freedom at a young age, but only recently realized that I am able to achieve this from my own home. Stick around and find out the various ways that you can also make money from home, helping you to achieve your own financial goals. If you are interested in seeing my progress, feel free to check out my portfolio here. I also publish monthly updates here.
This website comes in a few different sections. Let me explain some background behind each:
Earn (Working from Home)
I work from home full time and I love it. It allows me to spend more time with my young family, and less time traveling to and from an office. How did I do it? simple. I moved countries and asked my boss if I could keep my job. They needed the help, I needed the job, and it’s working perfectly
I plan on bringing you articles to help you work from home, including working for yourself (things like creating your own brand, business, website, etc), reskill, and find work (transcribing, freelance or other).
I currently have not spent much time or effort trying to freelance myself, apart from working on my blog. Soon I will discuss this in more detail.
Invest (Earning Passive Income)
I want to be financially independent. Therefore, I have looked at alternate ways of making money (i.e. methods than stocks). These methods aren’t shady business practices or rouge horse race bets, they are legitimate ways to make money. I mainly discuss
- Peer-to-peer investing (also known as crowdlending), which is the process of people funding loans for other people
- dividend investing
- affiliate marketing
- various other means.
My current passive income streams include shares, peer-to-peer investing, this blog, and various other smaller items. You can see the status of my investment returns here.
I have been interested in sustainability from a very young age. I love to be at home and spend time with the family, fix up the house, or be in the garden.
The house that we live in now has a big backyard with fruit trees and vegetable patches. It is such a great feeling to be able to produce and store your own food, not to mention how much money you could potentially be saving!
