Who am I?
My name is Ryan, I’m behind the site Cashing The Cow. I’ve been interested and involved in finance and entrepreneurship since adolescence. I had run a number of small businesses growing up, from mowing lawns, to reselling comic books and dirty magazines. I studied engineering and mathematics at university. After graduating, I worked in technology consulting for a few years. While laboring my days away as a traveling consultant, I realized no matter how much or long I worked I would never be compensated for the value I thought I was giving to the company. I decided to leave consulting and studied a year abroad in England. After getting my Masters degree, I wanted a piece of the big tech city action. So instead of moving to Silicon Valley, I moved to London and started working in the start-up scene there. I’ve since stayed in England and through the years have worked at, invested in, and co-founded several start-ups. Some of these companies have gone on to be profitable. However, many have long-ago closed their doors still begging to be forgotten.
Why did I create Cashing The Cow?
I wanted a way of sharing ways of making money, alongside writing about running businesses. Most of the thoughts and information this site provides have been gained through failures or bad experiences. There are few success stories or proven frameworks that aren’t born out of repeated failure. Otherwise, the articles are information in nature and meant to educate readers on the basics.
Aren’t there enough financial sites?
Some blogs just leave us lost in the content or are too generic to be useful. Many of us want more detail and explanations other than just commentary. This is because earning about money online can be slightly overwhelming with conflicting strategies and approaches.
My aim is to give you some new perspectives on earning, investing and saving your money. All of this without the fluff or bias that can come with money-speak for the masses. Also, it’s always good to exchange ideas in the comments section (if you’re inclined). I hope this site gives you information that you find to be informative, insightful, helpful and hopefully slightly entertaining.
I’m glad you’ve chosen to spend some time on cashingthecow. Your comments and feedback are appreciated. You can reach out to me via the contact page.
No matter where you are in your financial journey, I hope this site can help you start or stay on the course of cashing the cow.– Ryan from CashingTheCow
