Who am I?

My name is Ryan, I’m behind the site CashingTheCow.com. I was raised in a middle class and fairly frugal family in Colorado. I’ve been interested in finance and entrepreneurship since adolescence, but lacked confidence to make much happen aside from a few odd business venture attempts here and there. I wanted to join the military, but my mom begged me not to. I listened. Instead, I studied engineering and mathematics at university in Colorado. 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 which have gone on to be profitable, and many of which have long-ago closed their doors still begging to be forgotten. I’m still in my 30’s and consider myself to be hustlin’ because there is no such thing as ‘financially well-off’ in the post COVID-19 world.

Why did I create this site?

I wanted a way of sharing ways of making money, alongside writing about running businesses. Most of the thoughts I provide have been gained through failures or bad experiences, rather than a success story or so-called proven frameworks.

Aren’t there enough financial sites?

Some blogs just leave us lost in the content or are too generic to be useful to those of us wanting more detail. 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, 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.
