Welcome to Piggy Wise!
My name is Praveen, a husband, blogger, father and a software developer living in Australia. I bought piggywise.com domain in June 2013, this blog is a personal finance blog offering information about money management, investment, building wealth and lifestyle.
I have started my financial journey from ground up like most, thankfully my education was sponsored by my parents, so I don’t have any student loan debt or bad debts- all the debt I have are the ones I took for my investment properties.
So unfortunately I don’t have any debt repaying challenge on this blog. But what I share is my financial wisdom gained through hands on experience.
I have come to Australia from non-English speaking background, I do struggle with this limitation when trying to express my thoughts but I think that this will fade away as the blog posts increase.
This blog can be considered as my online financial diary. I started my investment journey by purchasing a property that I currently live in and I used equity of that property to buy another investment property. I have also invested in overseas property market, I called this my last investment property and would like to dive deep into equity markets to diversify my portfolio.
My love for equities runs from child hood days, when my dad bought me bank of Baroda shares. I was fascinated and was eager to know what makes the price move up or down. I don’t think I have given fair time or capital to invest in these markets as I am stretched with property deals.
Over course of my financial journey I have my fair share of don’ts and do’s, I don’t have any formal education in finance all the thoughts I share on this site are either learnt by experience or through books.
I hope you’ll join me on this journey.
