is 2 today!!

1 min Read Published: 06 Feb 2012

presentIn the two years since I started I have written 363,938 words, in over 727 articles and personally answered hundreds of emails and readers’ questions on topics ranging from tax, to pensions, to investments through to money saving tips - all for FREE. I have even launched a 6 week email course to fix your finances.

How the site came about

For those who don’t know, I came up with the idea of Money to the Masses while on paternity leave following the birth of my daughter, Isabella. It sometimes takes a life changing event to make you sit back and take stock of your life and the things around you. Days later I launched the website and every night since I have been writing into the small hours producing articles and answering emails. You may be surprised to know this is not my day job, I write in the evenings once I get in from work and have put my daughter to bed!

Believe me, combining writing this site with having a career and a young child I’d be lying if I said there haven't been times when I thought ‘why am I doing this’? (And that’s before I think about how much it costs to keep the site running).

What spurs me on?

But then I think about the thousands of people who follow what I'm doing and that spurs me on. I still believe that no matter how much you earn your finances are just as important as the next person’s. That's why I try and help as many people as I can for FREE. I am determined to prove that the world of finance doesn't have to be based on greed and profit

I need your help

So I hope I am making a difference and you all enjoy reading Money to the Masses. What the site has achieved in the past two years has been amazing but I still need your help to spread the word. Please recommend to as many people as possible. It will take you a second to make a recommendation, using the share menu-bar, but by spreading the word you are not only helping me to help others but also giving me a nod of appreciation for what I am doing.

Best Wishes
