Paulo Lucardi had a serious interest in investing and personal finance from a young age.
At fourteen, he spent hours at the library on the free computers researching everything he could relating to credit, investing, interest, compound interest, and last but not least: retirement.
He was raised by a single mother who worked two jobs just so that they could skate by.
They had no savings, so from a young age, he worked under the table to help his mother.
Paulo sat down with her to talk about retirement and preparing for it after facing the grim reality that this level of burning herself out at 70 hours a week wouldn’t lead to prosperity.
Together, they spent the time to learn the ropes, and Paulo used his money to invest in the stock market, an index fund, and retirement to ensure his mother would have the security blanket she needed.
She’s been living off of that retirement plan for the last six years, with decades worth of money piled up that’s still earning her passive income.
At 37, Paulo wants to educate the public-at-large about investing for the future, and making your own money work for you instead of the other way around.
Frugal and financially fit, he plans to follow in the footsteps of his mentors and idols to spread knowledge about personal finance and wealth building.
