About Mark

Welcome to Starts From The Bottom!

I’m Mark, founder of this website.

So, let’s get started about ME!

I’m Mark, a 20-year-old high school graduate from Hong Kong.

Same as most of the traditional students in Hong Kong, I grew up and studied hard for one reason, to find a job and then working 9-5 until 65.

However, as I grew up, I started wondering if this the lifestyle I desire for the rest of my life? Isn’t this just SURVIVING but not LIVING our lives?

No kidding, I have a whole bunch of BUCKET LIST that I need to do before I die. On the day of my 20th birthday, I told myself it’s time to cross them off one by one. I don’t want REGRETTING those things I haven’t done when I die, that I haven’t lived a life true to myself.

“If you don’t find a way to make money while you sleep, you will work until you die.” Warren Buffett.

I want to be FREE!!!

2 months ago, I read the most famous self-help book, “Rich Dad Poor Dad”, accidentally. That’s when I first came across the terms ‘FINANCIAL FREEDOM’ and ‘PASSIVE INCOME’. It opened my mind. I realized that working 9-5 until 65 was never my plan for the future. My dream is to achieve financial freedom, and then travel all over the globe, enjoy sunsets from different cities, make new friends from a different culture… To truly know who I am.

Therefore, I QUIT the Diploma program I was studying. Instead, I started my journey to achieve financial freedom. I gave myself a deadline, 10 YEARS. I now believe that ‘TIME’ is the greatest cost in our lives. Studying for 4 more years and investing thousands, just to become a University graduate, it is quite a high-risk investment and the return is relatively low. I would rather work hard right now, learn as much as I need, so I can be ‘FREE’ as soon as possible.

Now I keep learning skills that can generate passive income and knowledge about investing. I’ve never been so enthusiastic about learning for the past 20 years in my life. I can’t wait for the new challenges I’m going to face when I wake up every day!
