Who is Jay Sharma
I am Jay Sharma, owner, and author at onemoremillion.com. A tech geek turned into an entrepreneur.
I am keenly passionate about personal finance and have been helping people learn personal finance. This is my first attempt to start a personal finance blog and hope to learn along the way.
During the subprime crisis, I lost my job and learned about the FIRE movement. Following that, I started my journey to achieve Financial Independence.
Since then, my goals and plans have shifted quite a bit. Learn about my experience and how my goals have shifted over time in my 2019 recap post. Also, note that I am more focused on financial independence more than early retirement.
Unlike many other popular FIRE blogs, I wouldn’t recommend you to become a penny pincher. I would rather you be mindful of what you spend and how you want to live.
You can read about how I got started on a financial freedom journey.
What is OneMoreMillion Blog?
This blog utilizes my personal life lessons to create stories to share with my readers.
I share guides about money, product reviews, blogging, and other passive income streams.
I will share my personal financial goals and progress that I make towards them so you can provide me feedback and we can help each other in our journeys towards FIRE.
Why did I start OneMoreMillion?
Let’s start with the name OneMoreMillion. I heard people saying – “if I had I would be rich” and I thought there is a good tone to saying one more million and hence the name.
I was determined to set up passive income streams to replace my paycheck. I wanted to focus on building the life that I always dreamt of. A few years back my journey to FIRE (Financial Independence Retire Early) started by reading Rich Dad, Poor Dad and 4-Hour work week. Reading these books served two purposes for me:
- Gave me a mission in life to generate passive income and get rid of the paycheck slavery
- Ignited my thought process
There are hundreds of thousands of advice available online on how to establish passive income streams but most of them are scams that ask you to buy something in return of a get rich quick promise.
My goal with this site is to share my learnings without pushing any fake products down your throat. I will also warn you – Establishing an online business and generating passive income is not easy and takes a lot of hard work and commitment.
