About me

Hello. I’m Lizelle and I have no intention to retire from a working life. Only from my corporate life. I’ve been down many paths over the past 25 years: actuarial technician; investment performance analyst; product manager; hedge fund manager; client experience designer; finance forum owner; communication specialist; coffee stall owner; and Nia teacher (much fun). And I've been on a few sabbaticals, being a strong believer in proper breaks. I’ve been a salaried worker and a freelancer, and definitely prefer the latter. So, my next goal is to up-skill, cross-skill, invest in how I see my future self and save up some reserves, so I can return to the freedom of flexible work – for good. To me, financial freedom is a process; it's not an absolute destination.

I’m probably more than halfway to never having to work again (imagine if work was optional), but the future may hold as many detours as the past, and I don’t expect the rest of the road to look anything like the N1. Go Freedom is where I share what I’ve discovered so far.
