About This Site
Lifelong Financial Security is dedicated to empowering people to make the wealth they need in the time they have.
I grew up in a world where most people were not taught how to manage their money. And given we started being our own money managers since the first time our parents handed us a dollar (or a quarter in my case), this is a tremendous problem.
This lack of training led me to make many mistakes concerning money over the years… mistakes maybe I can help you avoid.
Hello, my name is Edward Lomax, creator of the Lifelong Financial Security site.
As the name of the site suggests, I am on a quest for lifelong financial security. And while my path towards the goal of financial security might not seem typical, I do think what I have learned along the way can help anyone with the desire to enjoy financial independence, freedom and security.
A little about me…
I was born in Washington D.C. and grew up in Maryland. And while my life might seem very “normal” as I grew up, I always knew I wanted to do things a little differently.
Growing up, I felt I was on a conveyor belt. I felt the next step of my life was predetermined and I was just being pushed along to the next thing that was “expected” of me.
I went to school, got good grades, participated in sports and behaved myself (for the most part). I went to a good university and got a degree. Next step… get a job, marry, have kids, buy a house, get a dog, etc.
But finally that feeling of wanting to do things differently manifested itself. I resisted getting a job. As a matter of fact, I have never even had a resume. I started bartending and working in restaurants where I would start work when the “normal” people were getting off.
While working one of my bartending jobs, I met someone who became a good friend. And in one of those late night sessions that goes hand in hand with bartending, I agreed to join him on a trip to his native country of Chile.
Long story short, on that trip to Chile I fell in love with his cousin and she became my wife a few years later. Due to a family illness, we decided to stay in Chile and build a life there.
That was over 20 years ago.
As you might imagine, starting a life in a new country can be challenging. But I told you, I always wanted to do things differently. And believe me, this was different.
One of the best things about starting a life in a new country is it forces you to think outside of the box. That conveyor belt I thought I was on that pushed me to the next “expected” stage of life was turned off. I was definitely not on the “normal” path now… and I had to figure out for myself what I wanted out of life and how I was going to get it.
Luckily, the Internet came along and I decided this was the opportunity for me. I now do all my income generating activities on the Internet. And honestly, if the Internet never came along, I have no idea what I would be doing today.
I’m over 50 years old now, and I understand taking a different path is not all that bad. As a matter of fact, I believe taking a different path is what allowed me to have a better financial future than I would have otherwise achieved.
