Hi there and welcome to my personal lifestyle, health and finance blog. I created this blog to be able to spread positive, informative & inspirational messages for those of us in the “middle-aged” stage of our lives.
My name is Carlo & I am currently living in New York raising two beautiful daughters with my beautiful wife. My day job is being a “finance guy”, and I have been at it for over 23 years. I’m also a photographer, striving minimalist & desperately trying health buff.
I am what most people would call “a middle-aged man” who’s heard it from just about everyone, including those closest to me, that “It’s all down hill from here!” I’ve even been told that starting this blog is my way of dealing with my “midlife crisis“. But I actually see it as a “midlife opportunity”. We’ve gotten to this point in our lives thru grit, determination and hard work. So I thought to myself, why should I accept this commonly held mindset of being downhill?
The way I see it… these times, the last half, are the best times of our lives. Think about it. At this stage, we have pretty much figured things out. So why would we start winding down? I say we rev up our engines and get ready for the next chapter. There are no rules that say only the millennial generation are allowed to start blogs. Even if there was, it wouldn’t stop me. I may be behind the learning curve when it comes to understanding the technology and terminologies I need to know in order to do this, but I’ve got a limitless supply of energy, curiosity and tenacity.
And so this is my purpose for this blog. I’d like to help inspire and be inspired by people who continue to go for it regardless of our age. It truly is just a number! I will share what’s worked for me over the years and definitely learn from those smarter than myself. I also realize that while we’ve figured out a lot of things, we haven’t figured it all out. So my goal for this blog is to help others learn more in the areas of health, money and a whole lot more.
I look forward to this journey, and I hope you will join me.
