If you’re new to managing your money and words like budgeting and investing makes you freak out – then you need to read my eBook! I have included chapters on all major money things such as retirement, risk management/insurance, investing and even dying!

Hey! I'm the Local!

Hello everyone, I am the Local! And don’t let the name deceive you. I have my coffee – and many of them daily. I spend money on the things that matter to me. And if it doesn’t matter, then I don’t spend money on it. 

I quit my job in 2020, during lockdown to work for myself. In my fulltime hustle, I help small businesses and startups with consulting, mobile and web apps and simplifying their complicated journeys. I also write technical posts about small business and code on my business blog.

I have been Frugal for a few years and grow with every blog post written. I do collaborate with brands to tell a story to my followers and subscribers – one of education, growing and becoming more than what they were yesterday.

I have been investing in property for more than 10 years, blogging for 2+ years and am married to the most awesome Mrs Frugal.

Start and run that small business​

Starting a small business can be daunting – especially in these times. It’s also challenging when you have cash flow issues, don’t know a lot about money management or how to make it easier to run your business day to day. You will find a wealth of articles about self employment, bootstrapping your business and hustling!
