I first heard about Andrew Hallom from The Wealthy Canadian (awesome Canadian PF blog).
He is set to publish a new personal finance book, called Millionaire Teacher in September 21, 2011. At the moment he is teaching high school English at Singapore American School. He will be taking the next school year off to promote his book and spread financial awareness.
Most people wouldn’t expect a school teacher to amass a million-dollar investment account. But Andrew Hallam did it, long before the typical retirement age. And he wants to show you how. With lively humor and the simple clarity you’d expect from a gifted educator, he demonstrates in Millionaire Teacher how average people can build wealth in the stock market by shunning the investment products peddled by most financial advisors and avoiding the get-rich-quicker products concocted by an ever widening, self-serving industry.
Using low cost index funds, coupled with a philosophy in line with Warren Buffett’s, he guides readers to understand how the stock and bond markets really work, arming readers with a psychological advantage when markets fall. Readers will learn that young investors should hope for stock market crashes if they want to grow rich. Millionaire Teacher shows how you can spend just 60 minutes a year on your investments, never open a financial paper, and avoid investment news, while leaving most professional investors in the dust.
The number 1 lesson he teaches is:
[highlight]If you want to get rich, you have to live below your means.[/highlight]
It sounds like an interesting premise, his blog is located at http://andrewhallam.com/
