55 SG Financial Blogs that Actually Inspire You to Think Rich and Grow Rich

Singapore Financial Blogs

Have you ever felt that you are alone trying to trim every expenses you can think of so that you have a little more saving?

Or getting enough of financial authority websites making you feel like a dumbass whenever you tired to seek for information.

It’s either plain boring or outright confusing.

At least that’s how I feel about it.

How about the aspired individuals who want to think rich and grow rich?

Saving isn’t enough you know it. You have to make smart financial decisions, from smart budgeting to financial planning, and investment is a must do thing.

The problem is you can’t grow rich without being able to think rich.

So to acquire financial knowledge you either have to stick your butt to the chair and get your eyes running though numerous of plain text from some of the best trading books which either make you fall asleep or confuse you even more, or seek for a financial consultant or pay for a seminar.

bad news


But then, I have a bad news for you.

Most financial advisers and property agents aren’t working for your interest. They facilitate transactions that are best for their commission.

Most investment or wealth building course providers promise to supercharge your financial life by charging an exorbitant fee. But once the course is over. They disappeared. When it doesn’t workout you blame yourself by not following the steps “well” enough, and you never wonder how well others are doing.

Most authorities sites are best describe as your electronic manual book, full of words and instructions but no one reads. You want to know what is best for you, rather than what is best for them for you to know.

Despite all that you still hope that there are some places in the unknown corner of the internet that truly provide genuine information that works on your best interest.

good news

Then I have a little good news for you.

Without holding back further they are the financial bloggers and educators that have been unselfishly sharing free knowledge and offer practical advice to average Singaporean.

They are average working class people like us who face financial issues the same as we do, and by reading their experience and perspective we are able to have a head start in our finances.

They Think Rich and Grow Rich(although, many are in the growing rich phases).

They inspire, they educate and they change people.

I have benefited a lot from them when I stepped out to the working world two years ago, and I wish the same to you as well.

Due to the size of the list I have categorised it into three main group:

“I started this blog as ACCICB and I converse about investing and trading in stocks on a daily basis. My ideas and tips proved to be a winner over many years and I thought of sharing my ideas with the rest of the world.

The nick Googirl Investor was given by ACCICB as I can use Google to find out pretty much anything and everything much faster than anyone we know. However, I am very lazy due to my belief in ABC, thus I tend to blog in bursts of inspiration, although I do try to become inspired at least once a week.”

“The My investment framework is steeped in value-investing doctrine. I do FA, never TA. I do not consider myself a value investor because I hold the term “value investor” in awe and believe I am not in the league of “value investors””.

“My investment journey started towards the end of 2012, when I picked up a copy of Andrew Hallam’s Millionaire Teacher. Andrew Hallam, being an English Teacher, is gifted with the ability to write clearly and concisely, making the topic of investment rather easy to understand. That’s when I finally decided to take action and dive into the exciting world of investment.

Information on index investing in a local context (Singapore) was rather hard to come by back then (actually, it still is right now), which was why I started a blog back in December 2012 to document my journey and share my experiences.

Titled Index Investing In Singapore, it mainly talked about information I’ve come across, things I’ve done, resources I’ve found, and stuff like that. Along the way, people interested in index investing found the blog. Some asked questions, and I answered them when I could. Well, it turns out there were many people just like the “old” me, who were interested in index investing but just didn’t know how to get started..”

“Tom K works hard in his work and personal commitments. But when it comes to wealth creation and generation, Tom K knows that he is no Tom Cruise. Tom K knows that hard work and abilities do not necessarily get recognised at work and translate into higher salaries; and even if they do, unless one earns a high five‐figures monthly salary – Tom K is just an ordinary folk holding a modest job‐ income generated from work alone may not be sufficient for retirement, let alone, financially freedom.

Tom K has decided that he WANTS to be financially free and he knows the motivation of why he wants to become so: to have more time for himself, his families and loves ones, for his passions and for doing more things to benefit the community.”

It’s Time to Start Thinking Rich

You see no one wants to be poor or making silly financial decision, even people who are rich would not want to make financial decision that makes them look silly.

The above are working individuals who are as average as us, getting average paycheck but through good financial literacy and investment knowledge they are able to accumulate a portfolio large enough to achieve financial independence.

Just for a moment imagine having certainty about your future, knowing the path to early retirement or being financially independent, won’t that make you feel a little more motivated working towards your financial goal?

I hope by now you are a little more convinced that growing rich is possible, but before that you have to think rich first i.e increase your financial literacy.

So now don’t keep the above inspirational examples to yourself. Share it to your friends, to your family members or anyone you care about. To inspire them that we don’t need to rely on CPF for retirement and we can achieve it by our own hands.

The path is there, the direction is there. So, just walk towards it.
