From Small Town Dreams to Financial Realities: My Story

I’m N, the face and passion behind MoneyMotion101. My story begins in a small, peaceful town where the pace of life was slow, and the only notable event in recent memory was an unexpected visit from a truck to our town’s sole museum. This incident is a stark representation of my life – unexpected turns and bumps, but each with a story and lesson of its own.

Navigating Uncertain Waters

Fresh out of high school, with stars in my eyes and uncertainty in my steps, I ventured into the world of mechanical engineering. Two years in, I faced the truth – this wasn’t my path. Thus began my overseas adventure in Wales, UK, where I embraced the life of a waiter. Beyond the nuances of taking orders and understanding diverse British accents, I learned life’s most vital lesson: adaptability. The UK introduced me to the world, refined my English, and gave me experiences that shaped my perception of money.

Entrepreneurial Pursuits and Stumbles

Upon returning home, driven by the entrepreneur in me and armed with savings, albeit modest, I launched a brick-and-mortar clothing store. But as with many ventures, success wasn’t instant. Depleted funds and a looming rent spelled the end of that dream.

Yet, in the midst of despair, the constant beacon of hope and guidance was my then-girlfriend, now wife – yay! Recognizing my passion for technology, she ushered me towards web development. This advice was transformative. Relocating to the bustling hub of Cluj-Napoca, I evolved into a senior web developer, collaborating with prestigious UK clients – a full circle from my days in Wales.
