About Money World Basics

Hello, and welcome to my personal finance blog! My name is Nikki Kirimi.

My goal is to inspire you to take charge of your finances, achieve financial independence, and live life on your own terms.

Depending on where you come from, speaking about money or wealth may be a welcome topic or a frowned upon subject. But despite the different views on money, we all need it for our everyday living.

I have come to appreciate that money is simply a resource to help you meet needs and achieve various goals that make life more meaningful. It gives you choices to do the things that inspire you, and it allows you the opportunities to spend more time with the people you love.

I have a few financial credentials (MBA, CPA, CMA, and a current FRM Level 2 Candidate). But in spite of this education, I realized that my academic knowledge was mainly corporate-focused and many aspects of personal finance were still a mystery to me.

Personal finance is, unfortunately, not usually taught in schools. I have made it my mission to learn as much personal finance as possible and share my findings on this website. I hope that you find some inspiration to take control of your finances and live the life of your dreams.

I am so glad you are here!

My best wishes,
