Welcome to my blog about my investment history and journey throughout the years in Australia.

My name is Caleb, a civil engineering graduate living in South Australia and am in my mid-20’s. My future goals are to be one day Financially Independent, which means not relying on my super or the government pension to live the rest of my life. Oh, and to retire as early as possible!

My goal is to buy and hold for the long term period, hence the name of the website. I plan to do this by smart investments in micro, small and sometimes even up to the large cap securities offered in the ASX. There is always a bargain just waiting around the corner. You just have to know when to strike.

I am a huge believer in only spending what you have, that means no credit cards unless extremely necessary. No wasting money on excessive amounts of alcohol or eating food out. I definitely like to live well below my means.

I have only just started the investment game, I have only been trading since October 2016. I am in no way experienced in this, but I am learning and learning fast.

I would like you to take this journey with me, follow my posts, comment on my content and let me know if you are in a similar situation. I love talking to people in similar situations as I am.

All the best,
