Who am I and what is this blog about

Hello! Thank you so much for having an interest reading my blog. My name is Samuel Poirier. I grew up in the beautiful city of Montreal in Canada and as I start this journey, I am 25 years old with a great future planned in mind. I am a software developer and investor with a huge craving for knowledge and sharing. I have been working hard on the knowledge part and I want to start improving the sharing part in my life. Being a developer, a blog is the most effective way I know to reach people and share some thoughts, skills, and discoveries I made. One thing I would ask you while reading all of this is, stay open-minded. Life is so much easier when we are.

Hopefully, my blog will inspire you to push yourself for a life of constant learning and grow. Everything in life is a matter of perspective. Some people see it as a game of “win or lose”, but I decided to see life as a game of “win or learn”.

Until now, my main passions have been mostly around technology and software development. Recently I’ve encountered a few events that made me open my eyes and getting interested in the world of finances. I started learning more about finance by reading multiple books that completely changed my vision on the future I wanted to go.

Some things that I read completely shocked me and made me realize that most Canadians and Americans are heading to a painful retirement without even knowing it. From what I’ve learned, there are ways that will guarantee me a smooth life ride to a financial freedom at my retirement. I know, you must think I am a bit intense thinking about retirement at 25 years old, but trust me, I wish I had learned all of this at 18.

Feel free to subscribe to my blog to get notifications, I will use this blog a bit as an open notebook for things I find interesting and to note stuff that I want to remember. I always thought, if it interests me, it might interest someone else.

Enjoy the reading!

Sam

As a developer

In this section of the blog, I will share some random tech discoveries mostly around software development and technology. If you are interested about this subject, make sure you check this part occasionally. I will try to post updates whenever I feel they are worth sharing.

To give you the context of where I come from as a developer, I had the chance to grow my developer skills by working at an awesome company named BesLogic Inc. since 2012. I feel blessed to work with every single person in our company. Everyone share the same passions as I do for tech and computer science. I’ve also had the chance to become a shareholder of the company.

If you want to know more about what I do for a living, or even better, if you ever want to hire me or my team just checkout out our business website: https://www.beslogic.com

As an investor

In this section of the blog, I will share a lot of knowledge that I will acquire through my lifetime. In my intro, I mentioned that I am an investor. Here, you will learn that you that you should be to. The sooner the better. The world we live in doesn’t want the average investor to be more than the average. I am here to share what I wish was thought in school.

If you landed here, I can probably assume that you have some interests or questions around the finance world. I would suggest you to take a look at what I strongly believe we should have learned in school:

As a human

This section will be a bit more philosophical. I just want to help others to realize that we have a much bigger impact on our future that we think. Simply by embracing the power of taking actions.
