About the Blog
The name LibertyLifeTrail combines 3 concepts which are the fundamental backbone of the theme:
- Liberty – as defined by it’s basic definitions is the concept of being free. More importantly however, this represents the understanding of personal responsibility and respect of property which come along with the concept of freedom.
- Life – is another concept emphasized in the blog with posts that try to show all the good there is in the world and living life to the fullest. At a time when knowing the truth about the Economics and Politics around us can make it seem like there is no hope, just remember that people have thought that way for thousands of years and ‘Life’ does go on so make the most of it. The ‘Travel’ category will be the centerpiece of this small getaway.
- Trail – refers to the guide that the articles will provide. Everyone should think for themselves. This blog is not intended to create die hard followers of ideas and opinions presented. One of the focuses is to provide as much information as possible for a person to make up their own ‘educated’ mind. Very often when the ‘Main Stream Media’ is only showing you one side of the story, we will provide links to additional sources that will explain the other side since there are always multiple sides to every story.
The general idea however is for the readers of the blog to become more independent and look to themselves for solutions and not depend on others. There will be tons of resources posted that will direct you to alternative (and most importantly ‘free’) websites that will help you get there. The internet is an amazing tool, which now resides at your fingertips at all times yet most use it as a time wasting machine. Hopefully the ideas raised here along with links to knowledge centers will be a great benefit to all.
There is a reason for every section even when they look out of place like Health & Fitness. But the concept is always the same, how can you be truly free & independent if you have to constantly rely on a Government controlled health care system and are you really in control of your finances when everything you do runs through a Government approved banking system. Understanding the concept of Bitcoin (Crypto-Currency in general) will go a long way in today’s fast moving technological world and help you walk along the trail of financial independence.
Other sections like Travel will look to do more than present interesting places from around the world. It will do something that is hard to find on other blogs, by not only suggesting great places, but how to see them in the most efficient way. If you only have 3 days to see a Caribbean island how can you make the most of it down to the bus you might want to take to see the sites. And don’t forget about the Educational section that will go into depth and link to great resources that will explain the concepts covered in the posts with much more detail.
Short Bio (Used for Speaker Profiles):
Tone has worked on Wall Street for almost 10 years starting as a Risk Analyst at Bear Stearns and later becoming a VP at JP Morgan Chase in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis. His expertise is in Economic Trends, Trading and Risk Analysis. Ever since getting involved in the Crypto Currency ecosystem in early 2013, he has been very active in spreading the relevance and importance of this technology as it helps promote economic freedom. Tone was recently featured in a Bitcoin Documentary – Magic Money. He was formerly Head of Research at BraveNewCoin after previously writing about trading and economics at CoinTelegraph. Tone is now an independent content creator at LibertyLifeTrail focused on sound economics, privacy, free-thinking and adventurous travel. Tone holds a Masters Degree in Financial Engineering from Florida State University along with Bachelor Degrees in Mathematics and Geology.
After studying Math & Geology in undergraduate school it only took about a year as a High School teacher in NYC to realize that was not going to be my future. In an attempt to do something different, an MS in Financial Engineering set me on the path to working at Bear Stearns where I had a front row seat watching its collapse in the 2008 crash. The transition to JP Morgan went fairly smooth for our unit and though the stay at JPM was not long, making VP at that company was accomplished fairly quickly. Since then I have worked for two other financial institutions centered around the risk industry.
Somewhere in this world of Wall Street handshakes, lawsuits and working around other peoples money, there comes a time to step back and see it for what it is. All we do is move IOU’s around the globe and most people (even the ones that work in finance) never consider the global economic consequences. Not everyone can be an entrepreneur at a young age but the moment you have the chance you have to take it. The ideas that will be discussed here hopefully will not only help you get on the trail to financial liberty, but also help me along my way to investing in businesses, ideas and most importantly, the right people.
