When it comes to finding your passion in life I believe you never really do. I think the whole idea of “finding your passion,” is wrong. You should enjoy the journey, savour each failure and each success and grow as a person. Nothing is more important than growing as a person, it is what makes us human. Trying new things can show us a world of new ideas and things we never knew we could do. This time last year I did not even own a single domain name, look at me now. So next time you are staring blankly at something or don’t know what you want to do for the next year, just pick up something and have a go. You will not regret it.
I have hundreds of passions, from MMA to coding to olympic weight lifting. I can code in three different languages, build websites and regularly enjoy logo design. Trifty.co is my project to try and further my presence on the internet, further my CV while also helping those out there looking to get the best value for their money.
People often say to me “Nat, what is your dream?” I tell them I want to wake up tomorrow with no responsibilities. That is a lie. I want to have enough money to travel the world and do what I want to further myself as a person, I want to travel through the Amazon and experience the world first hand.
I want to better the world and further our understanding of ourselves and those around us. I also never want to have to work for someone else. That seems like a lot of work and there is only twenty four hours in the day, I better get to work.
My ideas start here, with Trifty.co my first major venture into the product and consumer review world. Trifty.co was the brain child of some reading on forums and several hundred uninformed Amazon purchases. Countless times I have gone onto Google and searched for “Best Blazer,” or “Best Cooking Mittens” and been met by some useless affiliate site full up of spun or unreadable content and useless impersonal product reviews.
I decided to make a change, I set out to purchase every single product that has a decent rating in every single niche and write up a comprehensive review. I set out on this task alone, and I did not manage. Turns out it takes a lot of money to buy 20 waffle makers and work out seven or eight for a list. I was not discouraged, I set out to get funding. For those of you who do not know me, I am very big on Twitter and Facebook marketing. I set out to find investors. I went hard, I went really hard and I found 413 investors and raised hundreds of thousands of dollars in investment.
And so this is where our journey starts, on the 24th of June 2016. The beginning of my journey. At first we will be a small team of just 3 writers, but soon we will expand and grow in size to a larger team and eventually we will get an office. There is no “if”, we will work until we get there.
If you would like to contact me here are the best ways to do so. I look forward to hearing from you!
