Marco den Ouden is a 30 year veteran of Global Television in British Columbia including 15 years as a news editor. Since 1998 he has been a writer on investing, first for New York based About.com and later with his own website, The Break Out Report (breakoutreport.com). He is the author of The 50 Best Science & Technology Stocks for Canadians (Wiley 2003). Noted investment writer and mutual fund manager Pat McKeough said of the book, “Marco has done a great job of singling out potential winners in this volatile, pitfall-riddled market segment. To top things off, the book is an easy and enjoyable read.”
I, Erin Shaw, am the Queen of Frugality! Tell me something you want and I’ll help you get it cheaper or help you realize you don’t need it at all. I graduated from the University of Alberta in 2003 with a degree in sociology and classics and hardly any student loans. I’ve been writing for Rich By Thirty for three years now and what interested me about the project in the first place was the opportunity to help teach financial responsibility to teens and young adults. Not enough time is spent educating the young about the realities of day-to-day fiscal life and I was happy to help change that. When I get a million dollars in savings, I’m just going to breathe a sigh of relief and collapse!
