About Me

Welcome to My Journey To Wealth website. It has always been my fascination to generate income and build wealth using the vast resources that is available online. This site is my blog or journal of my journey in pursuing various means in hopes of building a decent wealth.

Some background story

My name is Mark and I live in Vancouver, Canada. I am originally from the Philippines and grew up there more than half of my life. My journey, I would say, is quite a “roller coaster ride” because of all that I’ve been through.

The “ride” formally began back when I was in secondary school. Back then, I was privileged to have been mentored by my wonderful professor in Mathematics and over the years our friendship has grown so deep that I greatly treasure and cherish this person even until now. She has poured so much encouragement, passion and wisdom in my life that I am forever grateful to her. This in turn has molded me to truly believe in myself and has become very instrumental in my life journey.

Fast forward to graduating from my post secondary degree, I landed a job in a call center and worked so hard and tried to climb the corporate ladder. Meanwhile, being single with a decent paying job has allowed me to travel around within my home country and see the beauty of different places, islands and tourist destinations in the Philippines.

However, my employment didn’t last very long due to bad experiences from unpleasant bosses.

This then propelled me to leave my hometown and search for greener pasture outside of the country. Being a tech savvy individual, I ended up deciding to move to Singapore and find employment there as this was the IT hub of Asia. I was fortunate enough to have gotten a job in one of the largest financial institution across the globe there in Singapore.

New beginning new horizon

My experience working in a different country and with differing cultures has broadened my horizon and have opened my eyes to the vast opportunity that exists in the world. There’s so much to see, so much to learn, and so much to enjoy in this world, that being completely tied, even somewhat to a point of slavery, to a regular JOB is such a tragedy.

This was when my passion and fascination in expanding myself truly began to grow. I saw that the Internet as one of the avenues that one can utilize to pursue wealth.

Continuing on, in November of 2009, I then migrated to Canada and started with my own family here. Having moved to North America has further opened opportunities for me and since then I’ve been pursuing greener and brighter future for me and my family. The story goes on from here.

Why pursue wealth

Other than it’s human nature to desire the comfortable life, I am also passionate in helping the underprivileged and/or marginalized in the society. That being said, I am not really after the comfortable life or the American dream or the wealthy lifestyle. My journey to pursue wealth is more for the purpose of being able to give more. I guess I can say I’m being like Robin Hood, though not the bandit part of him going around stealing other people’s money or treasures.

I desire to be able to help whether that be within my own backyard or on the other side of the globe, I have a strong desire to help eradicate poverty, slavery, and injustice.

My “roller coaster ride” is my journey to expanding the scope and influence of this one life that I have been given and give back to those who are in need.

I firmly believe in what the Bible says, that when we give it will be given back to us good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over. My pursuit of wealth is not just for my own personal gain but also so that I would be able to give even more.

My purpose

I’ve created this website to share my journey with others and hopefully inspire others in their own journeys in life. I would be writing articles, promoting products or services, blogs and/or journals of my experiences, knowledge and wisdom that I’ve gained over the years here. I do not profess to be a guru or an expert in any respect but rather I am just sharing the road I’ve traveled and am still traveling.

If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.

All the best,

Mark Mark Tarog
