Hi- I'm Tim. I help Financial DIYers own their money and future.

Tim Ellis Face

Over the last 15 years, I've hit some major life milestones—marriage, kids, property investments, relocation, even dealing with redundancy.

Each stage taught me unique financial lessons that I thought were worth sharing.

Inspired by the birth of my second child, I decided to not just jot these lessons down for my family, but also to share them publicly through a simple website I can point people to in case they need some guidance.

My mission? To make the essential elements of personal finance and investing clear, simple, and actionable.

From notes to newsletters

What began as a few notes for my kids turned into this site —a resource the internet didn't know it needed but quickly embraced.

Over time, I expanded my focus to include things I was deeply engrossed in—like investing in ETFs, testing new investment strategies, finding the ideal cash flow system and planning for a flexible retirement (whenever that may be).

Now, I run DadInvestor as a one-man show, helping fellow Financial DIYers hone their personal finance and investing skills.

With my weekly newsletter and 1:1 coaching service, I aim to guide you toward making confident money moves for lasting financial freedom.

I write about topics to help you own your money and financial future.

  1. G’day Tim, awesome site mate. One of my motivations for the pursuit of FIRE is to be an awesome Dad, so its cool to see you paving the way and loving that second childhood! Cheers mate

    • Thanks mate. Appreciate it. Parenting is a challenge but if you don’t have money worries in your way it’s so much easier to enjoy.
