Who’s Tim?

Welcome to the home of hisnameistim.com. This is a website is dedicated to real life experiences from everything to dealing with money, being a student, traveling the world and a whole load of other exciting stuff!

Before I go any further, let me tell you a little about myself and my background, and explain how this website got started.

About Me

I am Tim Spafford, and I’m currently studying in the thriving and cultural capital city of London, in the UK. My degree is in Finance, and I hope to one day begin my very own business consultancy company. I’m still not too sure whether to make the jump into the industry after finishing my degree, or whether to continue with my masters and then Ph.D? But, I guess only time will tell!

I have always had an interest in numbers and how businesses work from the inside out, and this was why I decided to apply to study finance at University level. As a child, I watched as my parents worked in two entirely different environments and then, as I entered my teenage years, made the decision to combine their many skills and expertise and set up their very own business together.

At this point, I was already studying business and finance at school and applying to so the same subjects at college, so my parents thought it would be a great idea to bring me into their business. They allowed me to work on their accounts for them and other small business matters.

It was because of this belief in me to allow me access to such an essential element of their business, that I think encouraged a sense of pride in myself. It also helped me realize that this was really what I wanted to do with my life. Ultimately, this work experience greatly helped my Uni application for a finance degree!

Mixing Finance with The Internet to Create A Blog

However, a few months into my degree, I also realized that I had two passions, finance, and the internet. It then occurred to me that I could possibly make a living after university by combining the two. After all, economics and the online world pretty much go hand in hand these days, I think!

Along with his realization came the idea to begin blogging about my time at Uni, alongside my chosen course. I was signed up to many blogs, all which were either finance or technology related, but I noticed I could never quite find one that covered both subjects. It was also at this point that I struggled to find such blogs aimed at Uni students. Sure, some blogs talked about us students, but not to us directly, and they just didn’t get us or our current journey.

I then began to promote my blog over campus, marketing it in a way that would not only drive like-minded students to it but, at the same time, give them a dedicated area that covered the topics and subjects that were relevant to them and offered them help through the continuing education route.

Word of the blog soon spread and before I knew it, I was receiving hits from Uni students both past and present, and many others from as far as the other side of the world!
