What is this about? So most of you know I do monthly cash give-aways (on Instagram and YouTube). This will be my 7th $500 give-away! We held a vote a while back on my Instagram page, and the VAST majority of you wanted the $500 split between 5 winners; rather than the full $500 pot […]
About Tim Kim
My Professional Background: I’m a VP at a mid-sized company based out of Orange County, California. 5 branches and 70 employees. I moonlight as a business consultant, personal trainer, blogger, and success coach. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration, with an emphasis in Management, from Biola University. I’m also a certified personal trainer and licensed corrective exercise specialist through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM). My Personal Background: First and foremost I’m a follower of Jesus Christ. I’m also a Korean American immigrant. I was born in South Korea, and grew up in post-communist Hungary, in eastern Europe. Communism fell there in 1989 (soviet troops left Hungary by 1991). That same year, when I was 5, my parents moved our family from Korea to Hungary in order to do local missions work. I briefly moved to California during my elementary school years, but moved back to Hungary and stayed there from middle school through high school. Upon graduating, I immigrated back to California and recently became a US citizen. I’m married to a wonderful woman of God, Grace Kim, and have an annoying (real talk) but lovely son, Josiah Kim. My Passion: I love to teach, share, and inspire. The areas that I genuinely enjoy developing ,and talking about, are: finance, investing, career, fitness, faith, and life. I guess you could say that encompasses just about everything. And I’d probably say you’re right! Please take a moment to check out my free content on my social media platforms, and on this blog. I’m most active on Instagram, so connect with me there (@timothyskim)!
So I gave my reasoning, in a previous post, for why I believe the US stock market will continue to do extremely well going forward: Previous Post: Dow 50,000 Within 10 Years But I like to hedge my bets by being globally diversified. It’s also one of the reasons why I did so well this […]
We hear it in the news quite often these days: “The stock market is at “all time highs!! Move to cash!!” But have you ever thought about exactly how often the market’s at “all time highs?” Maybe it’s not that uncommon. Since 1950 to now, roughly 1 out of every 15 days the market was […]

Ok, so this is embarrassing to admit. And even more embarrassing to display to the world. But there’s no point in running away from the truth. I need to face reality. Here’s what happened. I gained a whopping 47lbs in the last 6 months!!! Not sure how that’s even possible, but it happened. Very embarrassing, […]
When you contribute to your 401K, your IRA, or just buying individual stocks through your brokerage, have you ever wondered where the money went? Most people incorrectly assume that the money goes to the company. So for example, if you buy $1000 of apple stock, the $1000 goes to Apple. Well, this isn’t typically the […]
I think it’s healthy to ponder about stuff like this from time to time, because it puts things into perspective. We recently landed a probe on a comet. Here’s its’ size compared to Los Angeles: This is earth. Our home. Earth is super small. We can fit 6 earths inside just the width of Saturn’s […]
Everyone seems to be talking about Bitcoin these days. I recently read an article about an 18-year old high school dropout who became a Bitcoin millionaire. So it’s no surprise that people are taking notice! What is Bitcoin? Bitcoin is a digital currency (cryptocurrency) that does not require a central authority (i.e. governments, banks, or […]
So over the weekend I went by the Tesla dealership on a whim. On a whim! If you know me, you’d know that this is very unlike me. – First of all, I’m fairly frugal. I used to be SUPER frugal, but I’ve moderated over the years. – Secondly, I’m not a big car guy. […]
