Ted Bauman is a financial newsletter editor for Banyan Hill Publishing. He is a graduate of South Africa’s University of Cape Town where he earned history and economics postgraduate degrees. He spent 25 years in South Africa’ nonprofit sector, mainly filling executive roles at charities that had low-cost housing projects. He returned to the United States and started writing about investment opportunities from an economics standpoint. His goal is to help people make money off their investments by following low-risk strategies that will protect their assets.
He says he spent a number of years when younger working at fast food joints like Burger King and McDonald’s. He also spent time at a gas station. Ted Bauman says that he doesn’t begrudge those years because it taught him things like working hard, being in a working-class place, making ends meet, and dealing with managers complaining about the job he was doing. He says this taught him that in order to have a thriving economy it means paying as attention to the welfare of people in the working-class.
Ted Bauman recently posted an article about how to keep liquid cash safe from things such as thieves and a fire. His first recommendation is to get a home safe that is both waterproof and fireproof. You should store your cash there as well as jewelry. He also recommends getting a safe-deposit box at your bank or credit union so that the stuff you store there is out of sight and yet can be accessed relatively easily.
The Total Wealth Symposium is held on an annual basis. At this event, the financial experts from Banyan Hill Publishing, like Ted Bauman, speak to an audience of attendees about the wealth-building opportunities they currently see as the most lucrative. Last year one of the subjects was cybersecurity and how it pays to invest in the companies that provide this service. Companies are getting hacked all the time anymore and they need to bring in expert cybersecurity companies to lock their systems down and to constantly be on the guard in regards to detecting intrusions as they happen.
