Meet The Founder
Currently, Money Sprout is a one-man show. It is run by myself, James Beattie. I have been obsessed with personal finance for as long as I can remember and made my first-ever investment not long after I turned 18.
You can see below my first ever £200 investment which was a lot of money at the time. Invested in a good old-fashioned index fund.
From an early age, I was interested in making money and started making some significant income online when I was still in school through freelancing. This was the first source of income to fund my portfolio. Since then I have consistently invested in my portfolio every single month.
In 2019 I pulled out the £30,000 or so I had amassed to put a deposit on my first house and since then have managed to get my portfolio back up to £88,000 as of today.
In between starting leaving school and today I have done quite a bit. For the first year after school, I worked at PwC a BIG 4 accounting firm where I worked in due diligence. This is where I got my first taste for business and knew I needed to start something myself.
While working I started dropshipping which allowed me to eventually leave my job.
Since then I have run e-commerce stores, created an Advertising training program with over 1000 students and most recently built and sold a streaming education website.
You can learn more about building this brand on a podcast I did with Niche Pursuits:
Selling this blog was my first 6 Figure Asset sale and the next project I wanted to work on was this right here. Over the next couple of years, I plan to grow Money Sprout into a leading Personal Finance blog in the UK.
I am starting small with just myself but hopefully, within a few months, we can start to expand our team, and look forward to doing so!
Other than running this blog I am an avid runner, currently training for a sub-3 marathon!
