Since its beginnings, this website has grown to also include valuable information for business owners and entrepreneurs. I provide my own insight from firsthand experience, along with contributions from trusted peers.

About Stuart Ritchie
Most of my professional career was spent in the finance industry. I worked for many years and earned good money, but had no control over my life. Wanting to regain that control and go it alone, I also ran my own property business. But the stresses of staff, cashflow and huge borrowings made it an unenjoyable experience, to say the least!
In July 2007 I was introduced to a simple, proven business system called Utility Warehouse. I worked only a few hours per week, building a passive income (QUIP – Quick Income Plan – didn’t exist when I started!) and reducing my working hours over time.
I’m a big family man, so this allowed me to spend more time with my partner and children, which was and still is my top priority. After a couple of years with this part-time effort, I had created a still-growing passive income that surpassed anything I had previously earned.
I finally managed to leave the commuter lifestyle and effectively ‘retire’ at the age of 38.
I am looking for motivated, switched-on people and business owners who are serious about building a new income stream.
Outside of work, I have a busy family life. My fiancée, Victoria, and kids take up most of my time! I play golf (badly) and enjoy warm holidays with a good beach. I have a great balance in life, spending plenty of time at school events, choosing when I work and when I play.
