Mommy Jhy discussing mutual funds investments

I am an entrepreneur. I’m a co-founder of two start-up companies, Mobcly and JARS. Start-up companies mean they don’t earn profits… yet.

I am an investor. I’m invested in stocks, mutual funds, real estate, a gasoline station and a couple of farms. No, I don’t plan to venture neither in forex or bitcoin.

  1. Nice to meet you! I am living the expat life as well. However I live in Granada, Spain. I love all that you do. Running several Facebook groups must be cool and also time-consuming.
