Vowing to arm individuals with ample know-how on financial affairs, Ted Bauman acquired the necessary knowledge to become a financial advisor. Though Ted Bauman is an American-bred entrepreneur, he relocated to South Africa as a young adult to reap the spoils of travel. During his time in South Africa, Bauman carried out his college career, earning a degree from the University of Cape Town. Bauman felt such a profound connection to his new home that he decided to begin entrepreneurial journey while on foreign grounds. Some of the roles he assumed during his 25-year career in South Africa included consultation manager, fund manager, and nonprofit sector executive.
Bauman’s background in navigating international undertakings prompted him to take a job as a consultant for the United Nations. While Bauman’s time as a consultant proved rewarding, his ambition was running on fumes. In the hopes of reviving his tenacious spirit, Bauman pursued the same line of work his father was once involved in, financial writing. Ted Bauman’s genius for writing and financial expertise enabled him to thrive in this domain, subsequently leading to the creation of The Bauman Letter, a wildly popular newsletter centered around securing wealth.
This newsletter garnered such positive attention that Bauman created Smart Money, a weekly stock trading service. With his pioneering spirit in full effect, Bauman was well on his way to becoming an entrepreneur of great success. Bauman ascribes much of his prosperity to the information he gathered in South Africa as a budding businessman. Though Bauman is a seasoned financial advisor, he finds that he often grapples with global economic issues. The reason for that is because he’s not versed in government regulation. Fortunately, Bauman continually strives to hone his craft, ensuring that he’ll eventually become schooled in government affairs. As far as the future goes, Ted Bauman is committed to furthering his career as a financial writer.
