Hi, I’m Tyrone Solee, the author of this blog. I am a Mathematics degree holder from Ateneo de Manila University, one of the top universities here in the Philippines.
A lot of us are dreamers. We all want to have a comfortable life, to become a millionaire, and to ultimately achieve financial freedom. This is what this blog is all about – to help you achieve your goals, to escape the rat race and to become successful in life.
I started this blog on Nov. 24, 2008 when I was 25 years old. The domain name “Millionaire Acts” originated when I watched the film “The Secret” which talks about the powerful Law of Attraction. Back then, I wanted to become a millionaire. I wanted to know how a ‘millionaire acts’ so I can be one of them.
As they say, ‘the early bird catches the worm’. In my early quest to financial freedom, I started the habit of saving at the age of 21 when I had my first job after graduation. At the age of 22, I already educated myself about financial literacy and started my first investment in a bond fund.
At a young age of 26, I realized my dream of becoming a millionaire after 4 years and 7 months of employment by living below my means and being frugal, investing in UITFs, and most importantly, paying myself first by using the equation INCOME – SAVINGS = EXPENSES each time I get salary income. This is the right way to save your salary wisely.
On September 4, 2012, I had the chance to get interviewed at ANC’s personal finance TV show “On The Money” on which I told my story how I became a millionaire at the age of 26.

Six months after, the team of Kapuso Mo Jessica Soho invited me again to become a resource person on the segment “Ang Cheap” aired on September 8, 2013.
The video is now available at Youtube and you can watch it below:

On May 21, 2017, I appeared again at Kapuso Mo Jessica Soho on their segment entitled “50 Pesos Challenge”. Replay of the video below:
“Do not save what is left after spending, but spend what is left after saving.”
“If you buy things you do not need, soon you will have to sell things you need.”
On that same year, two months after the Typhoon Ondoy flooded our home, the biggest blessing came when I was able to meet successful bloggers online and eventually ventured into make money online business.
Past is experience, present is experiment. Future is expectation. So better use your experience in your experiment to meet your expectation.
Corporate-wise, my professional background spans servicing of distressed loans and real estate properties; market research and competitive intelligence; investment analysis; financial modeling and data analytics. If you’re interested to view my professional profile, I made one in Linked In here.
In addition, I also look forward to creating a book version of Millionaire Acts so it can reach more people outside of internet, helping them to become more financially literate.
I’m an achiever and a goal-oriented person. Let me share my most favorite quote:
I WILL do today what other people WON’T so that I CAN have tomorrow what other people CAN’T.
The quote above shows the comparison and contrast between will – won’t and can – can’t. In order to become successful, you need to be different and you must stand out from the rest. You need to do the extraordinary and excel from it.
“The man who has made up his mind to win will never say impossible.”
Blogging so far has been the best and greatest thing that happened to me. Millionaire Acts has opened a lot opportunities for me. I met a lot of fellow bloggers. I had several speaking engagements. I had media exposures on TV, newspaper, magazine, and radio. Most of all, I learned how to make money online!

Aside from my current interests on entrepreneurship, money management, finance, and investments, I also had some interests on acting and modeling for some diversion before. And I repeat, that was before.
I enrolled myself in a runway modeling workshop conducted by one of the modeling agencies to improve confidence and boost self-esteem. I was able to join two fashion shows back then. I even joined several acting workshops to hone my skills when it comes to acting. Below is one of my photos back then.
You can view some of my previous modeling pictures, modeling projects, modeling set cards, and a fashion show where I was included here.
-> We organized our first charity event last December 2010.

Thanks for dropping by to my blog. If you have any questions, please feel free to comment. This blog is a collection of all my learnings in my quest to escape the rat race and to achieve financial freedom. I am not a financial guru but I can assure you that whatever I write here, I practice it on my own and “I can walk the talk”.
Why do we need financial freedom?
Watch the short story presentation below:
If I can do it, you can do it too! Just believe in yourself, be determined, equip yourself with the right mindset and discipline. Take it slowly but surely and in no time, you will also become a millionaire someday! Cheers to future millionaires!
As Robert Kiyosaki says:
The main reason people struggle financially is because they have spent years in school but learn nothing about money. The result is that people learn to work for money but never learn to have money work for them.
