Ted Bauman emigrated to South Africa from the United States as a young man and got to work by serving in the nonprofit sector in the region. He studied at the University of Cape Town and earned a degree in history as well as economics while there. Bauman put his skills to work by serving different charitable organizations in South Africa, and one of these was Slum Dwellers Internationals. While working with the nonprofit, he was about to help millions of people from all around the world. Bauman’s expertise as a fund manager is what he offered to nonprofits in South Africa, and he also served in a variety of other executive positions.
Ted Bauman now works with Banyan Hill Publishing and has moved back to the United States. He is the editor of a spread of newsletters including Alpha Stock Alert, The Bauman Letter, and Plan B Club. Bauman works with beginner investors and seasoned investors, alike, in order to help them protect their assets, keep their privacy, and invest their money using low-risk investment strategies. As a writer, he has found that a lot of his job revolves around making boring topics more fun to read about. He draws on real life examples to connect with his readers and has been able to do extremely well in this venture.
Ted Bauman has admitted that if he could start all over again he would focus more on making the most of his time every day. He feels like he would have benefited from this very early in life and believes he would have been much more productive if he could have had better time management habits early on. He has learned that he gets his best work done during the earlier hours of the day and does everything he can to ensure that his schedule is open during that time. Ted Bauman also feels that learning more about the technical side of economics would have benefited him early on. For him, this has nothing to do with how it would help him to understand economics, but it would allow him to be able to communicate better with those who are more technical-minded.
