Typically, Ted Bauman begins his day in the same fashion – beginning by dropping his daughter off at school, before returning home to initiate his tasks at his basement office. Finding that he works most efficiently in the morning, he normally begins immediately, staying busy until about 5:00 pm each day. He attempts to complete his most difficult tasks first, being that it is the most productive period for him, and when not writing, spends a large portion of time researching, both mainstream and obscure outlets, for information that will be the most beneficial to his audience. Being that connecting with his audience is such an integral part of his job, considering the fact that his information directly influences their financial success and overall security, he has to utilize the full array of his narrative skills to bring mundane topics to life, while also providing real-world examples.
As he is constantly attempting to stay abreast of the latest financial and economic trends around the world, he has recently noticed a trend amongst his readership – they are now questioning many longstanding traditions regarding the public’s relationship with large corporate entities, as well as the government. He believes that many of the issues and contradictions that have come about are the result of the lack of government regulation regarding the free capital movement. While he admits that he has never been a proponent of any type of government regulation, he finds it incredibly exciting that ordinary people are beginning to question traditional practices, while also seeking new and effective solutions.
