LifeUpswing is on a mission to bring financial independence and security to the masses. With a combination of side hustling, money management, and smart investments; we believe everyone can be wealthier and happier.
Hey there! I’m Chris Panteli, and I started LifeUpswing in 2020 after being diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at the ripe old age of 33! I had also recently split with my fiance of 7 years and recognized a need to diversify my income away from purely my bricks-and-mortar business.
In 2021, with my new business partner Nick, we decided to go full-throttle on the LifeUpswing brand. And we have since reached nearly 1million readers in that time, and have been featured on The New York Times, Forbes, Go Banking Rates, Care, CreditCards.com, Enterprise League, Business Pundit, Yahoo Finance, The Savvy Couple, Dollarsprout, Frugal Fortunes, MSN Money, Best Company, CEO Blog Nation, Thrive Global, Simply Hatch, and many other large online publications.
