He was born in the U.S. and, after completing high school, emigrated to South Africa. He studies history and economics at the University of Cape Town. He remained in South Africa after graduating, serving as a fund manager at organizations such as Slum Dwellers International which builds low-income housing.
Later on, he started working as a consultant to governments and the U.N. This professional experience led to Ted Bauman learning about the ways that politics and economic policies really influence a society. After 25 years of having been out of the United States, he returned in 2008. He had accepted a postion of being the director of international programs.

He says that throughout his career has wanted to help people get their finances together. He has been able to achieve his dreams and wants to help others do the same. Another thing he wants to help people with is protecting their rights against the intrusions of government and big corporations, something that matters more today than ever.
Ted Bauman says that early in his career he wasn’t the best when it came to time management, to put it lightly. He was working with low-income families and helping to build them housing. He also developed a financial model that he taught to people so they could get the most out of every dollar. He learned that he had to do better at setting boundaries and eventually letting people and communities make do without someone guiding their choices.
