As a child, my dream was to become a writer. That dream, I was told, would never happen. That’s because when you’re poor, dreams aren’t expected to come true. When your Dad escapes famine, a 10-year labour camp, poverty, and busts his ass to give you this one opportunity to never be poor again, you don’t squander it. Especially on something as frivolous as following your dreams. Dreams, you learn, are only for the privileged.  Fast forward 30 years.  As it turns out, dream really do come true. Even if you weren’t born privileged. After toiling away in the writing […]

Phew, so after the crazy few last few weeks, we finally got some time to sit down and read our e-mails. And now that it’s Friday, you know what that means! Reader case time! Today’s reader isn’t your stereotypical FIRE candidate. He’s only 27 years old, doesn’t have an engineering degree or a 6-figure salary, and is bascially your typical Millennial. Will he be able to retire early? Or will he prove the Boomers right that as Millennials, we’re all doomed? Let’s find out… “Hoping to get some input on my current financial situation. I’m 27 with a college degree. […]

What a couple of weeks this has been in the UK! First, our audiobook recording, then the London movie premiere of Playing with Fire. And to cap it all off, we then went right into Chautauqua in the UK! This is now the 5th Chautauqua we’ve spoken at, and a thought that had crept into our heads was that the magic of Chautauqua might not be as shiny and new the 5th time around. Well, I am happy (and relieved) that fear turned out to be completely misplaced, because Chautauqua is EXACTLY as awesome EVERY SINGLE TIME! The Place First […]

  The past 2 weeks have been the craziest weeks in our lives thus far. If it seems like our posting schedule has been a bit sparse, sorry about that. We’ll go back to our regular posting schedule shortly. Here’s how the craziness played out: Day 1-3: Penguin Audiobook recording in London (with JLCollins reading his Foreward) Day 3: International premier of “Playing with FIRE”  Day 5: Back to the studio to finish audiobook recording (apparently 3 days wasn’t enough) Day 5: Bloomberg TV recording Day 6-13: Chautauqua At one point, Wanderer and I had to split up because we […]

Phew, what a week it’s been. A few days ago we flew into London from Thailand after a brief layover in Norway (a sentence I fully enjoy being able to write), and I hope you’ll forgive our lack of a post last week because I was in a studio recording the audiobook for Quit Like a Millionaire! This has been a bizarre experience to say the least. Never in a million years did I ever think I would be sitting in a recording studio reading my own book, about my own life knowing that it was going to turn into […]

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you may have noticed that the US and China have been getting…a little testy with each other. Dow Dives as Markets React to Trade War with China –CNN, May 13, 2019 Boston Fed President: Tarriffs Have The Potential To Slow Down Economy –CNN Business, May 22, 2019 Dow in Freefall as Terrifying 15 Year US China Trade War Looms Large –CCN, May 23, 2019 Yikes.

This might come as a surprise to some of you, but I wasn’t always a firecracker. In fact, there was a brief period in childhood (which I’m embarrassed now to admit) that I wanted to be a princess. And no, not a fearsome warrior princess who throws fireballs. A Disney princess who sings. I wanted to be the Little Mermaid, dress up in pink frilly dresses, and twirl around the room singing “Part of Your World.” These days, you’re more likely to find me hiking a mountain in cargo pants than twirling in ballgowns. But from time to time, those […]

It’s Friday, and you know what that means: Reader Case time! Today’s reader case comes from a familiar place: A Canadian wanting to buy a house because they want to use it as a “passive investment.” Hoo boy. Now I know that it may seem like we have a bit of an anti-housing bias on this site, but we’re not actually anti-housing as much as we are pro-math. We will go where the math takes us, and if it tells us that it’s OK to buy, we will say so. So with that in mind, let’s dive in, shall we? […]
