We’ve been sitting on a bit of exciting news for a few weeks now, mostly because we were still deep in contract negotiations up until a few days ago, but now that we’ve officially signed the papers, we are proud to announce: We just signed a book deal with Penguin Random House! Specifically, we’re at the same imprint (TarcherPerigee) as… Nomadic Matt’s “How To Travel The World on $50 a Day” (which we wrote about here) Napolean Hill’s best-selling self-help book “Think and Grow Rich” Chris Guillebeau’s “The Art of Nonconformity” Regular readers may remember us stating at the beginning […]

Hi peeps! It’s Friday again, which means…time for another Reader case! This reader writes to us from the GTA, and is wondering whether FIRE is right for them since they enjoy their jobs, and don’t see the point of retiring. Now, I’m glad they mentioned this, as I’ve said before, Financially Independence isn’t about retiring. It’s about freedom. You get to CHOOSE whether you want to work or not. Love your job? Keep working. Love your job but want more free time, work part-time or switch to a contract. The choice is completely up to you. But before you can […]

Another week, another check mark in the game of Canada’s slow-motion housing crash bingo. Let’s recap the sequence of events that led up to the US housing crash and let’s see how many of them we’ve hit so far. Step 1: Households Take on Massive Mortgage Debt This is the first step of any housing crash where average families take on stupid amounts of debt, borrowing excessively under the assumption that any amount of debt is OK because housing always goes up. Right before the American housing market collapsed, Americans borrowed 147% of their household disposable income. And in Canada? […]

One of my favourite things about retiring early is having the time and energy to read more books. And one of the books that made an impression on me recently is called “Grit” by Angela Duckworth. The title was intriguing enough, but as soon I saw this in the summary I was hooked: Angela Duckworth shows how grit – the combination of passion and perseverance – distinguishes high achievers, and why talent isn’t as important as most people think. If you’ve been a long time reader of this blog (thank you, you rock!), you know that I don’t believe our […]

After the disappointment of AquaCity in Poprad, we decided to go for a do-over in Piestany, where they was a entire island full of spas—appropriately named “Spa Island”. As soon as we arrived we knew we were going to have an intense relaxation experience given that people from all over the world (60% of the people who visit Spa island are foreigners) come all the way to Slovakia to get treatment for all sorts of ailments—like rheumatic arthritis, muscle injuries, and overall stress relief. The treatments are successful and world renown that they symbol for the Spa island is this: […]

Well, this has been an exciting few days in the stock market hasn’t it? On Friday, February 2nd, the Dow Jones plummeted 666 points, the single worst performing day of the stock market in Trump’s presidency. On Monday, February 5th, the Dow did even worse, slumping another 1175 points, marking the biggest one-day drop (in # of points) in the Dow Jones’ history. And then on Tuesday February 6th, the Dow opened down another 567 points, only to close up 567 points, for a stunning 1134-point intra-day swing. This has caused no shortage of breathless commentary from wheezing talking-heads on […]

The other day a reader sent me this article on the CBC talking about the experience buying a home right now for some hapless Canadian buyers. Basically, this couple bought a pre-construction property in Whitby (a suburb of Toronto) last year and were shocked to learn that new people buying into the development right next to them were paying up to $90,000 less than they did. All in a matter of months. To come back a year later and see the same house that we bought is now $90,000 cheaper, that’s not cool,” Thompson, 52, said in an interview. ~What Did the […]
