As recent adopters, we kept finding things we wanted to buy for our cat. We put each thing on our holiday wishlist, and I thought I would share the result with you. Each of these 11 items are things I would buy myself, but if they mysteriously ended up under a Christmas tree, I wouldn’t complain!
I have never considered myself a ‘cat person’. For one thing, I grew up with a dog. I spent most of my childhood anticipating getting a pup, saving up my money for the adoption fee, waking up to watch Animal Planet specials on dog training, and seriously deliberating about whether we should name her Bandit […]
I think it’s pretty obvious that you know everything when you hit your mid-twenties. You no longer go to events simply because you saw a poster for free pizza, and thus you have insight into the inner-workings of the world. Therefore I thought I could help out my 40-year-old self with wisdom from her earlier years. […]
When I heard that Julie (from Millennial Boss) and Cody (from FlyToFI) had partnered up to create courses, I jumped at the chance to learn from them. They are both inspiring entrepreneurs who make a ton of money with their side-hustles and freelance work. They are having their second public launch from today, Thursday, November […]
I used to have acne. Not just your typical teenage smattering of spots, but a full-blown pimple parade marching across my forehead, nose, and chin. When my birthdays ticked over from teens to twenties, the battle began in earnest. I tried everything—salicylic acid, oils and washes, and benzoyl peroxide that left my pillowcases and towels […]
There is power behind money that forces companies to consider their environmental, social, and political impact. As consumers, we influence which companies thrive; as investors we decide which companies survive.
People keep asking me how to stay motivated, and how to keep coming up with new ideas. I think the question really boils down to: how can I be more creative? Not just that, but how can I be preposterously creative? The type of creative that has people laughing, sobbing, thinking? It’s quite simple really, here it […]
I just got back from a conference for finance content creators (bloggers, podcasters, youtubers, etc). What a bunch of nerds! I was walking with my friends Zach (Four Pillar Freedom) and Becky (TwentyFree) when we jokingly threw out all the money advice we’ve heard lately. We may have repeated some of this advice ourselves. Then […]
I received an e-mail from a reader heading into the next chapter of his life: a soon-to-be empty-nester! He has a big question for us: should he take a mini-retirement while he’s still young, or stick it out until fully financially independent (FI)? He has a great salary and a high net worth, but doesn’t […]
My sister is extremely generous. As a kid, she delighted in pretending to take the family’s orders one-by-one, then carefully carrying out miscellaneous items from the kitchen meant to represent our hamburgers (me), filet mignon (dad), and lobster a la carte (mom). Every gift she gives is carefully considered and tailored to the recipient. Once, […]
