Investment Workshop 19: Inflation

Hello again and welcome back to the Millennial Revolution Investment Workshop! New readers, please click here to start from the beginning. Inflation. It’s a word that gets thrown around a lot in the financial news, and when it does those financial talking heads just kind of smile and nod knowingly as if they know what the Hell it means and why it’s important. Here’s the truth. Almost nobody fully understands Inflation. Why? Inflation is fucking complicated.

Investment Workshop 18: How to Manage Your Portfolio After Your Retire in Your 30’s

Hello again and welcome back to the Millennial Revolution Investment Workshop! New readers, please click here to start from the beginning. Today we are going to talk in more detail about how to manage your retirement portfolio after you give the 9-to-5 the ol’ heave-ho.

What I Learned Thinking I Was Going to Die

A few weeks ago, FIRECracker wrote about a potential health scare involving me, and I thought I’d give you all an update on what’s going on. This whole thing started, as most bad things start, at a bar. A buddy of mine met up with us, and he’s been in and out of hospitals lately due to complications following an accident.
