Millennial Revolution: Updates Mondays and Fridays.




Live Free


    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 […]

Reader Case: Start Early, Retire Early

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. […]

Chautauqua UK 2019: A Week Together With Our Tribe

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 […]

Playing with FIRE: London Movie Premiere

  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 […]

Reading Your Own Book Is Harder Than You Think

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 […]
