Millennials Are Turning 40: Have Things Gotten Better Or Worse?

When we started this blog, we were 30-something millennials frustrated by Boomers talking down to us as if we were entitled whiny brats who never had to endure “real” hardship in our lives. FIRECracker starting ranting, as she does from time to time, and I decided to write down what she said and turned it into something that I could film, and that rant turned into this blog. Now, 10 years later, millennials are entering middle age. We’ve endured multiple market crashes, a Great Financial Crisis, a pandemic, and so many supposedly world-ending geopolitical events that I’ve lost count. Our […]

Reader Case: Teachers Fast Track FIRE with Flag Theory

Today’s reader case really caught my eye because not only are they not six-figure STEM people, they love traveling as much as we do. Plus, they are able to do this FIRE thing on a combined $145k teachers’ salary while paying NO TAX. Let’s read on, shall we? Dear Millennial Revolution, We’ve been avid followers of your blog, and your lifestyle resonates deeply with my wife and me, especially now that we are new parents. As US citizens, we’ve spent the past 13 years teaching abroad. We have a toddler and are expecting our second child in December 2024. Our […]

Interest Rates Are Dropping – Now What?

On Wednesday, Canada’s central bank officially ended the fastest and most dramatic interest rate-hiking cycle in our country’s history by dropping the benchmark interest rate by 0.25%. This brings our overnight lending rate from 5% to 4.75%, and our central bank governor Tiff Macklem has indicated that more rate drops are on their way. This news has been heralded by our media as welcome relief for everyone that’s been punished by high rates, meaning mortgage holders, but that relief is not going to be as dramatic as many hoped. The reason? Here’s Canada’s historical interest rate chart. Mortgages in Canada […]

UK Entrepreneurs Reject Real Estate, Go Full Nomad!

Before we get to today’s post, I want to announce the winner of last week’s book contest. After randomizing the entries (I really enjoyed reading all the amazing 180+ comments! Thank you all for entering.), the winner is… *drum roll* Maddy: “I know it sounds lame… well, maybe not really, but it def feels lame… if I had a sudden $1000 I’d spend it on a crown for my tooth which has been broken for a long time. Crowns are so expensive (all dental work is now) and I realize how spoiled I was when working corporate and taking all […]

How to Hack Capitalism

I get requests to blurb/promote books often, but now that I have an energetic 8-month-old who just started crawling (I’m both in awe and horrified), I don’t have much time to read books. When this Singaporean reader contacted me about their book, my initial thought was “no thanks” but its comic book style intrigued me and the first chapter entitled “Accept that Life is Unfair” really spoke to me. Plus, it was short. Little did I know I was going to breeze through this book in just two days, devouring the pages during the only time I had for reading—nap […]
