Let’s Go Exploring! Costa Rica: The Good, the Bad, and the Terrible

Hot rivers are hot springs on steroids. Fast, furious, and so addictive it should be illegal. The very fact that they exist kind of boggles my mind. I mean, isn’t it cool enough that naturally hot pools of water exist? But entire RIVERS that heat themselves with the power of volcanoes? Wow. Props, Mother Nature. Props. You haven’t lived if you haven’t sat under a hot stream of river water, breathing in the steam, while letting the flowing water massage your back. This is what you will experience if you go to La Fortuna, Costa Rica. Oh and did I […]

Investment Workshop 50: Goodbye TD Ameritrade, Hello Vanguard!

Hello again and welcome back to the Millennial Revolution Investment Workshop! New readers, please click here to start from the beginning. Hi everyone! Wow, we are quickly coming up to the end of our 1-year Investment Workshop experiment. My, how time flies. Today we’ll be doing not just one but two big things: Our last buy of the year AND…completely switching over our brokerage account! Nothing too major. For those who don’t know, we’ve been using TD Ameritrade as our American trading platform because of their fairly extensive list of commission-free ETFs. We liked this setup since it allowed us […]

The Three Paths to Financial Independence

Over the past 2 years of post-retirement, we’ve met dozens of people who had either reached Financial Independence themselves or were well on their way there. And something we noticed over time was that while many of them had similar views to money as we did, not everyone necessarily agreed with us on everything. And not everyone took the exact same path to get there. Some bought investment properties, some started businesses, some invested in individual stocks, which on the surface contradicts everything we talk about on Millennial Revolution. Some weren’t even millennials! *gasp* The horror. Yet these people still […]

Friday Reader Case: Reformed Debt-Junkie Wants to Retire with Kids

It’s Friday again and you know what that means! Time for another Friday Reader Case. Dun. Dun. Dun. *cue ominous music”. No wait, scratch that. *Cue rainbows and unicorns* because if you read this reader case, you’ll see exactly what I picked it. This person is so adorable, it’s hard to yell at them. I will if I need to, but it’s hard is what I’m saying.   “HELLLLOoOOOoOOoOooOoOOoo!!! (Mrs. Doubtfire-style) Kicking things off: you and Wanderer are my unwitting spirit animals. We’re a Canadian/Irish couple living in Toronto—I’m a graphic designer, he’s just started as a web developer. Tragically, […]

Investment Workshop 49: Expat Insurance

Hello again and welcome back to the Millennial Revolution Investment Workshop! New readers, please click here to start from the beginning. Just to give everyone an update, our tireless research into a new home for all of our Workshop money continues after TD Ameritrade decided to screw us over. Thanks to YOUR suggestions, we’ve narrowed down our list to 2 or 3 possible brokerage companies, and whoever we end up going with will be the best choice for YOU, our readers. What that company is, though, we’re still deciding. Once we do, though, you guys/gals will be the first to […]
