Would You Sell Everything to Travel the World?
“Ultimately, we would not have quit our jobs, sold all of our stuff and became perpetual world travellers if not for the inspiration of Kristy and Bryce. I highly encourage this book to everyone that wants to regain financial control over the life. It has been life changing for us so will it be for you!” – Mr. NomadNumbers After putting 2 years of work into writing Quit Like a Millionaire, getting reviews like this is my favourite part of book publishing.

The Life Changing Magic of FIRE
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard of Marie Kondo’s book “The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up”. I have to admit, when I first heard about this best-selling book, my reaction was skepticism, followed by a lot of eyerolling. I mean, how could something as simple as just tidying up be classified as “life changing”?

Those were simpler times.” So I’m going to TRY to kind of […]
QUIT LIKE A MILLIONAIRE is Now Published!
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 […]

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. […]
