Book Review: Financial Freedom by Grant Sabatier

I never expected to breeze through a 352-page Finance tome at 30,000 feet in the air, but two days ago, it happened. We were headed to Bangkok from Milan on a ten-hour flight, and despite the long list of free movies to choose from, I decided to read Financial Freedom by Grant Sabatier—a book I’d been eagerly anticipating for months. Grant has been a friend of mine ever since we met at Fincon in back in 2017 and I was beyond excited to hear that he was writing a book that same year. I was even more excited when we […]

Let’s Go Exploring! How the Finns Beat Winter

“No f*cking way am I doing that,” I thought, watching a Finnish granny leap into the frigid Baltic sea, her shrieks piercing the air. “Well, she’s dead.” I concluded as I watched her grey locks slip beneath the surface. But then she bobbed up from the water, smiling and splashing around like a giddy seal, puffs of her breath steaming up the air. As I stood on the deck of the Löyly sauna, wrapping my towel tightly around myself, I decided, then and there, that when it comes to conquering winter, no one does it like the Finns. Long-time readers […]

Our 2018 finances Part 3

Back in 2013, I learned, for the first time, what it felt like to get paid doing what you love. You know that starving artist saying, “my wallet may be empty, but my heart is full”? I always thought it was cheesy, until I finally understood what it meant. A cheque had arrived in the mail that morning, from the sale of our first book Little Miss Evil and I was cradling it like a newborn baby. I even teared up a bit—something I don’t ever do. It wasn’t much, not even enough to cover my groceries that month, but […]

How to Become FI with 6 Kids, Zero Privilege, and a Small Salary

After our “what do you want to read about” poll, I heard you all loud and clear. All guest posts all the time! Seriously though, you will like this guest post I swear (also I had this post scheduled before I ran the poll so deal with it) Anyhoo…today, I want to introduce you to a very special person I met at Fincon. I didn’t know her background at the time, or the fact that she become financially independent at 32— despite growing up poor, like me, and never having a 6-figure salary. She even managed to become FI, while raising […]
