It’s Friday, and you know what that means: time for another reader case! Now, I’ve just realized that it’s been a while since we did a housing-heavy case study. These are always a bitch to parse through because of the sheer volume of numbers involved, but what can I say? I like pain (just ask FIRECracker). So I dug into my trusty pile of reader cases for a good housing-related one and as usual our readers did not disappoint. Hi, I first heard about your blog this evening and have spend the last 5 hours pouring through your posts, which […]

Hey y’all! It’s Friday, so you know what that means…READER CASE TIME. Now, because we have a MASSIVE reader case backlog, we tend to be pretty selective. We only want to feature the cases that we believe will help the most number of people. So when we first looked at this reader case and saw the words “actively seeking to invest in cryptocurrencies,” my first instinct was to throw up my hands and go “Forget it. This guy’s toast.” But as I read farther, I was surprised to find that even though this reader’s situation seems dire, when you MathShitUp, you […]

FIRECracker is Canada's youngest retiree. She used to live in one of the most expensive cities in Canada, but instead of drowning in debt, she rejected home ownership. What resulted was a 7-figure portfolio, which has allowed her and her husband to retire at 31 and travel the world. Their story has been featured on CBC, the Huffington Post, CNBC, BNN, Business Insider, and Yahoo Finance. To date, it is the most shared story in CBC history and their viral video on CBC's On the Money has garnered 4.5 Million views.

As an Optimizer, engineer, and someone who grew up poor, I have a tendency to try to squeeze the maximum value out of everything. Case in point. Back in 2012, when we went on vacation to London for the first time, I was so excited I made a schedule that broke each day up into 30 minute-1 hour increments. I then assigned an activity to each block like an obsessive little micro-manager, trying to squeeze maximum value out of our 2 weeks. Every minute was accounted for. No museum, castle, or pub was safe from my tornado of efficiency. I […]

It’s Friday, so you know what that means: Time for another Reader Case! Today’s reader case is from a reader case alumni: MontrealDilemma. Way back when, MD’s employer asked him to move to Toronto, and was wondering what to do with his condo: Sell it or rent it? We mathed-shit-up and realized that after costs, the rent he’d be getting would have sucked compared to investing, so we advised MD to pull the ripcord and sell that sucka! Well, a year and a half later, here’s what he’s been up to.. Hi Firecracker, Last we spoke, I asked you to […]

Due to popular demand, we’ve having a “Where Are They Now” post today! We’ve reached out to Reader Case alumni to see what they’re up to. Did they do any of the things we suggested? Did their lives improve in any way? Did anything we say matter? Our goal, here at Millennial Revolution, is to build a community where we can inspire and cheer each other on towards financial independence. Let’s see if we’ve accomplished that: Reader Case #13: Big Earnings, Big Student Debt. Recap: After living in shelters and growing up poor in Chicago, MAS (Millennia Academic Scientist) claws her way […]
