I think it’s time for a reader case, so let’s dip into the ol’ mail bag and see what we find, shall we? Hi Millennial Revolution. Let me start by saying that I love your book!

I took some days off of work so I have time to organize and plan how to get to early retirement – and got hooked reading your book. The section on taxes was amazing to me and something that I had not even considered. […]

With the pandemic slowly receding into the rearview mirror and earning an average of…hmmm, let’s see…0 out of 5 stars on Yelp for, and I quote, “sucking ass,” now seems to be a good time to sit back and reflect on why none of us want to ever do this ever again. But even though the pandemic was (and in many parts of the world, still is) a horrible experience for everyone, there are a few rays of positive change that managed to sneak their way through the gloomy, COVID-infected storm-clouds.

Now that the family health emergencies are behind us (knock on wood), we finally have time to go back to writing more articles and helping you, our readers, get to FI faster.

I am a waiter in […]

As FIRECracker recently mentioned, we’ve been dealing with seemingly back-to-back family emergencies lately. Everyone’s fine now, and as a result we’re going to try to get back into our “normal” rhythm of two articles a week. So on that note, FRIDAY READER CASE TIME! Today’s email comes from the US of A, with a big-income-big-spending family coming from a rather unlikely field: The military! Hello from the Southern USA! Just finished “Quit Like a Millionaire” this weekend which led me to your blog. Been binge reading posts and saw the option to write you both. First I want to say […]
