It’s Friday, and you know what means: Reader Case time! Before we start, a few thoughts on today’s letter. In fiction, one of the hardest things to pull off when writing dialogue is voice. Voice is what gives a character a distinct “sound,” if that makes any sense, and when done well can a) make the character instantly recognizable just by how they talk and b) makes you “hear” what the person sounds like in your head as you read it. Just from a writing perspective, today’s letter is a fantastic example of something just dripping with voice. Seriously, read this […]

It’s Friday, so you know what that means: Reader case time! When we started doing Reader Cases a little over 2 years ago, we simply thought it would be a great educational experience to see some real life examples and get feedback from the MR community to help each other out. We had no idea the impact this would have on individual readers, as some of them have written in and updated us on their amazing progress. And recently, we had the biggest shock of our lifetime when read this e-mail detailing the complete 180 degree turn around in this […]

It’s Friday, so you know what that means…another reader case! Hello Wanderer and Firecracker, I’ve always been a fairly frugal person, and my wife a little less so, but we always lived on less than we made and always disliked debt. I first saw the CBC article about you guys and thought, well… good for them. We could probably do that, but… hey, look something new and shiny in the news. I didn’t look further into that. What got me interested was the follow-up article that talked about the rash of comments from the first article. That piqued my interest […]

It’s Friday, and you know what that means…another Reader Case! Today’s is from a reader in France. I am constantly amazed by the international audience we have, and doing this case also had the added benefit of forcing me to figure out how to type the euro symbol on a Mac with an American keyboard. It’s Alt-Shift-2. The more you know! Dear FIRECracker, We got to first know you through the video “Millennial Revolution” on YouTube which totally inspired me. You said out loud in a very rational manner what I was feeling for so many years. I am glad […]

It’s Friday, so you know what means: Reader Case time! Today’s reader case is from a long-time reader at a bit of a crossroads (hence the title). She’s been living and working in Alberta, has been reasonably responsible with her money but she’s coming to the point where she’s asking “Is this it?” Her and her family wants to make a run for Financial Independence and want us to analyze their situation and figure out whether it’s even possible. So without further ado, let’s dive right in, shall we? Dear Millennial Revolution, My husband and I are 37 and 39 […]
