Usually when I read an email from someone asking for a case study, I can usually tell where it’s going within the first paragraph or so. This one, however, I must admit I started getting more and more alarmed the more I read. Our reader has made some…let’s say…expensive mistakes over their life, and as a result is writing to us at the age of 50 with no money and still going FURTHER into student loans. Needless to say, I wasn’t hopeful that we could pull him out of his financial nosedive, but people who know me know that I’m […]

Hey everyone! In our continuing struggle to get back to a somewhat normal posting schedule, today we decided to do a reader case! It’s been a while, hasn’t it? A recurring theme we’re getting from customer reviews of our book is that they “wish they knew all this 20 years ago!” To those people, I always respond that it’s never too late to get started, but to their point all this information we present does have the greatest impact on a person’s life if they receive it at the beginning of their working careers. Fortunately, today’s case comes from someone […]

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”? Apparently, according to Kondo, tidying caused major life changes in her clients’ lives, like ditching a job they hated to find their passion or gaining the courage to finally ditch the relationship that wasn’t working. Basically, the book espouses that tidying […]

    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. […]
