It’s Friday, and you know what that means: time for another Reader Case! Today’s contestant is just starting out, but he’s run smack dab into a problem that we all face when attempting to achieve financial independence: the finance industry. Hi FIREcracker, My wife and I discovered your blog and feel that we are in a position to achieve financial independence and early retirement. We’ve traveled the world for six months and want to make it a part-time reality. We’ve read from MMM that you should have 25x your living expenses before you retire. We believe that we could retire […]

I can’t get enough of yours and Bryce’s story as home-grown inspiration fodder, so it’s already on the to-read list! Major kudos on another book. You guys are […]

FIRECracker is a world-travelling early retiree. She used to live in one of the most expensive cities in Canada, but instead of drowning in debt, she rejected home ownership.

The last time we were in Toronto in August, we noticed more self-checkouts and less cashiers. We noticed the same thing in cities in the UK and Europe. Gone are the days where you had a smiling cashier asking you whether you want plastic or paper. Now, you simply scan your own groceries and bag it yourself as a cheerful looking avatar smiles approvingly from the screen. And it wasn’t just cashiers either. I also noticed machines replacing wait staff, driverless cars replacing drivers, and robots replacing factory workers. This got me thinking, are machines stealing our jobs? According to […]

Singing: “It’s Friday Friday, gotta get down on Friday…” Rebecca Black’s lyrics aside, I actually had no idea it was Friday until I got pinged from my asana to write a Friday post. That is one downside to early retirement—it’s really hard to figure out what day of the week it is! But now that we know it’s Friday, you know what that means? Time for a reader case! We get a lot of reader cases and this one really popped out at me because I was so impressed with what this couple has accomplished in just 10 months! You’ll […]

    It’s Friday, so you know what that means…Reader Case time! Today’s reader jumped out at me because of the provocative subject line: It is EVER OK to buy a house? Now, we here at Millennial-Revolution.com have taken some strong positions on housing, but don’t get us wrong. We’re not against HOUSING, we’re against massive, unsustainable DEBT. After all, the decision to buy a house has to be weighed against the cost of rent. If it cost $1,000,000 to rent every month, yet buying cost $1, then obviously it would makes sense to buy. So there’s a balance point […]
