FIRECracker

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. 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.

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 […]

It’s Friday, and you know what that means…Reader Study Time! Today’s reader has a few questions for us, but the main one is one that’s been asked a lot lately: When is a good time to enter the market? So without further ado, onto their email! I am single and in late twenties in Canada. I am wondering how I best allocate the $95k (and growing monthly) I have sitting in the chequing account & any additional suggestions. Based on what I have had read the stock market seems highly valuated (higher average PE ratio, with lower future projected returns) […]

I never expected to breeze through a 352-page Finance tome at 30,000 feet in the air, but two days ago, it happened. We were headed to Bangkok from Milan on a ten-hour flight, and despite the long list of free movies to choose from, I decided to read Financial Freedom by Grant Sabatier—a book I’d been eagerly anticipating for months. Grant has been a friend of mine ever since we met at Fincon in back in 2017 and I was beyond excited to hear that he was writing a book that same year. I was even more excited when we […]
