Back in 2014, the year before I quit my job to travel the world, there was only one picture on my phone I’d taken that whole year, and this was it: This was a bacon latte I had at a board game café in Toronto, on a rare weekend where I wasn’t working overtime or writing my first novel, finally spending time with friends. It wasn’t the best latte I’d ever had, but as far as interesting things happening in my life, this strange, confusing concoction (meat and coffee, together at last!) was it. Life was a blur back then, […]

After the terrible experience in 2020 of being holed up away from family and friends, Christmas and New Year’s 2021 was a significant improvement. I mean, sure, we had to do a bunch of rapid tests and sure, we had to intersperse going to COVID booster appointments in between unwrapping presents, but this year we were able to finally spend Christmas with our loved ones. And it was AWESOME. As the clock ticked down to midnight on New Year’s Eve, I reflected on the past year with a few close friends. Was the worst behind us? Do we dare hope […]

Today’s post will be our last of 2021, and as we all endure yet another pandemic holiday season, with a new variant threatening to put us back into lockdowns and potentially roll back all the progress and sacrifice we’ve made over the last 2 miserable years, it’s easy to get all gloomy and doomy whenever we turn on the TV or read the news.

“Should time now be our greatest aspiration?” –The Guardian Warren Buffett is currently worth $100 Billion dollars. To put that in perspective, if you bought a Tesla Model S every day of your life, it would take you 2740 years to use up all his money. Given the average North American lifespan of 81 years, that would take you 34 lifetimes! But Buffett is 91 years old. And since we haven’t figured out immortality, it’s a safe beat that most of you reading this will likely outlive him. So, would you trade places with Warren Buffett? The correct answer is […]

Before discovering the concept of financial independence, we were busy climbing the career ladder in the fields of marketing […]
