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.

What a couple of weeks this has been in the UK! First, our audiobook recording, then the London movie premiere of Playing with Fire. And to cap it all off, we then went right into Chautauqua in the UK! This is now the 5th Chautauqua we’ve spoken at, and a thought that had crept into our heads was that the magic of Chautauqua might not be as shiny and new the 5th time around. Well, I am happy (and relieved) that fear turned out to be completely misplaced, because Chautauqua is EXACTLY as awesome EVERY SINGLE TIME! The Place First […]

  The past 2 weeks have been the craziest weeks in our lives thus far. If it seems like our posting schedule has been a bit sparse, sorry about that. We’ll go back to our regular posting schedule shortly. Here’s how the craziness played out: Day 1-3: Penguin Audiobook recording in London (with JLCollins reading his Foreward) Day 3: International premier of “Playing with FIRE”  Day 5: Back to the studio to finish audiobook recording (apparently 3 days wasn’t enough) Day 5: Bloomberg TV recording Day 6-13: Chautauqua At one point, Wanderer and I had to split up because we […]

Phew, what a week it’s been. A few days ago we flew into London from Thailand after a brief layover in Norway (a sentence I fully enjoy being able to write), and I hope you’ll forgive our lack of a post last week because I was in a studio recording the audiobook for Quit Like a Millionaire! This has been a bizarre experience to say the least. Never in a million years did I ever think I would be sitting in a recording studio reading my own book, about my own life knowing that it was going to turn into […]

This might come as a surprise to some of you, but I wasn’t always a firecracker. In fact, there was a brief period in childhood (which I’m embarrassed now to admit) that I wanted to be a princess. And no, not a fearsome warrior princess who throws fireballs. A Disney princess who sings. I wanted to be the Little Mermaid, dress up in pink frilly dresses, and twirl around the room singing “Part of Your World.” These days, you’re more likely to find me hiking a mountain in cargo pants than twirling in ballgowns. But from time to time, those […]

I recently read a University of Virginia study that says introverts prefer mountains while extroverts prefer beaches. This got me thinking. As a kid, talking to a stranger made me break out in hives and going to a party was hell. I was painfully shy. If you’d given me the option of hibernating in the mountains or partying it up on a beach, I’d have gladly picked the former.  This changed as I got older. I’m no longer terrified by strangers and parties are actually fun! Coincidentally, I also learned how to scuba dive and I now love beaches as much […]
