Time to Improve Your Body & Mind

So I just got back from my two week long vacation and, man, am I tired.  Traveling across multiple cities in Vietnam and Thailand can definitely put a toll on your body mentally as well as physically.  Simply, I’m getting old.

But it made me sit back and think about what that freedom offered me.  It was nice to just do something fun, see new things, and not have to worry about waking up to go to work the very next day. Continue reading “Time to Improve Your Body & Mind”

Goal of $1 Million in Investable Assets Before 40

Earlier today I was having a discussion with an old friend regarding my future plans and it got me thinking.

I think about the future a lot.  I think about how to save the environment, poverty, and what my unborn children will be like.  I think about where I want to travel to, what I want to do, and how much money it’ll take for me to give it all up.  I also think about all the possible paths that may deviate me from my goals in life.   Continue reading “Goal of $1 Million in Investable Assets Before 40”

The 6 SIMPLE Steps Needed to Achieve Financial Independence and Early Retirement

To be honest, I have a pretty bad memory.  I do have a friend who has an eidetic memory though.  That dude can remember everything: the exact date that we met, the stain on the T-shirt I wore, the words we spoke to one another.  It’s pretty damn amazing.

It’s too bad I wasn’t blessed with that gift.  I had to get by using random tricks such as mnemonics.  But whatever works right?  C’s get degrees and D’s are for Dollars. Continue reading “The 6 SIMPLE Steps Needed to Achieve Financial Independence and Early Retirement”
