I started a series a while back on what money’s like in different parts of the world, but then promptly forgot about it until this morning when I received a note about life in Australia :) You can’t base an entire country’s perception on just one financial sliver, of course, but it sure does make for some interesting reading/learning, and thus we revive the series […]

As the 5 am wake ups continue, another effect has been an increased desire to learn more. I’m not typically one to go out of my way to pick up a book or learn something new just for the sake of learning, but all this week I’ve found myself being quite more curious than normal. It seems all this reflecting has opened up a new […]

I got a really interesting/confusing email the other day that initially through me for a loop. It was from my friend B. and went something like this: “Hey Jay! Do you still do money coaching?

If there’s one thing I like more than checking out my *own* finances, it’s being a voyeur and checking out OTHERS’ finances too, haha… it doesn’t even matter if they’re rich or poor or have no idea what they’re doing at all – it’s just a rush to see how other people live and manage their money :) So today I thought we’d start a […]
