Welcome to Friday, hustlers. You know how everyone’s always talking about “keeping up with the Joneses,” and how it’s best to not compare yourselves to others? Well, this Would You Rather we’ve got for you today will test you on just that ;) I reckon most of you will vote the financially smart way considering you’re on this site, but do try to answer this […]

Tell People What You Want

My brother always thinks I have my $hit together because I never ask him for any help. It’s true I never ask him in the general sense, but it’s false I don’t have any problems. I just go about it a different way than straight up asking people for something which I admittedly suck at. Instead, I tell people what my goals are. And do […]

Morning hustlers! Got a piece of juicy mail come my way over the weekend, and thought I’d hit you with it to further encourage your voyeurism ;) This letter came courtesy of the Social Security Administration, and was a stark contrast from the other notice I received at the same time pretty much telling me I’m getting kicked out of my health insurance plan by […]

A genius by the name of Carl Richards recently posed this question in a New York Times piece, and I can’t stop thinking about it: What would happen, I asked, if we had to walk around with our true wealth flashing as a number above our heads? It would be the end of consumerism, he replied. Why would you need to buy something to represent […]

WTF Wednesdays will be dedicated to the random, the wacky, or the straight up weird stuff that people do (or that’s done to them) – all in […]

Having Enough

Every few weeks I’ll lean in to my wife and whisper, “If I were to die tomorrow, I’d be a happy man.” It freaks her the hell out (and rightfully so) but it’s a reminder to her, and more importantly to myself, that as of this day in time I have enough. I have enough love. I have enough things. And I (almost) have enough […]

“Retiring Early” REALLY Means “Being Financially Free”

Inevitably any time you mention you’re working on “retiring early” to someone, you’re met with comments like, “that’s not possible,” and “won’t you get bored???” (Gag me) The first one I can understand because, well, it’s hard as $hit to pull off and you have to want it bad enough to accomplish it.
