Saw an interesting tip posed by my man Tom Corley the other day, author of Rich Habits. He says this is the “only question you ever need to ask yourself” before making a move. Which is kinda drastic in my opinion, but hey – here I am blogging about it! Here’s the question: “How will this move me forward?” So simple, yet so profound! And […]

In honor of missing out on Millionaire Day over the weekend (BLASPHEMY!!), I thought we’d go over some of the frugal habits of the wealthy today and see how we compare :) I saw FreeMoneyFinance do this over on his own blog the other day, so if you’re wondering – yes, I’m going to totally copy him. Although in all fairness, he did nab the […]

Thumbnail image for Warren Buffett – The Original Early Retiree?

Just read a pretty fascinating summary on Warren Buffet’s early years, and almost spit out my coffee midway through. Apparently at 25 years old he wanted to retire! And actually turned down a dream opportunity in order to do so!! “The thing is, when I got out of college, I had $9,800, but by the end of 1955, I was up to $127,000. I thought, […]

“The challenge is not to touch it!” That’s what I overheard a 65 year old guy telling a 13 year old kid the other day while checking out at Target :) I *of course* had to switch lanes so I can get closer to eavesdropping territory, and from what I could tell they somehow got on the topic of becoming a millionaire, and more particularly […]

October 10, 2016
thousand dollar club

You know what’s hard? Making your first million dollars. [Dayuuuuuum!!!] For us normal people, though, I say making your first $100,000 is the ultimate achievement. You can’t make it to a million or a billion without first hitting $100,000, but even more than that – it requires a complete overhaul of both your money and your mindset. You literally go from knowing jack crap to […]

You know those Joneses we’re always comparing ourselves too? Well, not only were they apparently a real family, but their long desired mansion just crossed the auction lot – and in bankruptcy at that! It’s known as the Wyndclyffe Castle, and was built in 1853 for Manhattan socialite Elizabeth Schermerhorn Jones – a member of a wealthy family and aunt of American novelist Edith Wharton […]

Raise your hand if you’re a millionaire? Raise your hand if you’re a wannabe millionaire? Raise your hand if you could care less about how many millions you have? (Stop it, millennials) When I first started this blog, all I cared about was becoming a millionaire. I didn’t know how I was going to do it exactly, or why I even wanted to be one […]

You know how everyone says that we need more financial education in schools, and if we had that everyone would spend less and save more and live out the rest of their lives happily ever after? Well, I’m not a teacher, but if I were I would change the names of all courses from “how to manage your money” to “How to become a millionaire, […]

I was at a meetup the other day, and after chit-chatting for a bit one of the guys in the group asked me what I did for a living (shocker – when does that NOT ever come up in life?). I told him I blog about money online, and not only did he “get it” right away, but his eyes lit up! Turns out he […]

In 2008, billionaire entrepreneur Mark Cuban wrote a post on how to get rich. In 2011, this same billionaire re-posted it again as the economy continued to go south. That same year Business Insider syndicated it, a handful of other major media ran with it, and then the highly regarded financial outlet, Budgets Are Sexy, smartly covered it too ;) As I sit here in […]
