Last fall, my wife and I bought a beautiful ~40 acre property just down the road from our current home.  It has close to 35 acres of forest, with lots of hardwood trees, an enormous creek, and plenty of turkey, squirrel, deer, and other creatures that call it home.  We have been told that there is even a coywolf, that the previous owner lovingly named ‘Berry,’ who lives there.  We’ve ...

That is the million-dollar-question… see what I did there  Another way you could ask yourself this question is, “How little do I need to retire?”  This slight variation in how you present the question, will probably give you very different answers. For those of you that have followed the topic of personal finance and early retirement for quite some time, this will not be news to you.  For those who ...

As I mentioned in the post How to Budget Like a Boss, YOU are in charge of your money! You decide what you want those dollars to do, and it’s your responsibility to make sure that they do their job.  A budget is a tool that puts you in control of your finances instead of letting your finances control you.  Hopefully, you have started the process with one of the methods ...

With another baby due in January of 2018, my wife and I have been looking for a larger vehicle to accommodate our (still) growing family.  We went into our search with several key things we were looking for… our own list of demands for the right car!  But, I’ll get to that in just a bit… You see, every time we make financial decisions or a major purchase, our emotions can ...

Look at all those George Washingtons, and other presidents, you have ready to work for you… it’s like you have your own team of employees and you’re the Head Mutha Flower in Charge!  Every time you receive some of those greenbacks, they just sit there waiting until you give them something to do… Some of them will go to the basic pamperings no fancypants American can do without: light on demand, ...

“If you aim at nothing, you’ll hit it every time.”  That is one of my favorite quotes from the legendary Zig Ziglar.  The Joneses are broke for this very reason… poor planning, no specific goals, and flying by the seat of your pants provides you with absolutely no direction for the future and a lifetime of aimless wandering. So, if you don’t know where you’re going, any road will do… otherwise, ...

I don’t know about you, but retiring right around the time I will be going BACK into diapers is not my idea of how I’d like to spend mine.  Let’s take a quick look at “the Joneses” and you can decide whether or not that’s the route you want to go in your retirement. The average American has less than $10,000 saved for retirement and does not even have at least $500 ...

That’s what my brother texted me, the morning after I created a Twitter account for the blog.   “What? How the hell did you know that,” I asked.  Great, so I let the cat out of the bag before I even had the chance to write my first post.  I guess I better explain (to him and to you) what the Black Sheep Millionaire Blog is all about. If you couldn’t ...
