One thing that really bothers me about investing in funds is I always feel like some hotshot in a New York high-rise is trying to skim some percentage of my capital to 'manage it'. The average human managed fund fleeces you at least 1-3% of your capital and often requires a very high minimum entry requirement. Through some complicated assortment of fees or commission, I usually get confused and discouraged ...

To counter my fear of spending, I recently, bravely, exploded my monthly spending rate from $2500/mo to over $5000/mo, but I still somehow had a personal record month for cash flow (not including unusual spike of annual bonus). My net worth increased $40,000 over the last 30 days. How was this achieved' Well for one, its clearly an exceptional bull market, I earned approximately ~$20k for large investments in Netflix ...

Ever since I turned 30, I've thought more and more about my mortality. I'm still a fairly young, guy with no children, so even though I have hopes for a family of my own in the future, there are no guarantees. My mind sometimes wanders.

An older friend, lets call him John, that does contract work for my company came into my office, sat down across from my desk... and let out a deep sigh. I could tell he had a lot on his mind so I minimized Youtube and asked him "What was wrong!'".

I grew up playing popular fantasy games like Magic the Gathering, Everquest, and World of Warcraft, role-playing powerful wizards, warriors, and warlocks who were able to perform impressive magical feats of conjuration or destruction at the expense of their Mana. Mana is a word used to measure the power, effectiveness, or prestige of a spell caster to use spells and special abilities. When a caster runs out of Mana, they ...
