Over the past year I’ve tried over 100 new Fintech apps like Cinch Financial, so I feel like I’ve seen it all.

Documenting the financial independence retire early (FIRE) movement   This past week I had the opportunity to join some of the top financial independence bloggers in a roundtable discussion about money, life, and all the fits between.

I started my financial independence journey in 2010 and saved $1.25 million in 5 years, reaching financial independence at the age of 30. I get asked a lot how I did it and how someone else can too, so I decided to outline the variables and scenarios that impact how fast you, depending on your income can save $1 million.

One of the most frequent reader and media questions I get is “What’s your favorite money app?” I’ve been using money apps since 2008 when I got my first iPhone and they’ve been insanely helpful in my early retirement journey.

Throughout history, most people have needed to work until they died, both because they weren’t able to make enough money quickly enough to make work optional and they also died really young. For a vast majority of the time that humans have been around, we just haven’t lived that long. It’s really only been in the past 150 years, through the evolution of modern medicine and quality of life increases, ...

Without side hustling, I never would have become a millionaire. In fact, side hustling and investing the extra money was one of the key drivers of my net-worth growth and I estimate I’ve made over $1 million side hustling. Over the next several months I’m...
