I’m stoked to share a recent interview I did with Inc Magazine, written by Amanda Abella, who also interviewed me for her podcast. While I usually don’t write about my media mentions, I shared a ton of about my story and the money ideas that have had the biggest impact in my life. I have been an Inc. reader for many years, so I was super excited for the interview. Here ...

If you want to make more money, be more productive, stay healthy, and not lose your mind, then it’s essential to chill as hard as you hustle. The simple idea is to take care of yourself, but here is my method for avoiding burnout and quickly recovering when burnout happens. I gotta admit, it’s been a crazy past 6 months and this week I completely burnt out. Fizzled. Hit the wall. ...

  MM Note: I love featuring other people’s early retirement strategies. The following post is by ESI, an early retiree from ESI Money, a blog about achieving financial independence through earning, saving, and investing.

My assets are arranged so that I’m ...

  MM Note: This is a guest post from Elle Martinez, the Founder of Couple Money. She has written an incredible book on managing money with your partner, Jumpstart Your Marriage & Your Money. Elle is actually the first person who interviewed me on a money podcast if you want to check out our chat here.   I believe too many couples take the wrong approach with their finances and it’s causing them undue ...

  This strategy revolves around a simple but powerful mindset shift that personally transformed how I view money on a day-to-day basis. Now, whenever I compare two products or two prices, I always think about the percentage differences first, before the raw dollar amount. By looking at the percentage difference, it is easier to assess the actual savings or growth between two dollar amounts – resulting, when you use this to ...

  It is estimated that we, as millennials, will have at least 5 different careers in our lifetimes and many more jobs. So how can we even begin to prepare for a future that will no doubt be more mobile, autonomous and machine-driven than today? It’s not driving for Uber or Instacart, or generally participating in the pseudo-freedom of the gig economy. Sure, I’m a huge fan of the best side hustles, ...

In the past year, apartment rents have gone up 4.8% in Chicago and in the hot neighborhoods rents are up 15% year over year. Over the past 4 years, rents are up over 50%. Here’s a deeper analysis of the rents in cities across the United ...
