In general, we seem to have a tendency to focus a lot of our time and money on the things that don’t really matter.  It’s time to stop it and instead concentrate on what does matter… So far this summer we’ve taken a ...

In my post, Panama Vacation – Part 1, I talked about the first half of trip to Panama.  If you haven’t read it yet, I recommend you check it out… a lot of good information on Nueva Gorgona and Anton Valley.  But now it’s time for some Boquete talk and that’s what I’m excited about! After initially getting everyone on board for the idea of this trip, I started researching.  I dug ...

We finally made the trip I’ve been waiting for… our Panama vacation!  And guess what – it was awesome! Because there’s a lot to cover, I thought I’d break this up into a couple posts.  This first post will cover the first half of our trip and the second post will cover the second half – easy enough, right?  🙂 If you’ve been following my adventures, you know that I’ve been doing ...

Financial regrets, I’ve had a few… As I guy in my early forties, I sometimes take a moment here and there to reflect on how my path in life has gone.  I don’t dwell – I just try to look back at my mistakes ...

I hate exercise and fitness. You know how some people talk about how running or a good workout makes them feel refreshed and invigorated? Well, I’m not that guy.  I despise knowing I have to do it, I hate the actual exercise, and when I’m done, I’m just glad it’s over. If you’re a guy or gal who’s on top of your fitness goals, this post probably isn’t going to be up your alley.   If I hate ...

We all know that working for yourself has a lot of benefits that you can’t get from working for someone else.  The ability to better control your company’s destiny, the independence and freedom you can gain, and the flexibility in hours are just a few of the possibilities that might be gained. However, I was thinking recently about another major benefit that working for yourself can provide.  But what fun would that be to ...

An Open Letter to My Daughter My father passed away when I was around the age my daughter is now.  That’s made me think over the years that, should something ever happen to me, I’d like to know that I was able to pass ...

Once upon I time, a young man we’ll randomly call “Jim” was in college and barely had a dollar to his name… Ok, fine – that young man was me – dang it, you ruin everything!  Anyway, like a good number of college students, overdrawing my checking account wasn’t too uncommon. In fact, it actually wasn’t uncommon for me to blow out my balance on a periodic basis for a year or so after ...

Most of us who are working to become financially free, spend a lot of our days daydreaming what it would actually be like to be financially free. I think the initial dream for a lot of us is to just sit on the beach all day sipping piña coladas – mmm, that does sound good! But, once the dream starts to become more real, it’s pretty likely that the piña coladas are only going to be a ...
