Reading Time: 9 minutesGYFG here checking in for the August monthly financial report. If you have been reading these reports for a while you will notice that I have the same intro month after month. I do this for two reasons; a) for the newbies to the site (which make up about 50% of the site’s traffic), and b) to remind everyone what these reports are all about. By all ...

Today we have a fascinating guest taking over the blog to tell us a bit about his freedom fighting journey. He’s the first doctor we have showecased on the blog, and has already become financially independent (with a net worth around $3M), and work has therefore become optional. He hasn’t pulled the plug on the day job just yet, but he is moving to a reduced work schedule. You could say ...

Way back in February I shared 5 big money goals and I thought now that we are sitting here with only 4 months left to the year that it would be a good time to circle back and see how I am doing against those goals. It’s probably also a good time to update things that have changed vs. the plan I set out months ago. Before we jump into the ...

Most people don’t want to work forever. At some point in their lives, they hope to retire – or at least have the option to retire. Unfortunately, there are too many people who think that they’ll never accumulate the wealth that they need to retire. Others get wrapped up in gambling or other get-rich-quick schemes, hoping to skip the years of hard work required to accumulate sufficient wealth to have ...

The GYFG household has been in a fortunate situation in that we have been able to live the DINK (dual income no kids) lifestyle. This has had a huge impact on our ability to generate a high income, leading to a high savings rate, and thus a larger net worth faster than we otherwise would have. Seriously, it’s a huge advantage to have a two income household. However, we find ourselves ...

Over the last decade or so, the banking industry has grappled with all-time low interest rates, a languid economy and tough regulations. Against this backdrop, the going has been tough for most banks. However, banks are now getting proactive and reshaping their financial priorities to enhance their performance. In a nutshell, they are looking to make things “better and “safer” through better risk management and sound strategic planning. Clearly, your priorities should ...

I wrote about PeerStreet for the first time back in March of 2017 after I had been invited to visit their HQ and interview their founders. Since then I have aggressively grown my investment accounts with them in a little less than 5 months. I want to take a deeper dive into the platform and the investments I’m holding in one of my two accounts (it’s a self directed IRA). Navigating ...

It’s summer time and I’m making an active effort to unplug more than I have in the past. So, you will notice a few more guests posts than normal. I appreciate all of the other bloggers, freelance writers, and readers that have raised their hand to help keep the blog alive and well over summer. I hope you’re also taking some time this summer to unplug and enjoy a bit. Just ...
