Reading Time: 2 minutesIt wasn’t too long ago that I thought in terms of $1,000 to $10,000 buckets. As our income and net worth have grown, so too has my approach to thinking in terms of absolute dollar buckets. As we work our way towards a seven-figure net worth, I can’t help myself but think in terms of $50,000 to $100,000 buckets now. I ... The post Managing $50,000 to $100,000 Net ...

Reading Time: 9 minutesBeing the new year and all, I thought it would be appropriate to put together a checklist for those that want to improve their financial situation in 2018 and beyond.

Reading Time: 4 minutesWe bought our house almost four years ago and we acquired it for ~50% less than the bank said we could afford to borrow. The bank approved us for a $750,000 loan but we ultimately borrowed $355,000 on a total purchase of $376,000 (47% of what we were approved to borrow). Anyone that has read my ten guidelines to rapid ... The post Our Mortgage Will Be Gone ...

Reading Time: 6 minutesWhere in the heck did 2017 go' Do you remember how slow time used to pass by when you were ten years old' I didn’t believe adults when they told me that time speeds up as you get older.
