Wow. Big changes ahead for me. And these changes have major implications on the rest of my life. At the end of September, I’m relocating to Chiang Mai, Thailand for the foreseeable future. It’s exciting on one hand. Scary on the other. But I’m thinking a lot more about the former than the latter. It’s the...Read More » ...

Investopedia explains volatility pretty well: In other words, volatility refers to the amount of uncertainty or risk about the size of changes in a security’s value. A higher volatility means that a security’s value can potentially be spread out over a larger range of values. This means that the price of the security can change...Read More » ...

Hurricane Irma began to pass through Sarasota, Florida around 10 p.m. on September 10, 2017. While it wasn’t the full-strength storm many had predicted, it still possessed life-threatening qualities which most Floridians took very seriously. In the immediate aftermath of the storm, with many basic necessities in modern-day life (electricity, A/C, Internet, gas) hard or...Read More » ...

I was always fascinated by the nature versus nurture discussion. There must be something innate, within our DNA, about our individual structures that compel us to do certain things. We travel certain paths. We make our individual decisions/choices. Likewise, our experiences must also shape us in some way, giving us some measure of perspective that...Read More » ...

Shopping. Things. Stuff. If there’s a word that comes immediately to mind when thinking of American culture, it’s “consumerism”. Now, I’m not anti-consumerism by nature. If someone wants to go out there and spend a ton of money, more power to them. It keeps the profit machines I’m invested in well oiled. It’s just that...Read More » ...

What does one deserve? What does one not deserve?  It’s an interesting question to pose, just what someone deserves. However, what’s even more interesting to me are the variety of answers that most people in a developed society like the US come up with. While I think human beings are, collectively, a flawed species with...Read More » ...

It’s a fine line to walk between frugality and cheapness. I’ve always tried to make sure that I stay firmly within the realm of frugality, as being cheap is a slippery slope that can lead to someone being miserly and miserable. But what exactly is the difference between frugality and cheapness?  Are they not one...Read More » ...

I’ve noticed something about the English language. It seems that some of the terms that society throws out there are in and of themselves “golden handcuffs” designed to keep people chained to jobs they no longer desire to have. One of the best examples of this is when the word “less” often replaces the word...Read More » ...

I look back on my own journey to financial freedom with great pride and satisfaction, as there was once a version of me who was extremely dissatisfied with his financial position in life. And it’s that dissatisfaction that led to the turning point, as I was motivated to make the change. There are quite a...Read More » ...

Large-cap high-quality dividend growth stocks are kind of my bread-and-butter, both as an investor and a writer. That’s because there’s an element of safety there when you’re investing in the likes of Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) or PepsiCo, Inc. (PEP). These are mega-companies that are unlikely to suffer any kind of business shock that would...Read More » ...
