Cool and breezy Yucatan greetings to my dozens of readers around the globe.  These days we’re enjoy the mild November weather here in Merida.  After a blazing hot summer (and fall), it’s a relief to have daily highs of “only” 85 to 90 degrees.  After a great trip in October to FinCon 2017 in Dallas, ...

Paris, France International Day Festival in Merida, Yucatan Warm Yucatan greetings to all my trillionaire readers!  This week I was poking around on my Personal Capital account and found something that I have to share with the world.  As most of you know, I’m usually a pretty easy-going guy, but there is one thing that really spikes my blood pressure.  Any guesses?  Yeap, you nailed it–investment fees.  I especially hate the ...

Beach Trip to Sisal, Yucatan Salutacions a tots els meus milionaris lectors!  Since I haven’t written anything about our finances since last July, it’s time for a net worth update.  Edwina and I have decided to continue tracking our net worth publicly until we both become millionaires in our own right.  (No more of this pathetic household millionaire nonsense!)  In this post, I’m also going to separate our family money and Eduardito’s ...

You Never Forget Your First Love! Like many FIRE (Financial Independence, Retire Early) enthusiasts, I’m a flat-out weird guy full of many strange interests and beliefs.  In the realm of FIRE, some of my bat-guano-crazy beliefs include:  1.) pursuing a 100% savings rate, 2.) frequent job changing to improve financial options, and 3.) teaching in the “boondocks” to maximize financial gain.  In my personal life, my unconventional practices include:  barefoot running, ...

The Best Photo We Could Manage in the Bright Sun! Fall greetings to all my readers out there.  We’re getting into our school rhythm here in Merida now that Eduardito is back in “real” school this year.  Every morning we leave the house at 7:30 so that he’s there before the 7:45 start time.  So far, he’s really enjoying his new school, classmates, and teachers.  With the hope of making the ...

Twisted Ankle in Mexico Here’s a FAQ that many of my readers probably have: “Hey Ed, what about health insurance?“ Oh boy is this going to be a fun topic!  “Deductibles, in-network limits, out-of-network limits, etc.”  Do you feel your health-insurance juices starting to flow?  Yeah, me neither.  I’m sorry to disappoint you, but I’m no health insurance expert.  Like many of you, I hate the subject of health insurance, and I find ...

The Art of the Brick a la japonesa Saluton al ĉiuj miaj milionoj da legantoj!  If you’ve heard any of my podcast interviews (#1, #2, #3), you know how much I love my 457 plans, even my fee-bloated variable annuity 457 plans.  Here’s my list of why you should love your 457 plan:   1.  Contributions Are Tax-Deductible The first thing to love about your 457 contributions is that they are TAX-DEDUCTIBLE.  This ...

Who Likes Big Beers? This Guy! ¡Saludos a todos mis lectores millonarios!  Well, I haven’t really spelled it out on my blog, but the Mills family made the move to Merida, Mexico in August.  So far, it’s going great.  Our apartment is nice, and, most importantly, our son loves his new school.  We plan on staying for the entire 2017-18 school year so that Eduardito can build his Spanish skills.  Edwina ...
