Thanksgiving is a major holiday in North America, best known as a time to give thanks for all of life’s blessings.  I couldn’t think of a more appropriate time to reflect on some of the life lotteries many of us have been fortunate to win. Like it or not, there are a few aspects of […] The post How many Life Lotteries have you Won' appeared first on Max Your Freedom. ...

Chances are, you read this blog and others like it, because you’re interested in the subject of personal finance.  It could be because reading about personal finance is your definition of entertainment (guilty as charged).  Or perhaps you’re looking for knowledge to achieve a specific financial objective. Seeking out personal finance knowledge in a deliberate […] The post When was your Financial Awakening' appeared first on Max Your Freedom. ...

How will this impact my family?  That was my first reaction to the newly released details on the proposed Trump tax plan.  Which I suspect was the same reaction for most people. Like any good personal finance blogger, I whipped out my trusty excel sheet and went about calculating the impact.  I wasn’t looking for a deep analysis which factors in all the nuances of our complicated tax code, like deductions, ...

How’s that for a spooky headline?! Turns out financial guru Suze Orman just dished out her latest advice on retirement.  Her big take-away is that everyone should keep working until they’re at least 70 years old. Although my initial instinct was to scoff at this article, I had to remind myself that my financial mindset is drastically different than most people. For someone chasing financial freedom like I am, the prospect of working ...

Hey! This is Ms. LLC, and Max was kind enough to let me write a guest article for him today.  I recently started a new blog, Lovely Life Cents, and I am using this opportunity to showcase my writing a bit. Check out the blog when you get a chance! Student debt is a necessary evil that is crippling graduates out of college left and right. Why would something necessary be ...

You may have noticed recently that my posting frequency has dropped down to just one post per week.  I’ve always posted every Tuesday since the start of this blog, and would often throw in a Friday post for good measure. I have yet to miss a single post for my weekly Tuesday publishing schedule, but publishing more than one post a week has become increasingly difficult. Since this is a relatively new ...

I’ve always been a goal-oriented person.  I like to plan ahead and have a general sense of which direction I’m going.  It’s difficult to become financially independent without being deliberate about certain actions, such as saving, controlling expenses and investing. A critical component of planning is envisioning where you want to be in the future.  For example, when I turned 30, I set out to pay off all my debt before ...

When we tell people we spent 2 months slow traveling during the summer, their reaction has been pretty consistent.  It’s been a mix of amazement and restraint.  I say restraint because they tend to ask “How was it?”, when I feel like they really want to ask “How could you afford it?”. Given that I blog anonymously, the individuals referenced don’t have the benefit of readers of this blog.  You can probably ...

For those of you who may not be aware, there’s actually a conference for personal finance nerds such as myself which happens every year.  It’s usually attended by the personal finance blogging community, and is apparently a big hit. FinCon 2017 happens to be held in Dallas, Texas this year, and although I’ve never been to this conference in the past, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to participate in all ...

Ok, so there are no guarantees in life, especially with respect to financial independence. One of the key ways to create and retain wealth is to invest your hard earned money.  The trouble with investing is that it comes with strings attached, primarily the (reluctant) acceptance of risk.  You’re basically trading peace of mind for that XX% in interest your investments are earning. Investing your money is also a short cut to ...
