Lately I’ve been a bit busy with Springtime and other life activities outside of blogging so I haven’t been able to get any completed articles up for you lovely folks. As such, I wanted to share a link to an article I wrote that the folks at Choose FI were kind enough to publish on […] The post The Wealth Building Triangle appeared first on Aardvark Advisor. ...

Back in January, my wife and I went down to Florida and attended our first Camp FI. After we got back, I wrote about our experience and mentioned that I was looking forward to going to similar events in the future. Little did I know that I’d be back for more, just 3 months later… […] The post Camp FI 2- Mid Atlantic Boogaloo appeared first on Aardvark Advisor. ...

Rich soil that is! Today, I’m mixing it up with a compost-post. This isn’t all that related to finances (although you can save or make money by composting), but I want to breakdown all the reasons why making your own compost is awesome and show you how we’re doing it. If I can jam as many compost […] The post Get Rich with Compost appeared first on Aardvark Advisor. ...

This is the era of the side hustle. Since time immemorial, people have worked second jobs when they wanted to put some extra money away, develop new skills, or accomplish something more fulfilling that wouldn’t pay enough as a full time career (that’s not even to mention the people that need to work a second […] The post Let Hobbies be Hobbies appeared first on Aardvark Advisor. ...

Today is a great day because I get to brag about how much of a badass my wife is. You can’t beat that. This is the story of how she took more than $17,000 of debt and in a short 16 months, crushed it until it was gone forever. It was back in the halcyon […] The post How My Wife Crushed $17,000 of Debt appeared first on Aardvark Advisor. ...

Just about a month ago, I had the opportunity to meet Scott Trench and Mindy Jensen at Camp FI Southeast. This was great for one because they’re awesome, friendly people, but also because it was a nice opportunity to pick their (expert) brains a little bit about the real estate world. I’ve never owned real estate (always […] The post Book Report: Set For Life by Scott Trench appeared first on Aardvark Advisor. ...

At first, I wasn’t even going to write a post about this because I didn’t want to contribute to the noise, but I… can’t… take it anymore! It’s time to get a little rant-y. So, let’s do this. In the last couple weeks the stock market has dropped fairly rapidly. The S&P 500 was at […] The post Can we all stop freaking out about the stock market' appeared first on ...

For some reason I always find myself wanting to start off articles or speeches with a disclaimer, so here’s a quick one, since I can’t help myself: This is an article I’ve meant to write for a while, but have mainly held off because most of my readers are already familiar with the topic. Nevertheless, […] The post Financial Independence- The Best Thing Money Can Buy appeared first on Aardvark Advisor. ...

This year I decided that I was tired of just passively absorbing information from the various Financial Independence (FI) blogs and podcasts on the internet and that I wanted to actually get involved. I’d reached a point in my path to FI where most things were on auto-pilot and I felt like by getting more […] The post My Camp FI Experience appeared first on Aardvark Advisor. ...

This experiment started on December 1st and lasted for the whole month, through New Year’s Eve. I gave it the (arguably, fairly terrible) name of “Make TV Watching Hard.” The plan was simple: move my TV down into the basement so it would be harder to watch and I could avoid binge-watching. I’d then be […] The post The “Make TV Watching Hard” Experiment Results appeared first on Aardvark Advisor. ...
