It’s been a hectic couple of days in Amsterdam after a flat out week of housework, yeah I know this is the exact investing-traveling-freedom lifestyle I always wanted so I can’t legitimately complain. It just beats you up so much, especially when traveling on boats that move around so much negating the idea of sleep.

As you might be able to tell by now we’ve got a decent track record in keeping ourselves honest in the realm of New Years resolutions, be they getting fit, paying off a mortgage, driving through Monument Valley, funding pensions, not to mention becoming FIRE. The lists go on and on but we really love […] The post Life beyond FIRE: Geographical Arbitrage vs Self-sufficiency. appeared first on DIVIDEND NOMAD. ...

Well we made it through our most significant budget test of FIRE, the biggest test of the year being Christmas. If I’m honest I was more than a little concerned about blowing the budget right out of the water since we’re back in the UK surrounded by family who we needed to buy gifts for […] The post “It’s the most wonderful (and expensive) time of the year…” appeared first on ...

For a long time I’ve been of the belief that “oh sh#t” moments and how you handle them tend to be character-building in nature. Life can’t always be plain sailing and every now and then these tests come along to see how well or badly you handle the bad stuff. As you can guess in […] The post House remodeling : Our first “oh sh#t” moment in a while… appeared first ...

Since FIRE’ing myself from my state of burned-out, mentally-exhausted Engineer, in addition to transitioning to amateur schoolboy economist and house remodeler (not to mention professional Slacker) I’ve also found myself unintentionally becoming something of a low-level amateur Psychologist with the only patient being me. This new role pretty much works along the lines of talking to […] The post Uncoiling : Switching off the over-achiever mindset. appeared first on DIVIDEND NOMAD. ...

We made it to our 1 year FIRE anniversary!! After so much initial trepidation, fear and insecurity we honestly didn’t know if we were going to make it this far. It’s been  challenging at times but I feel like our time in Cyprus has definitely made us realize how much we love the Slacker-Nomad FIRE lifestyle and that […] The post FIRE update – Our 1 year anniversary!! appeared first on DIVIDEND NOMAD. ...

When Joe Strummer and the boys from The Clash penned their hit song Should I Stay or Should I Go? back in 1981 there’s probably a decent chance they weren’t talking about their investment in a dividend stock. In our case though the song is really applicable right now regarding our long held position in […] The post LBrands : Should I stay or should I go? appeared first on DIVIDEND ...

Something that I have noticed in the past year is most blogs I have read seem to go to great lengths to discuss how FIRE is only the beginning and that if you don’t carve out a new entrepreneurial direction beyond it then you will most surely grow stale, become bored, brain turn to mush and […] The post Slacker-FIRE : A compelling argument.. appeared first on DIVIDEND NOMAD. ...

Just to start out on a positive note, this has been arguably one of our favorite fall/early winters. By that we mean if you’ve ever had the blues that summer is ending then this pretty much defines chasing it down and keeping it for a few months longer. We really haven’t been able to fault the place for that, […] The post Case Study : Is Cyprus a suitable location to FIRE to? appeared first ...

When I used to watch finance shows on cable TV one particular pundit used  to reach a segment where he’d devote a little time to talking about the  recommended size of a portfolio. This segment usually resulted in me shaking my head in bewilderment when he always made the recommendation of sticking to about 5 diverse […] The post OMI-word…when a 27 year dividend aristocrat cuts its payout.. appeared first on DIVIDEND ...
