Hi dear readers, Yes, two consecutive posts on our financial update. After this one I plan to publish another personal post (about the flat move), then it’s time to put my hands on some technical topic 🙂 NOTE: brace yourself. This is by far the longest post on this blog. ...

Hi dear readers, I know. We’re in 2020 already, and you read it right: this is Q3 (July-September) 2019 quarterly update, not Q4 (October-December). That’s how much I’m behind. Q4 2019 has been a tough quarter, where I experienced the real scarcity of time. I returned to work full time, time ...

Hi RIP friends, Marry Christmas and happy new year 🙂 Welcome another boring post about my investing paralysis. A couple of weeks ago I told you about my unmotivated November 2019 escape from stocks. If you missed my last post, please take your time to read it before this one, ...

Hi RIP friends, I knew you would have noticed. Some of you wrote me emails, some commented on random posts. One went as far as sending me a PM on facebook. It didn’t go unnoticed, that’s the beauty of transparency! What am I talking about? This: Before moving on, I know ...

Hi RIP readers, This is a quick update on my 2020 Q1 coaching experiment: I’ve selected the 6 participants, and already notified them! Which means that if you didn’t receive an email along the line of “congrats, you’ve been selected!” it means… well, that you’ve not been selected. And no, ...

Hi RIP friends, Two weeks ago I launched my free coaching project for early 2020, knowing that the remainder of 2019 would be ultra packed with a move (about which I’ll write soon), child care acclimation for Baby RIP (with accompanying infections and sicknesses, first of which didn’t took long ...

Hi RIP readers, this is a quick follow-up to my Friday’s post about a coaching experiment I’m going to run in January-March 2020. I received 30+ applications in 2 days (so far). I wasn’t expecting this! I’ve read all of them. I started replying (just acking for now) more or ...

Hi dear reader, haven’t you dreamed about being RIP’s guinea pig all the time? Today is the day your dreams become true! “RIP, what the hell are you talking about?” I’ve spent a good portion of 2019 talking with people, helping people and – more importantly – getting help from  ...

Hi readers, Yes, I know, I’m behind schedule and you want to know how my new work experiment is going. Please be patient. Life has been dramatically intense in October: new job, family, babyRIP being sick every other day, traveling for work, meeting RIP readers live, probably (finally) changing apartment ...

Mr DIP: “It’s easy. You just send them an email with the following content: ‘bye, I’m quitting’. Got it? Done? Do you want me to write it for you?” RIP: “I know how to quit… But I told you: the doctor gave me another month. Should I say no to ...
