So, you read some of the posts about investing and now want to give it a try? Problem is, it seems like there’s not enough money flowing around to give it a real go. To help out, I’ll be publishing a series of posts throughout this week and next to help figure out where the ... ...

For those that are new, this is where I update and post my net worth each month. I do this to track my progress towards retirement by 40 and to show how significant 1 month can be, even if it looks like a blip in time. October is usually a pretty great month. The colours ... ...

Welcome to Sick Finance! I’m still not sure how to describe this thing. The best I can say so far is I’m seeing it as an open letter to my kids for when they are ready to go on their own. You see, by the time I’ll be 40, both my kids will be adults. ... ...

Sometimes, you don’t know what to do, so you wait. Not sure what major to switch into for the third time, whether you should move across the country for that new job, of if you should finally start that business? Just coast for a bit.

So you are finally ready to start? It’s not as scary as it sounds, and like everything else, taking the first steps is always the hardest. Once the ball gets going, it’s actually pretty easy. It’s the laziest way to make money after all. It’s not only the laziest way, it’s also one of the ... ...

One day, you’ll die. That’s a fact. A fact you might not want think about while flexing in front of a bathroom mirror trying to get that perfect picture that’ll cause all of your social media followers to ogle at your godly physique, but it’ll happen regardless. Your time here is finite; it won’t be ... ...

Well, look at that, apparently things are speeding up! I first breached 100k at 25yo in May 2017. That celebration only lasted a month though. I bought a house shortly after and my net worth quickly dipped because of all of the expenses. It took until October 31, 2017 to breach that satisfying threshold again, ... ...

Investing should be dull. At least that’s how I approach it.  Nothing beats the boring but consistently successful strategy of long-term investing in low cost funds. Sure, it’s not as thrilling as jumping on that bitcoin or pot stock bandwagon, but you can’t argue with success. Of course, I’ll never beat the market. But I’m ... ...

This is the first post of a series that will look into the nuts and bolts of just being an adult. This stuff is not taught in school, and parents don’t always teach it either. I know mine didn’t. I’m hoping this will help pass some knowledge to my kids. The advice you’ll find here ... ...

Gotcha! This site isn’t about money at all. I just made it look that way so I can get your attention. Sure, having a whole bunch of cash is fun and all, but the real drive of this site is separating the idea of happiness from the idea that buying expensive and useless things will ... ...
