I should have known better. When I walked out of his hospital room on that snowy day in April, I suspected that I wouldn’t see my dad alive again. That turned out to be almost true – we did make it up eight hours before he passed that Sunday night in August, but he was […] The post Yes Virginia, You CAN Negotiate a Funeral (Even with the Body in the ...

Sometimes it takes death to rethink life. My dad died in August. He was one of the most respected civil engineers in Florida in the 80s and 90s; he was a master bridge player; he had a keen eye for stocks with great potential. (Although I thought he was crazy for being so high on […] The post Reigniting the FIRE appeared first on Fire Ready Aim. ...

While I do want to retire early, we also like to travel. What better place than NYC? It hard to beat when you can stay at a nice hotel for 2 nights, fly round trip, eat at high-class restaurants and spend $500 (I know we spent too much, but we’ll do better next time). But […] The post NYC travel is so cheap – our $500 trip appeared first on Fire ...

One of my biggest problems is stopping before I get started – and even when I started journaling, I stopped quickly. Why? Analysis paralysis and the fear of doing something wrong. And I was afraid of journaling wrong. Stupid, right? I thought so too. So I started journaling again, and for the past month or […] The post Journaling to tame the monkey brain appeared first on Fire Ready Aim. ...

Well, website is sketched out, domain names purchased, and a bit of market research done. Untether: in process. Honestly, I was hoping to have this launched by now, but with a big project due at my day job at the end of September, I’m happy where I am. So why not push to launch now?

While flying back from our $500 NYC trip in Feb 2016, I read in the NYTimes about people who make hundreds of thousands per year selling goods FBA (Fullfillment By Amazon) through retail arbitrage (buying low in a retail store, selling high on Amazon). I thought to myself, how hard can this be? In typical […] The post Is selling on Amazon FBA a good way to untether income from time? ...

Fire Ready Aim is the perfect name for this blog. Mostly because I go off and start firing and get focused later. But I do get there eventually. But I haven’t done a good job working towards untethering my income from my time. It’s time to focus on passive income. I’ve bit a bit unfocused […] The post Passive Income – Untethering Income From Time appeared first on Fire Ready Aim. ...

New Year, but NO resolutions. Yet still I have plenty of guilt. Guilt always attends the New Year, because whenever I make resolutions they always fall short. Failure. Ergo, no resolutions this year. So why is the guilt still kicking in? Here’s a partial list: Not keeping a close enough eye on monthly spending. Not […] The post No resolutions. More mindfulness. appeared first on Fire Ready Aim. ...

I bought a fancypants camera right before Christmas last year. For my wife, of course (you can see where this is going, right?) My wife had been talking about how she wanted a better camera for capturing our daughter, so I did the gentlemanly thing and bought her a Nikon D7000 from Bestbuy. It was […] The post Arbitrage, expensive hobbies, and financial independence appeared first on Fire Ready Aim. ...

So many goals. So many things to think about. FIRE. Raising good kids (ours are 3.5 years and 6 months). Eating better. Gardening. Simplifying. Montessori ideas at home for the kids? Investing. Keeping active. Keeping track of where our money is going. Working a full time job. Working a bunch of side gigs. Decluttering. installing […] The post I need to do less…oooh, look!
