I’m looking for a few good people/families out there that would be interested in a FREE consulting session on their finances to be broadcast on the Unconstrained Podcast. We'll keep your privacy guarded but if you have been following our teachings and want some one on one advice on implementing them, this is your opportunity. Now I realize that privacy is job #1 here, so we won’t be ...

It wasn’t that long ago, in 2003, when the US invaded Iraq. Oil prices skyrocketed. I remember filling up at the pump in California on a road trip back then, where few gas stations were less than $5 a gallon for regular gas. Well it seems history may repeat. The US is at the precipice of war with Iran, and the threat of rising oil prices ...

Are you ready for the rise of China and the decline of the US empire? We are only a matter of a few years away from the US losing the #1 economic powerhouse position in the world, and that could signal either a long economic stagnation or a fast economic collapse. Are you prepared and do you have a bug out strategy ready to keep your treasure safe? History ...

According to a 2016 study by the Center for Retirement Research at Boston College on the Mortality Effects of Retirement, it is clear that “There may be an increase in mortality risks when people stop work.” This mirrors my own experience with Retirement and underscores the importance of removing the word Retirement from our vocabulary. I was honored to be asked to present “The Art of Financial Sustainability” to a ...

We are ending another decade in human history. Normally there is a positive push into each new decade that comes with invention, creativity, etc. and yet for this new decade there are world meta issues at play that will change how the world will look over the next 10 years. I give you what I see as opportunities that I may be participating in for the next ten ...

I had the opportunity to watch a YouTube video put together by the billionaire investor, Ray Dalio, and I was disappointed by it.  He correctly states the current economic thinking in regards to wealth, but neglects to consider anything to do with the unconstrained.  My review is here in this article. Ray Dalio is a wealthy American billionaire.  You can’t argue with his success in the financial world.  Who wouldn’t want ...

We just returned from a family weekend to Las Vegas and although the shows are incredible and we all enjoyed them, walking down the Strip and being shunted in and out of casinos forces you to see the dichotomy that is Las Vegas and the life of the constrained.There is a running theme with many people that reach out to me after reading my blog articles or listening to ...

I don’t give personal financial advice. But what I will do is to open the kimono, so to speak, and tell you what I’m doing. Maybe history will prove me to be foolish or wrong, or some super genius or something, but I have no crystal ball. What I do have, however, is a sensitivity and observation of what is going on in the world and I use that directly ...

I’m not a fan of the Tim Ferris book, “The 4 Hour Work Week”. It is a flawed method for achieving what people aspire to - a life of abundance with little effort. It celebrates the concept of little work and big rewards, and is no magic formula for life. The fact is the more you give up and outsource the more constrained you are. Let’s ...

When I was 32, I retired. It didn’t end well. This is my retirement story. Take from it what you can. Life isn't experienced in some cubicle somewhere, but the majority of people I talk to who are embracing FIRE (Financial Independence Retire Early) don't really understand what life looks like on the other side of the retirement line and why they might want to rethink ...
