Reading Time: 8 minutesIn the personal finance blogging community, we bloggers can disagree on a lot of things. However, one thing we tend to all agree on is what constitutes reaching the all-coveted status of Financial Independence. Many, including myself, believe in the 4% rule (as a guideline), that defines Financial Independence as a portfolio of 25X your annual “burn rate,” which is the amount of money you spend annually to ...

Reading Time: 7 minutesThe moment we have all been waiting for has finally arrived! The Rich Uncles real estate crowdfunding platform originally launched as a California based fund that invested in Commercial Real Estate, but was only available to California residents only. Then it launched its national fund, which opened up the investment opportunity to many states, but not all 50. That is…until now! I found Rich Uncles back in 2015 when ...

Reading Time: 12 minutesAnother month ticks by, and with it brings another financial update. Based on the prior two posts I published, you will notice that April was a time for reflection and self-correction. It’s easy to get swallowed up and consumed by the wealth building game. I had to remind myself not to get so consumed building wealth that I forget to build a life. I also had the epiphany ...

Reading Time: 7 minutesI discovered the video below more than three years ago. It really stuck with me, and I knew there would eventually be a time to share it in a blog post. That time has finally arrived. To place this in the context and history of GYFG: I started publicly sharing my monthly financial reports about three and a half years ago (January 2015). In that first monthly financial ...

Reading Time: 4 minutesI have many character flaws. This I know. But there is one thing I’m really good at – finding the positive in every adversity. I have found this skill, this ability to extract the lesson or silver lining, to be invaluable in my journey. It’s required me to develop a keen sense of self-awareness and an open mind. It allows me to convert, rather than accept, the cards ...

Reading Time: 13 minutesHere is part three in this Warren Buffett series (part one & part two), covering a few of the sections I have pulled out from the last 50 years of Berkshire Hathaway Letters to Shareholders, which I finished reading in October of 2017. Although the entire 50-year series was filled with a ton of business and investment wisdom, all the pieces that I pulled are from the past seven ...

Reading Time: 12 minutesWow! I can’t believe that 25% of the year is now behind us. Has anyone figured out how to squeeze more than 24 hours out of a day? Or extract more than 31 days out of a month? Every crossed-out calendar page is a tangible reminder of how fleeting time is. Truly, it is THE most scarce and valuable resource we have, way more precious than money. ...
