I am continually inspired by people who take the time to write to us and share their story of how they overcame their own personal hang ups about money, life, or whatever to get on the path to FIRE. We’ve all been there. I myself grey up in abject poverty and suffered from a brief addiction to purses. But some people had it even worse. Some people were actual addicts. ...

Hello again and welcome back to the Millennial Revolution Investment Workshop! New readers, please click here to start from the beginning. Last week, we took a look at WealthSimple’s user interface. Since the entire point of Robo-Advisors is to be user-friendly, I was expecting a pretty, easy-to-understand flow and in this case, WealthSimple didn’t disappoint. But to be honest, pretty much every Robo-Advisor is user-friendly. A Robo-Advisor that opens up ...

Hello again and welcome back to the Millennial Revolution Investment Workshop! New readers, please click here to start from the beginning. So today we’re going to take one of these Robo-Advisors out for a test drive. Sound like fun? That’s because it is! Our Robo-Advisor that we’ll be evaluating will be WealthSimple. Why WealthSimple? I’ve actually been following WealthSimple for a few years now and have really been impressed by ...

  Hello again! It’s been awhile, hasn’t it? We first did the Investment Workshop in late 2017, and since then I’ve been inundated with emails saying how helpful it’s been (thanks everyone!), but one glaring question people keep asking me is: What about Robo-Advisors? So I thought now would be a great time to address this by adding a section about them to the end of our existing Investing Workshop. ...

So over the break we opened up our email and saw this: Hello and Happy New Year! I’m very much enjoying your book, Quit like a Millionaire, and have a question regarding Chapter 10, specifically on the ability to purchase index funds without a fund manager. Was this set up and purchase of the index fund referenced in Chapter 10 conducted within or outside of Canada (i.e. under “How to ...

Continuing on from last week’s 2019 spending roundup, I thought I’d take today to give an update on the earnings side of our 2019. How did our Blog/Book Do? I’ve said this before, but I never expected to make any income once we retired. I’d used the POT score (for those of you with college-bound kids or are looking to switch careers, use this score to evaluate and compare degrees) ...

    2019 marks the 4th year of our retirement. This means we’ve been out of the workforce for the same amount of time it took us to get our engineering degrees! And for the first time since we’ve been sans-paycheque, our net worth up by 26% in just 1 year! We made MORE money this year than our highest combined income year as engineers. Say what? Did we go ...

As my last post of 2019, I wanted to say Happy Holidays to everyone. Hope you had a great year, and here’s to 2020 being even better! Now, at the end every year, in between celebratory champagne and the New Year’s Eve countdown, Wanderer and I always love to reflect back on everything that happened during the year. And boy, do we have a lot to reflect on. So much ...

As we come up to the end of the 2019 rolls to a close, it’s natural to get reflective this time of year about all the stuff that’s happened over the last twelve months. And as I do I realize HOLY CRAP has a lot of stuff happened! Let’s take a look back, shall we? The Longest-Ever Government Shutdown Last Christmas seems forever ago, but let’s not forget that 2019 ...

Hi y’all! Can you believe it 2019 is almost over? Wow. It’s been another crazy year. So, before the year comes to a close, I’m going to tackle a reader case or two. Without further ado, here we go!   “Your gross/net annual family income: Wife (Software Dev.): $120k gross Me (Accountant self-employed): $399k gross (pre-expenses) Total Gross: $295k Net: $238k (Doesn’t feel like that much!) Your monthly family spending: ...
