Belated Merry Christmas and Happy 2018 Tax Planning to all my millionaire readers.  Well, it finally happened–on December 22rd, 2017 President Trump signed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 setting off a number of changes to the U.S. tax code.  This means that we now have new tax laws for 2018, and we ...

In June of 2016, I noticed that my physical conditioning was not what it should have been.  I had just finished two years of teaching at Coffee High School in Douglas, Georgia, and I realized that I needed to start exercising seriously again.  Later that month, in an attempt to recapture the glory, I decided ...

¡Saludos a todos!  For most people, the word “millionaire” conjures up a mental image of a hot shot living a flashy lifestyle with big cars, bigger homes, fancy gourmet meals, endless travel, and pockets hemorrhaging $100 bills.  As crazy as that image might sound to you, for many individuals that’s the life of a “real” ...

What’s more American than hamburgers'  Not much.  Most of the world considers the humble burger THE typical American meal.  Sure, it’s not haute cuisine, but I’d wager that half the world (excluding India) enjoys a good burger now and then.  Well, if the hamburger is an indication of Americanness, my son might be Captain America ...

Like it or not, there’s a new administration with big plans in Washington, D.C.  The Trump administration finally released their tax-plan proposal, and if the experts are correct, it has a good chance of passing.  After finishing my Free Money! 2018 post, I shifted gears and began researching how the Trump plan would impact our ...

Cool and breezy Yucatan greetings to my dozens of readers around the globe.  These days we’re enjoying the mild November weather here in Merida.  After a blazing hot summer (and fall), it’s a relief to have daily highs of “only” 85 to 90 degrees.  After a great trip in October to FinCon 2017 in Dallas, ...

Warm Yucatan greetings to all my trillionaire readers!  This week I was poking around on my Personal Capital account and found something that I have to share with the world.  As most of you know, I’m usually a pretty easy-going guy, but there is one thing that really spikes my blood pressure.  Any guesses'  Yeap, ...

Salutacions a tots els meus milionaris lectors!  Since I haven’t written anything about our finances since last July, it’s time for a net worth update.  Edwina and I have decided to continue tracking our net worth publicly until we both become millionaires in our own right.  (No more of this pathetic household millionaire nonsense!)  In this ...

Like many FIRE (Financial Independence, Retire Early) enthusiasts, I’m a flat-out weird guy full of many strange interests and beliefs.  In the realm of FIRE, some of my bat-guano-crazy beliefs include:  1.) pursuing a 100% savings rate, 2.) frequent job changing to improve financial options, and 3.) teaching in the “boondocks” to maximize financial gain. ...
