Sometime soon, I’ll be moving most of the Money Boss archives to a new home at Get Rich Slowly. This site will transform into something else — most likely, a static page containing the core content of the Money Boss philosophy. Until the dust settles at GRS, however, I can’t publish there. And I have […] The post Spending and Withdrawals During Early Retirement: A Real-World Example appeared first on Money ...

As I’m sure you’ve all noticed, it’s been a long, slow summer here at Money Boss. I haven’t written much about money — and when I have done so, it’s mainly been about my new house. While it’s true that the house itself has been the biggest barrier between me and writing — it’s been […] The post The Future of Money Boss appeared first on Money Boss. ...

I have some good news and some bad news. The good news is that Kim and I are, at long last, finished with major remodeling on our new home. That means I’ll have plenty of time to write about money again. Yay! (As bonus good news, I’ll probably be writing less about the house. But […] The post The Money Pit appeared first on Money Boss. ...

I’m not the only semi-celebrity J.D. Roth. For more than fifteen years, I’ve been receiving email and tweets and Facebook messages intended for the other JD Roth, the former executive producer of The Biggest Loser — and tons of other television shows. Apparently the other JD Roth has a lot of fans. Actually, I’m one […] The post The Big Fat Truth: J.D. Roth Interviews JD Roth appeared first on Money ...

I have a splinter in my foot. It’s been there for the past ten days, and boy let me tell you: It hurts! While the contractors were working to replace the siding on our new home, they discovered a termite infestation outside the bathroom. Further investigation revealed that the floor under the tub was not […] The post Just Solve the Problem! appeared first on Money Boss. ...

For the past month, my entire life seems to have revolved around repairs and maintenance on the new house. Some days, I’m the one doing the work: shoveling level ground for a planned writing shed, crawling under the house to check for leaks, pruning the overgrown hedges. Most days, however, I’m meeting with other folks: […] The post Financial Freedom Is Time Freedom appeared first on Money Boss. ...

Earlier this week, I published an article comparing a half-ass homeowner to a Money Boss homeowner. While the piece made some important points about maintaining your home, those points were clouded by overly emotional (even petty) comments on my part. This article is a revision of the previous piece with the negativity removed. When Kim […] The post How to Stay on Top of Home Improvement appeared first on Money Boss. ...

I know it’s been quiet around Money Boss recently, but that’s because it’s been a busy three weeks in Real Life. Kim and I spent the latter half of June packing the condo and prepping to move. Last Friday evening, we picked up the keys to our new place. We brought the animals over and […] The post Our New Home: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly appeared first on ...

It’s been a crazy couple of months for me. Since April, most of my time has been dedicated to selling our condo and buying a new home. Now, at last, the turbulent times are almost over. Kim and I closed on the condo last week, and we’ll close on the “country cottage” next Monday. On […] The post The Key to Financial Freedom appeared first on Money Boss. ...

I’ve been frustrated lately with the quality and quantity of my work. I haven’t produced as much here at Money Boss as I would like — due largely to the fact that I’m selling one home and buying another — and what work I have produced isn’t as good as I would like. This lack […] The post How to Do Great Work appeared first on Money Boss. ...
