Hello, it’s been a month since I posted and I figured I would let you know what is going on in my financial and personal life.  School has started, my kids activities are all in full swing, and my basketball season has started for my coaching duties.  So, I haven’t been bored!  I have also […] ...

Over the year and half of writing at Monkey Free Me I’ve posted 120 personal finance posts. Had almost 10,000 unique readers to the site from 156 different countries, and have written enough to complete two small books or one large book (See the stats below).  I love writing here, but as I evolve in […] ...

Ephesians 5:16:  “Making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.” People struggle everyday with money.  I recently went to a church program, with my wife, that was set up for couples to improve their marriage.  We aren’t having any problems, but I thought it can’t hurt to put Christ in our […] ...

This school year I have the privilege of teaching seniors, in high school, Economics.  One of the basic concepts is opportunity cost, and this is tough to teach a 17-18 year olds that it even exists in their lives.  So, my example in class was one that most could relate to.  I told them to […] ...

Netflix is a wonderful company!  I’ve been using Netflix since I was in college and mailed DVD’s back and forth at Texas State University in 2002!  It was even more amazing when they began letting me download or stream a few titles, and now I can take Netflix anywhere!  It has saved me when my […] ...

A big part of the FIRE community is trying to get to retirement as soon as possible.  Quicker can be quick enough for many people out there.  Retire at age 30 and never have to work again!  Retire in 10 years, instead of working for 40 years in a cubicle!  Well, my path is a […] ...

The Murphy’s are always just around the corner watching your home, your life, and deciding when is the right time to show their faces at your doorstep.  If you have never met the Murphy’s you will one day!  The Murphy’s come from Murphy’s law: Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.  I have officially […] ...

Right out of college I had to find a job, quick, to support my wife, and we found out that she was also pregnant after a year of marriage also!  So, I took the first job I could find and decided that I would hold on to that job while looking for a better job.  […] ...

I feel that if you’re a good planner then you are planning your life all the way to the end.  I read a book entitled Die Broke and the idea is to plan your life in a way so that the last check you write is for your funeral.  This got me thinking about leaving a […] ...

I’ve been struggling lately with my goals motivation.  I have always been a goals and dreams guy and the problem I have now with my motivation is I am running out of goals and dreams.  I got the motorcycle I wanted in my childhood.  I traveled to Europe with my family and with just my […] ...
