Hey everyone!  As promised, I have an announcement for you today!  But before I get to it, let me say this:  If you belong to one of the following 3 groups, this is for you! 1. You dream of escaping the 9-5. 2. You’re a side hustler or wannabe side hustler looking for ways to increase your income. 3. You’re simply a fan ...

I’m flexing my frugality muscle this month, and it’s got me feeling pretty pumped!  In fact, I think it’s starting to go to my head. For the uninitiated, I decided to kick off 2018 with a no-spend month.  For the second straight year, I’m not spending a dime on non-essential items during the month of January. I’ve titled it my Month of Zero. ... The post IF FRUGALITY WAS A MUSCLE GROUP, I’D BE ...

“What are you putting off out of fear'….I’ll repeat something you might consider tattooing on your forehead:  What we fear doing most is usually what we most need to do.  As I have heard said, a person’s success in life can usually be measured by the number of uncomfortable conversations he or she is willing to have.” – Tim Ferris ...

Sometimes I wonder why I do the things I do. In the fall of 2016, I wrote a post about a budgeting trick I came up with a few years previous, as a means of disciplining myself to break the paycheque-to-paycheque cycle.  I named it the ‘5-day freeze’. 5-DAY FREEZE It involves making a very simple switch in your spending ...

It is official. I’ve decided to kick-off 2018 with a side hustle experiment.  When the idea first came to me a few months ago, my initial thought was “hmmm, I like this, but it should probably wait.  Maybe I’ll tackle it sometime next year…summer 2018 might be ideal.” It almost found it’s way onto the list of “someday” projects.  But ...

Recently, I read a fun, yet thought provoking article by Steve Adcock, who blogs over at Think Save Retire.  In it, he posed the question:  What would you put on your personal business card' More specifically, in Steve’s own words, “What do you DO' What makes you tick' What would your personal business card look like…and say' What’s your personal job ... The post WHAT’S ON YOUR PERSONAL BUSINESS CARD' (with apologies ...

“Man, what can we do' Think about it…we’re stuck!”    M’s words hit me hard, like a figurative punch to the gut.  I shook my head slightly, lowering it into my chest.  But this time, something had changed.  Instead of the frustration that had become all too familiar,  I felt a new emotion rise up.    “No, no…NO!  I won’t ...

What happened'  November started so well.  Week one, I took time off.  My wife and I went away to a cabin in the woods for a couple of days, which was transformed into a winter wonderland with the season’s first snowfall.  It was magical.  Returning home, I had the most productive of weeks.  I played full time blogger, released three ...

When I was a kid, about once a month, my brother and I would walk to get our hair cut after school.  Our hairdresser’s name was Sherri, and together with her business partner, they owned a small salon on the main street.  Next door to the salon was a long standing ice cream shoppe, and next to that was the ...

Hey everyone!  Allow me to introduce a concept that I like to call ‘Exponential Frugality’.  It’s a simple but different way to calculate the $$$ you’ve saved from being frugal. I hope you find it helpful, or at the very least, thought provoking.  Enjoy!  You may or may not consider yourself a fugal person.  After all, we all hold varying levels ...
