Maybe it was the overwhelming nostalgia or the momentary lapse of judgment, but I made an extravagant purchase this month. In terms of cost, it’s less than the time I bought a new (unneeded) work bag, or Frye boots. However, it’s more than my monthly transportation costs and a sizable chunk of my miscellaneous expenses budget. What did I do' ... The post The Extravagant Purchase I Do Not Regret appeared ...

Earlier this week, I had two casual meetings with soon-to-be graduates of my alma mater. It was a Spring Break program designed to have students interact 1:1 with alumni. Despite no clear agenda, there were undeniable similarities between both conversations. We spoke candidly about gender discrepancies in business, and financial tips when starting a new job. It was a stark ... The post Find Your Circle – #WomenRockMoney appeared first on ...

In 2017, I published a post with a glorious title: The secret to saving money is to trick yourself into being poor. Traffic-wise, it was one of my best posts of the year. I submitted the post to the Rockstar Rumble because it was a piece that I was (and am) proud of. To my delight, I made it through Round ... The post There are no secrets to saving money appeared ...

One day back in 2013, one of my friends announced that he was going to work for a digital tech publisher reporting on cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin had been in the news a few times by then; the Winklevoss twins had just invested $11M in the digital currency, but it was trading well below $300 then and no one really knew what it ...

Shortly after getting hooked on the idea of financial independence and retiring early, I set my own goal, to reach FI in 10 years, with a fund of $700K. That was a year ago, meaning my deadline is now just 9 years away. In Mint, I even set up a goal, which visually reminds me every time I log in ...

A couple months ago, I put together my first gift guide, low budget gift ideas for a variety of individuals. One thing I noticed after publishing was that there wasn’t enough of a focus for one of the most important people in your life. In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, here are some ideas on how to impress your loved ... The post Practical gifts for your significant other appeared first ...

It’s 8 AM on Friday, January 12th, and I’m logging into Mint to check out my paycheck. Cha-ching! The first paycheck of 2018, and it’s a big one. I said to myself, “Wow, I can’t believe I’m so lucky.” Then it hit me. Over the past two years, I’ve remarked numerous times to others how lucky I am. But that’s ...

As careers go, I’ve started mine out on a very traditional route: entry-level analyst at a mid-sized company, moving up a clearly defined hierarchical ladder, promotion by promotion. I’ve always been someone who works extremely well inside the box. If anything, this blog is the first time I’ve ever creatively dipped my toe outside what I thought to be “normal ...

I can’t believe the year is over! It’s flown by; I don’t know if that’s a result of getting older, or because it’s just been a crazy year. A year ago, if you had told me that I would be closing in on a six-figure net worth, growing my income by 20%, and generally crushing my financial goals, I would’ve ...
