Get Rich with…The Process

I’m going to let you into a secret.  Most people don’t want to be rich. Oh, I know they say they do.  But humans are complicated and they say lots of things. Generally, if you want to know what people really want, look at what they do rather than what they say. What most people […]

Now that’s what I call Financial Independence! 10

The Escape Artist is back once again in the guise of a music critic from the NME…armed with earnest prose, tortuous metaphors and psycho-babble to review more classic songs about financial independence.

Unlikely…you say? Well..let’s be honest, the odds are pretty slim…what […]

Financial independence is for everyone

One of the funny things about financial independence is hearing the objections made against it.  Most are pitifully thin.

Errr…hello???…if you’re not a high earner, its even more important not to piss your money away on ridiculous spending. […]

The secrets of peak performance
