Financial Independence Is For Everyone (Part 2)

Back in 2018 I wrote a post called Financial Independence is for Everyone. I thought the article was pretty clear but I see from the internet that some misinterpreted it. Perhaps they just read the title and not the actual article. Perhaps they read what they wanted it to say. Perhaps I didn’t write it […]

Get Rich without…Self-Sabotage

I’m not sure if you noticed but I made a pretty big claim in my last post: This brings us to one of the great taboos of personal finance which is that most people are self-sabotaging. This inconvenient truth gets swept under the carpet in the earnest and somewhat prissy tone adopted in most personal […]

Here I find some bloke making some pretty bold claims…saying he retired age 30 and that anyone can get rich by following some simple steps. Well […]

Get Rich with Simplicity

There are a couple of posts on this site that underpin all the others. You can think of them as the foundations on which everything else is built.
