Financial Independence : come for the money, stay to save The World

Back in 2015, I published a reader guest post called 10 Years Out of The Camp in which “Billy Bow” shared his story and what it had been like to have been financially independent for 10 years. Billy Bow (aka Ian) is a friend and amateur photographer. I follow him on Instagram and was blown […]

How the frog gets boiled in the pan…and how you can escape

As I may have mentioned before, you shouldn’t be wasting your money on “stuff”. But does that mean that all spending is bad? Of course not. I spend money where it has a high return on investment.

Reader: “I can’t believe I’ve gotten away with having Impostor Syndrome”

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 […]
