New Year Tesla Resolutions – Autopiloting Financial Life

How does Tesla and Personal Finance go together?   Traditionally they don’t. But stick with me here.     As a Christmas present to myself, this year, a Tesla now resides in my garage for 2019. Most personal finance blogs would shame this type of consumption, but I’m of the abundance mentality and this doesn’t…

Leverage understanding and execution

I’m not a conceptual fan of leverage.   But the more I read. It grows on me.     I’m fully aware that statistically real estate has generated wealth like virtually no other asset class (see stocks) in the last 100 years. The reasoning behind both single and multifamily makes sense, no matter what apple…

Value Investing Life – Warren Buffett Thinking

I despise “Frugality”. But LOVE value. You should too.     I know roughly 90% of the personal finance world preaches frugality, but I think that word has such a negative connotation attached to it that it needs to die off ASAP. The word has been abused so much that it’s frankly indistinguishable from “cheap”,…

Very few people value confrontation. It is extremely valuable.   Do you remember the last time you had a confrontation with another human being that could be viewed as negative? Surely you do, it’s impossible to live life without some type of friction. Maybe it was at work, a simple disagreement with a colleague. At…
