The TRUE cost of procrastination. OUCH.

I’ll get around to it.   There will be more time next week.   It’s really not that big of a deal.   Have you ever found yourself saying any of those things as it relates to personal finance?   I have, and for some reason today as I was doing more 2019 planning the…

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…

The best part about being FI that people don’t talk about…

It’s not what you think…. The gift that FI gives.       If you follow the blog you might have noticed I’ve had an unusual gap in posting… It’s not because of losing interest or being busy, rather it’s because of being injured in the weirdest way. Back injuries are common in the world, we…

Ending Wealth Value, or “EWV” for short. It matters.

First thought you may have after googling those terms is “What is he talking about”?   I’m going out on a limb and saying that most people will google something they don’t immediately know what is, and in this case – that won’t help you. You will see the definition for “EMV” which stands for…

Vision & Execution – Opposites Attract

Visionairies are known for changing the world.     When I say “Execution” you may think of this guy…     Both of those are fair assumptions. But what if I told you Steve Jobs only succeeded because he was a GREAT executioner?   It is the same in almost every business that has made…
