You’re money mindset will determine how successful you are financially. Psychology plays a huge roll in how we deal with money.

The First Step to Financial Success is Honesty

It seems that honesty, and the truth, are becoming less and less a part of our society. I’m sick of there being a money taboo. Everyone thinks they can get away with being in debt for items they don’t need because we aren’t talking openly about our financial situations. If you can’t afford something, that’s perfectly okay. Being able [...]

Stumbling My Way To Success

So, I’ve got a confession to make. I’m not that great at anything! I don’t know the first thing about writing. I know just enough about IT to fool my employer into thinking I know what I’m doing. I’ve made every mistake imaginable when it comes to selling things on eBay. The list could go on and on. I [...]

Your Negative Mindset Could Be Your Biggest Expense

I recently started reading a book I heard about from Mr. Money Mustache - The Magic of Thinking Big. The message behind the book is that your life is impacted by the way you think. I see why MMM loves the book so much as it’s a great pick me up and an eye opener on human thought. From [...]

Is Social Media Costing You Money?

I don’t think humans were ready for social media. It’s probably had one of the biggest social impacts in history. It’s changed the way we communicate, do business, find dates and the list could go on and on.  Being able to keep in touch with your friends around the world is great, but there are definitely some downsides to [...]

Is it Wrong to Shop at Thrift Stores When You Aren’t Poor?

Over the past couple of months, I’ve come across this question a couple of times. “If you can afford to buy things new, shouldn’t you avoid shopping at thrift stores and leave those for the less fortunate?” It’s something I hadn’t thought much about until people mentioned it.

Don’t Trade Happiness for Christmas Gifts

It’s that time of year again. Time to go out and buy gifts for everyone and have the pleasure of hearing the same 5 songs played on repeat in each store. I can’t believe Christmas is already here again. It seems like time keeps going by faster and faster.   As I’ve gotten deeper into the FIRE movement this [...]

Treating Life Like a Video Game Could Have a Huge Financial Impact

I grew up playing video games and if you’re a millennial like me, you probably did too. While I don’t play them anymore, they were a big part of my childhood. I’m sure plenty of time that I spent playing them was wasted, but I know there are some cognitive benefits to playing video games. For one, video games [...]

Persistence Is The Key To Success And Wealth

Something I find myself doing from time to time is looking back on my life and wondering where I’d be right now if I hadn’t given up on things. I don’t think it’s very useful to dwell on the past too much, but it is interesting to think about how things could’ve gone. For instance, I could’ve pursued a [...]

Why the World Needs More Bloggers

Soon after I started blogging about money, I realized something. I’m not the only one doing this (understatement of the year). There are thousands of people out there writing about money and sharing their tips on how to become wealthy. Due to this fact, I often wondered if there was any point to me doing this since it’s so [...]

Why I Believe in Tithing

The word tithe is mentioned throughout the Bible in multiple places. It goes back all the way to the first book - Genesis. “And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God. And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of [...]
