I do the same thing week in and week out. It’s not particularly difficult, and since it’s part-time, it never feels overwhelming. This isn’t burnout, but at the moment, I’m feeling bored and uninspired and not into it. Which is why […]

In today’s post, we’ll discuss what the safe harbor rules are […]

Surprisingly, designing a bridge or building has similarities to constructing an investment portfolio. We’re going to discuss some engineering concepts for a bit. Bear with me, because I will connect each and every one back to the investing world. Nobody wants this to happen.1 Imagine you have to design a structural beam.

Three weeks ago, I drove from Portland to Colorado Springs to participate in Camp FI, a weekend retreat for people interested in financial independence and early retirement. Under normal circumstances, I wouldn’t drive this distance. It’s a 1300-mile trip that takes at least twenty hours to cover. Or, if you’re me, it’s a 1400-mile trip that takes 23 hours of driving spread over two days. But, in case you haven’t noticed, we’re in the middle […]
