Hunger – You Can’t Teach It

by FI Fighter on January 17, 2018

in Financial Independence, Thoughts

One thing about being a world traveler is that over time you get to build a comprehensive database filled with so many different people and personalities. But no matter where I go, one thing is constant — Everyone desires financial independence.

In other words, “work (by necessity) sucks”, and everyone out there knows that…

However, when it comes right down to it, I would say only a small minority of the people that I’ve ever met have that burning desire and hunger to actually do something about it so that the amazing dream of being financially free can become a reality.

Here are my top investing ideas [click to continue…]

As 2018 gets under way, I will admit to everyone that my focus has shifted slightly away from investing full-time, all the time 24/7. The truth of the matter is — There’s a lot more to life than just making $$$.

Granted, everyone knows the importance of striving for early FI, because in many regards, achieving such a tremendous dream/goal is indeed [click to continue…]

by FI Fighter on January 3, 2018

in Mining Stocks, Update

At the conclusion of 2016, I issued the following top picks for 2017.

Heading into 2017, I was quite bullish on: Birimian Limited (BGS.AX/EEYMF), Critical Elements (CRE.V/CRECF), and Ivanhoe Mines (IVN.TO/IVPAF).

How did we end up doing?

Happy New Year

by FI Fighter on December 30, 2017

in Blog Update

Hey everyone! It’s New Year’s Eve out here in the East and I just want to wish everyone a Happy New Year!

2017 was a pretty epic year (well, I guess for some industries/sectors/investments), but hopefully the party is just getting started and bigger and better things are in store for us all in 2018.

Anyway, I will say that although I’ve now been out in Manila for 3 weeks now, I’m still somewhat trying to get situated… Honestly, I’ve been mostly focused on things outside of personal finance (there’s more to happiness than just trying to make more $$$ all the time), but at some point I seriously need to get back into the groove of things again… As it pertains to blogging, right now I’m experiencing a lot of frustration having to deal with really slow (atrociously bad) internet, and despite my best efforts to hop around town trying to locate a “go to” cafe/lounge/workspace, it’s been more miss than hit so far…

I mean, even in my own apartment, the wi-fi went out for a good stretch of time and I was completely dependent on a pocket wi-fi device that was slower than 56k dial up (if anyone even remembers what those days were like)… which means I was essentially offline more than anything!

With that said, I will be busy over the next few days preparing the next “Thank You” edition, which should be out very shortly… There will be a lot of surprises/changes/shocks so please brace yourselves for something… different.

If you’re not familiar with the whole premise behind the “Thank You” newsletter, please check out this post.

For anyone who has followed this blog for any stretch of time, you already know full well by now that my main focus is on the path to early financial independence… As far as I’m concerned, everything else is just noise… So, again, please don’t be surprised (appalled) by any upcoming “big changes” that I will be making in 2018 and beyond.

As we wind down 2017, I just want to say THANK YOU again to all the loyal readers and friends who have supported this blog for so many years and continue to do so today. I am NOTHING without you great folks, and without you, I would have closed up shop a long time ago… You make everything all worthwhile!

 

All the best for a most prosperous and epic 2018~!

 

Cheers,

 

Jay

So, everywhere I go these days, all the rage is: cryptos, cryptos, cryptos…

Right now, I’m in Manila, and it didn’t take me more than say two weeks upon arriving here before I met fellow cryptocurrency enthusiasts… and I’ve even been invited to join local crypto groups…

Yup, sign of the [click to continue…]

It’s been over 2 years since I got off the beaten path and ventured over to the “dark side”… As it pertains to early FI, there’s not a single soul that I’ve ever met who didn’t want to achieve that… With that said, early FI isn’t easy and for many people the journey from beginning to end doesn’t happen in a linear fashion…

Just speaking for myself, I got to [click to continue…]

One of the great joys of early FI is having the free time to pretty much do whatever it is that you want to do. As readers may be aware, I recently flew out to Manila to escape the [click to continue…]
