Thank You Edition #4 – In Progress Now

I’m still going through a lot of stuff (doh!), and as I’ve mentioned in recent posts, there are still a buncha moving parts and things going on behind the scenes that need to be resolved before I can exit out of some terrible investments gone ummmm even more terribly wrong (lame sauce).

Anyway, as I work to navigate myself out of a very difficult situation (in other words, I will no doubt walk away losing a boatload of $$$), I’m gonna try and remain positive and focus on stuff that is not only fun (for a change), but also much, much, much more fulfilling. One can only stomach so much soul-sucking suckitude before you feel the need to turn the page and re-engage with stuff that actually makes you happy!

So, now is about the time I get back to writing the next issue of the Thank you Edition, which is episode #4.

Learn more about the Thank You Edition newsletter, here.

I’ll be sharing with readers some investment thoughts and a big picture update to my overall portfolio.

Will try and get the issue out before next week (hopefully).

 

Thank you all very much for your patience.

 

Cheers,

Jay

Right now, I’m back in the Bay Area, and I’m astounded on a daily basis just trying to grasp how expensive everything has gotten in such a short period of time… You know, when I walked away from my job for good in early 2016, a six figure salary in the $130-150k/year range used to be pretty impressive…

These days?

I’m hearing on a regular basis from some of my former colleagues and friends that they are now pulling in [continue reading…]

Part 2 – Converting Net Worth into Cash Flow

Screen Shot 2015-08-10 at 9.37.10 AM

A few years ago, I wrote a blog post titled — Converting Net Worth into Cash Flow. I think that article was somewhat controversial then, and perhaps it still is to a large degree today… The reason being? Well, when it comes right down to it, when we are talking about the subject of early FI, without question, the popular consensus and narrative out there across the blogosphere (and other media outlets) is that at the end of the day, cash flow reigns supreme…

Now, I’m not gonna go ahead [continue reading…]
