November 2018

2018 has been one of the tougher and more tumultuous years that I’ve had to deal with in my life, up to now. For the most part, things got off to a roaring start in the beginning of the year when pretty much all assets across the board were skyrocketing to new highs: clean energy stocks, general equities, real estate, and especially [click to continue…]

In my last post, I mouthed off about how ridiculously expensive I feel like many World Class Tier 1 real estate assets are selling for in today’s market…

Now, please keep in mind, real estate is a very broad asset class and I know how [click to continue…]

Real Estate Craziness

by FI Fighter on November 29, 2018

in Real Estate Thoughts, Real Estate Updates

It’s no secret to long-term readers of this blog that I got to where I am today because I was lucky beyond belief to have been fortunate enough to have been able to gobble up World Class Tier 1 real estate assets when they were discarded to the bargain bin back in 2012-2013, and to a lesser extent from 2014-2015.

Anyway, the thing about me (as you may or may not know) is that I try and be as [click to continue…]

Work Ethic

by FI Fighter on November 28, 2018

in Motivation, Random Updates

One observation that I’ve made while traveling all over the globe is that no matter where you venture, you’re going to be able to locate very good people and make friends… if you choose to do so. Furthermore, I’m somewhat blown away by the work ethic and drive that so many people out there possess, folks who are [click to continue…]

One of the greatest compliments that I think I can ever receive in life is if someone who really knows me tells me the following:

Jay, I’ve known you for a long time now, and you’re always the same dude.

The above comment might not seem like much, and albeit it can read rather vague if there’s no context behind it, but for a simple dude like myself, that’s really all I want out of life.

Let me elaborate a bit…

Dont Be Afraid to Chase Your Dreams

in Thoughts, Thoughts

When I reached my mid 20s, you could say I reached an important crossroads of sorts. I’m not sure if I was going through the moment of arriving at my own version of “quarter life crisis” but many things didn’t feel right, and I felt like I was trapped in life.

Granted, on the surface, many things seemed to be going well [click to continue…]

2018 In Review

by FI Fighter on November 19, 2018

in Health, Mining Stocks, Real Estate Thoughts

2018 has been a most… interesting year for me. In life, I believe there are 3 main aspects that we all seek to maximize in order to be happy: Wealth, Health, Relationships.

Wealth.

This first key component hasn’t really gone as expected for me this year… It’s only with the [click to continue…]

When it comes to investing, in my heart of hearts, I truly believe that I’m an equal opportunity employer. In others words, I dig both Deep Value Investing as well as Hyper-Growth Investing. Although I don’t always get it right (c’mon give me a break I’m a very flawed human being, after all), I have been fortunate enough in my lifetime to have made “life-changing gains” via both the aforementioned routes.

In short, Deep Value Investing and Hyper-Growth Investing both work!

The reality, though, is this — Markets are cyclical, [click to continue…]

People Are People

in Financial Independence, Post FI, Thoughts, Thoughts

I’ve been a contrarian my entire life… Wait, you might want to scratch that and just outright say OUTCAST, which might be a better term to use… I mean, ever since I was a little kid, I kind of always knew that I was different from the majority of my peers…

From my earliest memories, I remember another little kid telling me [click to continue…]
