Although there are many things that brought me out to the Philippines (for starters, I have a strong preference/affinity to being around warm weather), one thing that I was hoping to be [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…

It’s no secret that [click to continue…]

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.

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…

On this blog, lately I have emphasized and re-emphasized over and over again the importance of focusing our early FI efforts on accumulating World Class Tier 1 assets. Although this concept may seem simple in nature, you have no idea how easily this is [click to continue…]

Although to a large degree I’m someone who always kind of has enjoyed working hard, I knew within a few years of working in Corporate America that it wasn’t the life for me long-term. When you’re working for someone else and constantly under the microscope, it’s oftentimes not smooth-sailing, and if you’re one of those people who prefers autonomy, there’s naturally going to be a lot of dissonance there with that type of employer/employee arrangement.

I’ve had a lot on my mind lately, as I try and process everything that’s happened this year and attempt to put the past firmly behind me. As mentioned in many posts of late, I recently (finally) eradicated myself free from an absolutely horrible situation in [click to continue…]

Having spent essentially an entire year out of the country, you’d be quite right in assuming that the thought of passive income crossed my mind on a regular basis.

I’m back in the Bay Area, enjoying some good weather and sunshine. In the process of being back home, I’ve been making efforts to reconnect with friends, readers, and basically anyone who wants to talk shop about early FI, travel, and investing.

Just this past weekend, I had a string of meet ups and like always when I’ve been gone for awhile, It takes me time to continue reading at Steemit

Hey everyone, school is now back in session! Yup, that’s right I decided that it was time to do something drastic, so I’m going to be hitting the books again this summer. What do I have in mind? Well, I really do miss the world of engineering oh so much, so I thought I would go “all in” and finally attempt [click to continue…]
