2018 In Review

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

Conviction Ideas – Bonifacio Global City (BGC)

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,

Real Estate Investing – Don’t Underestimate How Bad Things Can Get

Real Estate Investing (REI) is a super popular path many folks take when they try to get to early FI. If you buy correctly, sure, you could have a field day and make more gains than you ever dreamed possible. Unfortunately, it isn’t always that easy to

Real Estate Investing – Identifying and Searching for Future Class A/Tier 1 Properties

So, lately I’ve been having lots of epiphanies when it comes to Real Estate Investing (REI), and more than ever before, I’m holding firm in my newfound belief to focus entirely (pretty much) on sticking to Class A/Tier 1 properties.

Naturally, because I made my life-changing gains via Bay Area Class A/Tier 1 rental properties, I always like to use them as an example… But astute readers

Real Estate Investing – Learning from My Mistakes

Real life is all about learning from our mistakes, growing/improving, and if we are lucky enough to be able to do so (which I am) share our insights/wisdom/knowledge gained with others. Unfortunately, the problem with the above approach, right off the bat, is admitting to ourselves (and to the world) that we even made a mistake to begin with…

I’ve been blogging since 2012, so you don’t have to tell me twice, and I know full well by now that attempting to be upfront and honest with people is not gonna win you many fans/followers…

For the most part, people aren’t interested in the truth when it comes to early FI… Instead, they want you to feed them a happy fairytale where the entire ride is smooth sailing and there are never any major bumps in the road…

I hate to break it to you, but sometimes, it is very necessary to dwell on and reflect

New Beginnings… Again? (July 1, 2018)

To say that it’s been a rough and tumble 2018 so far would be a pretty accurate assessment of how things have been going for me… As readers may recall, I’ve thrown out multiple hints in recent posts about some of the struggles (beyond aggravating frustration) that I’ve been dealing

Peace of Mind – True Freedom

On the journey to early FI, there is such a HUGE focus on accumulating wealth and building up our cash flow, net worth (or both) every step of the way… There is absolutely no denying that “money talks”, and for many of us, we won’t have the courage and conviction to walk away for good from our day jobs until we have amassed enough F U money…

For so many of us, quitting our jobs and
