My Favorite Articles
“House sitting is something you read about all the time…but I don’t know many people who do it full time like we do. It’s allowing us to save a house deposit in approximately a third of the time it would take us otherwise.”

“I’ve spent a lot of money on things you’re “supposed” to spend money on (including that first home purchase) and lived to regret it. You do you and don’t let anyone tell you differently!”

“The mass of people in the developed world hemorrhage money every month on cars, house payments, alcohol, cable television and eating out—and they do it without thinking.”
“Let’s say your Verizon bill is $100 a month. You would continue buying shares of Verizon until their dividends equaled out to $100 a month on average. At that point, your bills are essentially free.”
“No one likes their time wasted. It’s a universal annoyance. So some advice applicable to everything you do: Make your point and get out of the way.”
My Favorite Podcast
A conversation with Ray Dalio, one of the most successful investors of all time. Ray discusses in depth his philosophy of “pain plus reflection equals progress”.
That’s all for this week, thanks for reading 🙂
