Hey guys, thank you for checking out the site!  I hope you enjoy the blog and I appreciate the opportunity to help you in your own financial journey.  I am a husband to an amazing wife, a father of 5 (soon to be 6) children and my passion is personal finance.  With as many children as we have, I know first-hand what it’s like to balance the necessities of everyday life, without neglecting our plans for the future.  We are well on our way to early retirement, and I’ll be scheduling that vasectomy appointment next spring, just to be sure our plans don’t get de-railed 😉

I started this blog as a way to share the financial lessons and tips I have learned over the last ~18 years and document the last half of our path to early retirement.  I hope the posts you read here will help you and keep you entertained at the same time.  Don’t hesitate to shoot me a message or comment on the posts with your questions.  I’ll do my best to respond and keep writing as long as you all keep reading!


The title of this blog was selected to represent a way of life and approach to personal finance that is different from the herd…  an alternate approach which leads to better results, a happier life, and financial freedom that most people never take the opportunity to experience.
