EP078 - No more middle class for you
Words matter. I hear that a lot. But few people realize that removing words from our conversations matter as well. And one term that I think has run its course is middle class. In this episode I want to explore what the middle class is, its hey day, its demise and why it is an impediment to anyone looking to live an unconstrained lifestyle. But also what you should be focusing on to thrive in the future.
EP077 - Free at 27 - Rachel Richards
This is an inspirational episode. I recently had the opportunity to sit down and interview Rachel Richards. At the age of 27, she became financially free after leaving a short lived career in the financial services industry. Her methodology focuses on cashflow generation and smart income, rather than saving millions and investing. She would have told her clients in the financial advisory industry she was in this, but she was not allowed to. So she left, did it herself and now is a best selling author on her story.If you ever thought you were too young or too old to find financial freedom, Rachel's story will prove you wrong.
EP076 - Should I buy bitcoin?
This week no less than 5 people have called me and asked this question... ''Myles, should I buy Bitcoin?''. Well as someone who bought BTC back in 2011 and held it, it has been very good to me. In this episode I'm going to unravel (for the newbies), what Bitcoin and crypto-currency is, why it is important, but also whether I would buy it today.
EP075 - Nomadland - The testimonial to Financial Sustainability
In 2020, I started to hear rumors of an upcoming movie about those that choose to live in Vans & RVs in America. I thought it was some documentary. Well I recently had the opportunity to watch Nomadland - the very same movie, after finding out that it had won or been nominated for so many awards, and in this episode Im going to give you both my review, but also how important seeing this movie is, if you want to do all you can to protect your future and your freedom.
EP074 - So you are thinking of starting a business...
In 2020, we saw an unprecedented number of small businesses closing down due to COVID19. As a contrarian, I have to admit that this is an opportunity for those willing to fill that void. And as more of us have had to work from home, shelter in place, etc., more of us have had more time to think freely and with that we probably came up with some brilliant idea that will change the world. So if you are brave enough to want to go once more unto the breach and start a business, Im going to give you my advice having done that a few times in my life.
EP073 - Rethinking the concept of FIRE
Don't get me wrong - I'm ok with the concept of Financial Independence. But it is a means to an end, and if you think the end is ''retirement'', I think you are doing it all wrong. So in this episode I want to deep dive the concept of why we work, what makes us happy and why separating financial security from life goals has to be the methodology that we start with, rather than the one we end with.
