My Guest Post with Even Steven Money

Gen Y Finance Guy Interview Leave a Comment

Today’s post is a throwback from four years ago. From time to time I like to republish guests posts I wrote on other blogs in order to memorialize them here on my blog and also to reflect, to see what has changed and what has remained consistent with respect to my goals and philosophies. The Even Steven Money blog disappeared for a while, but the blogger recently brought the blog back online and it reminded me of this post. I have annotated it with my thoughts and updates from the current day perspective [in blue and in brackets]. Who are you and tell me about your reason for setting a goal of FI? My name is Dominic and I am …

Chasing FIRE Interview #8 – Millionaire Doc

Gen Y Finance Guy Interview 2 Comments

Today we continue our Chasing Fire interview series (<- click the link to see all interviews in this series). I have always enjoyed reading and listening to interviews to learn how people got to where they are, so as to learn from the successes and failures of others. Each individual’s story and path is unique, and we can certainly gain insights from those generous enough to share their stories. My job as the host is to find interesting people that will inspire and motivate you, as well as myself. I plan to share one high-quality interview per month (maybe even less frequently) and the questions may change over time. I anticipate this to be an iterative process and I would love your feedback in …

The Super Secret Interview I Did For the Tim Ferriss Book “Tribe of Mentors”

Gen Y Finance Guy Interview 4 Comments

I’ve been keeping a secret from you guys for a long time and I just can’t keep it in anymore. Tim Ferriss published his latest book, Tribe of Mentors, over a year ago. He asked to include me, and as you can imagine, I was humbled, excited, and scared as hell. If I said “yes,” then what would happen to the anonymity I have maintained all these years? If I said “no,” would I regret it for the rest of my life? Tim’s reach is millions of people vs. the thousands I get to reach with this blog every month. Could this be my Oprah Winfrey moment, when I got touched by someone mighty enough to transform my whole life overnight, and …

My Interview With Mr. 1500

Gen Y Finance Guy Interview 5 Comments

An oldie but a goodie! This was originally published February 7th, 2015 on the 1500 days blog but doesn’t appear to be live anymore. Maybe I made Carl mad??? Good thing for the Wayback Machine, because I can still give reference to the original publication. If you want to see the original post and comments, you can visit the archive here. I have provided a few updates below in [blue within brackets.] (1) What is the worst financial mistake you made? When I was 20 and very green and naïve to the whole finance thing, I agreed to buy a house as the “credit partner.” The deal was that I would get paid $1,000 per month for letting this “investor” …
