Playing With FIRE Documentary: A Movie I Will Actually Watch In Theaters This Year

So before we get into the basics of winning with money, I had to share this one. The Playing with FIRE Documentary is coming to my town! 

Okay for many of you that don’t already know what the FIRE (Financial Independence Retire Early) Money movement is, this video sums in up in less than 7 minutes: 

In future posts we’ll explore money concepts like the power of compounding interest and rapidly accumulating wealth to live off of perpetually without further income.

This documentary is important because it is the first I know of that can introduce the masses to the world of knowledge that is already available in other forms like books, blogs, and podcasts. 

You can attend or host your own screening in your town by visiting their events page at If you happen to be in South Florida we’re scheduled for Monday July 8, so buy your tickets before they sell out and I’ll see you there and post a review afterwards 🙂


Who Am I, and What To Do Now that Work is Optional

What would you do if money were no object? If you haven’t already seen the video just go back to my first post. 

It took me over a year of thinking about it, as well as developing my financial literacy when I realized that I never have to work again.

To be clear I would have to severely downgrade our family’s current lifestyle, but having just the bare-bones level of Financial Independence (FI) is immensely powerful = FREEDOM!

You’ll hear about FI a lot in my weekly posts as I teach my kids starting with the basics.


Welcome to the Next Level

America is #1!

Currently we have the most millionaires 

We also have the highest debt with over $22trillion (debt counter) 

We’d rather talk about religion than money, so we don’t learn about it 

How can we possibly change this mess? 

We teach ourselves and then others 

Once a week starting with the basics and build from there
