The Friday Feast ~ the 1st of December

  1. Steve, As a new subscriber, I have found your blog informative. However as a 55 y/o on the verge of retirement I have seen some of the post above proof the point I have been making to my 24 and 25 y/o kids recently. They only know of good financial times. Never seen 30% drop in the market that will take 8 years to recover fully. Never seen 20% interest rates on mortgages. Never seen 20% unemployment. Yes these events can be survived as I am proof of that. But my point is in these situations debt is a killer, there is no “good debt”. It becomes an anchor preventing wealth accumulation. Anyway that’s my old man rant, Keep up the good work. I plan to begin my early retirement next year. I will see you on the other side.

    1. Thanks Don! Debt is huge. Huge, huge, huge. It’s so much easier to weather negative economic conditions without a bunch of debt, no doubt about that. And yup, I’ll see ya!

  2. Best of luck on the beginning of a new life. I’m sure you and Courtney will manage to muddle through. Haha. And thanks for the reading suggestions. I especially like that you shouted out Accidental Fire. He’s an great addition to the FI community. Cheers.

  3. I hope your right about 2018. I’m coming off the two best years financially to date (2016 and 17). I find myself looking for the more financially difficult year on the horizon. Its been far too long since 2008… Though perhaps the side hustle is a way to prepare…

  4. Thanks so much for the shout-out man, I really appreciate it! I am new on the block but far from a kid, trust me ๐Ÿ™‚

    So many of the established bloggers have been really cool to me in helping me get started, it’s a great group of people!

  5. Hi Steve,

    I am just here for the pictures ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Your pic seems so familiar. Is that pic in Seattle Washington? This year we stayed in a hotel in front of the ferris wheel in Seattle Washington prior to taking a cruise to Alaska. It was a great vacation and had a good time walking to the many stores along the pier.

    1. Thanks Adam! That picture is from Seattle, but I didn’t take it. It’s a stock picture I grabbed somewhere to use in the post. Visiting Seattle is on the top of my list.

  6. Great Friday Feast Steve! Lots of great posts to read here, and looking forward to see your 2018 hustles!

    What do I need to do to get on the Friday Feast? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. Dude! Thanks so much for including Money is not Taboo. What an honor, for shore! Sure enjoyed hanging with you and Courtney at FinCon. SO looking forward to Orlando. Y’all will be there, right?
