  1. Congrats Steve on getting picked up by Business Insider. That’s so awesome!!

    I also enjoyed Chris’ article on how to avoid the DIIP (dopamine-induced-impulsive-purchase) over at Money Mozart.

    Looks like I have even more to read though. Thanks for the great roundup!

    1. Thanks Michael, appreciate the comment! Yup, lots of good material in the personal finance world this week. Seems like every week, bloggers are putting out gems! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I think one of the things I love most about the pf online community is that everyone’s take is a little different: everyone has a different philosophy, different goals, and a different writing style, and what you get as a result is a pretty cool variety of posts and some great conversations. I feel really lucky to have stumbled upon this community earlier this year. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thanks Sarah – I completely agree, the different perspectives that we get to read about every week is definitely what makes this community great. And, the fact that we all support each other in our goals of financial independence and early retirement makes being a part of this whole group of people that much sweeter. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I found your blog through DM’s comment section. It looks like you’re going through your own journey still and my favorite pf blogs are those by individuals. Anyway, congratulations on getting picked up by BI. =)

  4. Congrats on being featured on Business Insider. That’s so awesome. Lots of great articles that you mentioned, gotta read them all. Have a great weekend Steve/

  5. Congratulations on getting featured on Business Insider Steve!

    Thanks for the shout out with our article discussing how we nearly reached our debt free goals. It is uncanny how your time frame and plans are so closely aligned with ours. Next year at this time we both will have something to celebrate!

    We look forward to enjoying the best Mexican food in Phoenix with you and Courtney soon.

  6. Just saw your article on Business Insider, congrats ๐Ÿ™‚

    And looking at the comments in that article, it seems the majority of the population is not ready to retire early yet. People just love their ignorance ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thanks Stockbeard – Yeah, I like reading the comments though mainstream publications when the topic is early retirement. They are generally very negative and hateful, and it’s largely because so many out there oppose lifestyles that are different from their own.

      It’s sad, really. But, thanks for reading!

  7. Congrats on the Business Insider article! Your history sounds pretty much like me, except I spent my money on other useless things besides cars :).

    Love the Friday Feast. It’s great having a big plate of the best of the PF web handed to me!

    1. Thanks Miss GF – appreciate the words of encouragement! Keep yourself hungry towards the end of every week and I’ll keep trying to cook up something delicious for you to read! ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Congrats on the BI article. Self reflection is a hard thing to do for many. People often don’t like what they see, so they don’t look. Also a very solid list there, I read a few of them this week esp Our Next Life they have been killing it.

    1. Thanks Andrew, I agree about self reflection being tough to do, especially when you interpret the writing of someone else to be “peaching” another way of life that you clearly did not choose. And yup, Our Next Life definitely has been killing it. One of my favorites!

      1. Aw, you guys. Maybe it’s because it’s Friday and I’m exhausted from work and travel, but you just made me get all choked up. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for that wonderful validation.

        And THANK YOU Steve for putting together such a great list of informative reads every week. You do our community a great service!

  9. Thanks for the mention Steve!

    Congratulations on the pickup from Business Insider! These Friday wrap-ups are fun to see what’s going on around the financial blogosphere. It’s great to see people planning their financial futures. Friday the 13th wasn’t so bad: Another day of work = more money for the future.

    1. Morning Seeking Saturdays – appreciate the kind words. And I agree, that’s a good way to look at it. Another week of building up the stash to retire on a little later in life!

    1. Ahh the rest of my comment got cut off. Totally happy for you that BI picked up your post – I love it! I have to say I read that post on Young Adult Money and I too loved it. Making goals a game is seriously a cool idea. Anyways – hope all is well!
