The Friday Feast ~ the 21st of August

  1. Thanks for the shoutout! The party scene in the CBB post reminded me of the anecdote in the Millionaire Next Door, about how when the author and researchers invited millionaires to the focus groups, they assumed they would want caviar, fois gras and vintage Bordeaux wines… when really they wanted sandwiches and sodas. 🙂 We’re so programmed to think of “rich” a certain way, and frugality feels in conflict with that for some reason — when in fact they completely go together.

    Have a great weekend, you guys!

    1. Ha! I haven’t read that book but we’ll be picking it up the next time that we hit the library. Just finished reading Your Money or Your Life. Another good one.

      Thanks for reading, and happy Friday! 🙂

    1. No problem, CBB – thanks for the excellent blog post. It’s true, the mindset of the REAL rich is very, very different from the mindset of those who simply have a large income – the FAKE rich.

      Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Thanks for the shout out and comments in the last couple of days. I have been following Jason for years and being mentioned in the same article as him is humbling! 🙂

    I think I have a “bromance” going with you guys! It is wild how close our paths are in our early retirement journeys. I am definitely jealous of your progress since you will have accomplished ER at a much earlier age than me. D’oh!

    1. It’s stunning, in fact, how similar our plans were/are, and I appreciate your blog very, very much and the perspective that you have on this early retirement business.

      Thanks for dropping by – I’ve subscribed to your blog so I’ll be reading eeeeeverything from now on. 🙂

  3. Steve,

    Thanks for including me!

    And I’m down with the bromance that Bryan mentions. It’s great to be a part of a community full of like-minded people to help motivate each other to greater accomplishments. 🙂

    Enjoy your weekend.

    Cheers!

    1. Most welcome, Jason – thanks, as always, for the thought-provoking post. Your story was just so darn similar to mine that I saw a lot of myself in what you were describing.

      I love this community. It’s incredibly supportive.

      Thanks again, Jason.
