Around the Web

Quick post today to let you know about some of the other places I’ve been popping up around the web:

  • The Mrs. and I were interviewed on Farnoosh Torabi’s So Money podcast . I used to be terrified of interviews, but not anymore. We had a great time chatting with Farnoosh. Listen to it here.
  • MMM was my inspiration for blogging and more importantly, caused a course correction in my life: Hello FI, good-bye job! It was a thrill to write a post about my electric bike for his blog.
  • The core of my nest egg was made with real estate. Without flipping houses, I wouldn’t be a millionaire today. I wrote about it over at Investment Zen recently.
  • Last weekend, I met up with Jim Collins and the Physician on Fire (PoF) in Wisconsin. This was the first time meeting the PoF and he went straight for my heart by bringing me beer. He even brought some of his own including one made with Sour Patch Kids (it was surprisingly good!). Check out my Christopher Guest Post on his blog.

Thanks for the memories Jimmy C.

  1. Just listened to the podcast! Loved the line about “I can’t do this until I’m 62 or 65 or whatever age people retire”. I had that exact same moment at work and did the same thing you did when I got home that night. Might be interesting to study those “trigger events” and how they totally turned out to be a good thing leading us to FI! If they never happened, 65 may have totally been a reality.

      Hi Vicki, thanks for listening to the podcast. That was loads of fun.

      And 62? Arrgh. I can’t believe that some people actually do that. Ugggh!

  2. Hello Mr1500,
    *I knew I wanted to ask you something but forgot what exactly.
    I found your blog via MMM and was enspired. Thanks a lot for that 🙂

    * I wanted to talk with you about your electric bike, but probable use will postpone this conversation until March, cos I’m definitely wanna build an electric one when I’m in CO

    • 1500 says:

      Hey Russian Guy, I’m glad that we met! When you make it to CO, I can help you out with the bike.

  3. Hahaha, bravo for conquering the fear of interviews. I get super bashful and that would be terrifying!

    And duuuude the electric bike post is how I found your blog. I’m still trying to cajole Mr. Picky Pincher into building me one of those things.

    I’m definitely checking out the real estate post. Mr. Picky Pincher and I have been twiddling our thumbs trying to think about passive income during early retirement.

      I’m glad you found me!

      “I’m definitely checking out the real estate post. Mr. Picky Pincher and I have been twiddling our thumbs trying to think about passive income during early retirement.”

      Real estate is a great way to go. Flipping isn’t so passive and requires a certain temperament, buy you can make a load in a short amount of time if you know what you’re doing.

  4. My-my, aren’t you getting popular these days Mr. 1500!

    Schmoozing with Jim Collins. Posts on MMM. Podcasts with Farnoosh. The entire internet now bends to your will.

    Congrats on the success!

    Boy you are getting popular nowadays aren’t you? Also noticed that you get mentioned a few times on the Reddit FI forum. Totally awesome!

    Will have to listen to the pod cast during my commute.

  6. That was a nice little Saturday. A little Tough Mudding, a couple minor injuries, soothed with the help of shared beer with new friends.

    While I did bring beers, including The Sour Patch Kid (my rhubarb wheat fermented on 28 oz. of the namesake candy), Mr. 1500 brought more beers for me to take home, leaving me in beer debt to the 1500s. Did you catch that towering beeramid I tweeted yesterday?

    I had the Elevated IPA from La Cumbre yesterday. It was elevating.

    The 1500s are everywhere these days, good for you guys!
    I loved the podcast and how you teach money to your kids with “if you want this, think about it and we can come back tomorrow”.
    It’s very interesting to hear what methods others have used to teach their kids about money. I’ve read somewhere that the ability to delay gratification was one of the best predictors of financial success.
    What is next, a TV show? 🙂
