Christopher Guest Post: Get Money Got Money

Get Money Got Money

Welcome to the latest Christopher Guest post. Today’s lucky guest is a young man who caught my attention with a guest post entitled What Hiking 700 Miles Taught Me About Money and Life. I’m a big fan of walking, but WOW! That is one long walk. I first saw the post on Pauline Paquin’s Reach Financial Independence, and learned that the author, Brian Groener, has a site of his own known as Get Money Got Money. The recent college grad has wisdom well beyond his years, a fact that should be quite evident as you wade through the proceeding paragraphs. […]

Christopher Guest Post: Mr. Tako Escapes

Welcome to the latest Christopher Guest post. Today, we feature Mr. Tako, a young man who runs a killer tako stand with the best guac retired early in his thirties with a multi-million dollar net worth. Like me, he has a couple sons that he cherishes. Unlike me, he decided to leave his day job when his second son was born, whereas mine will be in grade school when I have decided I’ve had Enough. Having started his blog about the same time as me, he’s got more than 18 months worth of quality posts on his site, a number […]

Christopher Guest Post: My Money Wizard

Christopher Guest Post MMW

Welcome to the latest Christopher Guest post. Today’s interview is with a young man who took I-35 north from Texas to the great state of Minnesota, where he has found success in both life and blogging. His writing has been featured in lots of places that mine hasn’t, like Yahoo!, MSN, Business Insider, and Forbes. He’s a millennial in his late twenties with a six-figure net worth and thousands of readers. When I was in my twenties, I had a decidedly negative net worth and struggled to get friends to read my e-mails. Do you hate this guy as much […]

Christopher Guest Post: Senior Resident

Welcome to the latest Christopher Guest post. Today’s guest post is the “Resident Sensei” of his site known as Senior Resident. Despite the name, the good doctor is no longer a resident, but is an attending radiologist in sunny Honolulu, Hawaii. Like me, he was initially anonymous to the public, but he has since revealed his identity as Walter Nguyen, MD. Dr. Nguyen was kind enough to answer my inane questions in great detail and I think you’ll enjoy the banter between us. Although we haven’t met in real life, I hope to remedy that, perhaps within a year or […]

Christopher Guest Post: Big Law Investor

Welcome to the latest Christopher Guest post. Today’s distinguished guest has been blogging for nearly a year. He has crushed his debt and put out a number of great posts on the topics of investing, debt payoff, taxes, and more despite his busy day job as a lawyer. A what?!? How did a #$(* lawyer sneak in here? Does this site have no criteria? No shame? Well, to be fair, he doesn’t chase ambulances. He wasn’t the guy handing OJ the little gloves. He’s not John Edwards reenacting the birth of a cerebral palsy patient from the fetal perspective. Read on […]

Christopher Guest Post: Ten Factorial Rocks

Welcome to the latest Christopher Guest post. Today’s guest is Dr. TFR, Ph.D. or if you prefer, the author behind Ten Factorial Rocks. You may be asking yourself, what kind of rocks are those? I remember sedimentary, metamorphic, and igneous… but factorial? In this case, the idea is that the mathematical function known as 10! (ten factorial) is awesome. It rules. It rocks. The number, which is equal to 10 x 9 x 8 x 7 x 6 x 5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1 = 3,628,800. That’s how many dollars the engineer might like to have […]

Christopher Guest Post: Family Money Plan

Family Money Plan

Welcome to the latest Christopher Guest post. This is the second Q & Eh to come from north of the border in the question and answer series. Today’s guest is Andrew of Family Money Plan. Andrew is a hockey-playing, big-smiling family man with a plan. He paid off his mortgage to become 100% debt-free and is doing his part to help others do that same. Let’s see what the good man has to say, eh?   What’s a Christopher Guest post?   Inspired by Nigel Tufnel, the character portrayed by Christopher Guest in Spinal Tap, I took Mr. 1500’s ten questions, and amped them up to eleven.

Christopher Guest Post: ESI Money

Welcome to the latest Christopher Guest post. Today’s post is a page turner from a veteran blogger and recent early retiree. His latest opus is the site ESI Money. That’s Earn Save Invest. Easy enough. The former corporate president is a man physicians can identify with. He didn’t retire at 28 on a shoestring budget, but rather at 52 with a healthy 7-figure portfolio. Read on to learn more about the man, and if you’re willing to share your e-mail address, he’ll gladly share with you his free e-book: Three Steps to Financial Independence. Can you guess what they are?   What’s a […]

Christopher Guest Post – Green Swan

Welcome to another in the growing series of Christopher Guest Posts. Today’s guest is the one and only JW from The Green Swan, a healthcare investment banker who reached a net worth of $1 million as a 30-year old, the same age at which I had a net worth of zero. J-Dub probably had the smarts to pursue medicine, but he followed the money instead. Now, he dabbles in both finance and healthcare with what might sound like a dream job, but has its own demands, more of which will be outlined below. What’s a Christopher Guest post?   Inspired by […]

Christopher Guest Post: Smart Money MD

Welcome to another in the growing series of Christopher Guest Posts. Today’s guest is none other than Smart Money MD. The ophthalmologist has been blogging for nearly two years, with archives going back to March, 2015. A closer look shows the first post on St. Patrick’s Day, and the busy doctor posted every day for a month straight! Those posts look lonely, sitting there with no comments, so if you’re feeling charitable, head back to the March or April 2015 archives and share your thoughts on a post or two.   What’s a Christopher Guest post?   Inspired by Nigel […]

Welcome to another in the growing series of Christopher Guest Posts. I encountered Johnny Johnson’s interview over at 1500days.com, and he had some interesting insights on money and its place in our world. His background is very different from mine, but he’s got some solid ideas.   He expressed an interest in participating in this series, and I expressed an interest in not saying “No” to a personal trainer who teaches people how to beat other people up.

I’d like to thank Big ERN from Early Retirement Now for taking the time to share a part of his story and answers to my many questions. You’ll learn all about him shortly.
