Free Solo Movie Premiere: Rock Climbing Vs Financial Independence?

Free Solo Movie Premiere: Rock Climbing Vs Financial Independence?

A few weeks before FinCon 2018 I watched National Geographic’s Free Solo movie premiere in NYC. I couldn’t help but relate how close the movie’s philosophies on rock climbing were to the financial independence movement’s beliefs. The star of Free Solo is Alex Honnold, who ascended the 3,200 foot rock wall of El Capitan in Yosemite without any gear — a feat probably akin to shooting a basketball from the half court line 1,000 times in a row. What Is…

Eat 2 Meals/Day For $160/Year: The Six Flags Season Dining Hack

Eat 2 Meals/Day For $160/Year: The Six Flags Season Dining Hack

I’ve always loved finding things that were so grossly mis-priced. It is an extremely fun past time. So, when I went to Six Flags and saw sign after sign for a “Season Dining Pass”I crunched the numbers.

Fincon 2018 Recap: Memories + Magic (Dang, This Is Long!)

FinCon 2018 was so incredible! I made so many relationships with people I only knew online and it was simply a phenomenal experience. This started off as a short post, but meandered into an incredibly long piece of content. I’ve tried to make sure I’ve included everyone I met, but I’m sure I’m missing a bunch of people. If we chatted and I forgot you here, please don’t take it personally! I was majorly sleep deprived this week. Please send…

Olivia worked in finance and wants you to learn the secrets of financial independence. She believes there are so many ways to monetize your life and make money doing the things you're already doing because so many companies offer free money.

The average savings account rate is 0.1%. The big banks have incredibly low savings accounts rates. CIT Bank offers a 1.75% savings account. You can open an account with just $100 and no monthly fees or charge . Tired of being charged fees and getting peanuts in interest at your current bank? Open a CIT Bank savings account in less than 15 minutes online.

If you have a car, Rideshare apps allow you to pick a direction you want to go twice a day, so you can get extra money going somewhere you were driving to anyway at least twice a day. Get a $300 sign-up bonus with Lyft.

One of my favorite ways ways of monetizing my life is via credit card bonuses with cards that give you cashback or rewards. Check out our review of the Chase Sapphire cards, which give you at least $500 in cash or $625 in travel credit.
