    Thanks for being so welcoming everyone. I had a lot of fun, and am looking forward to next time. I wanted to share where my financial education comes from and hear your thoughts if you get a chance to check these folks out, or maybe you are already familiar. These writers are heavy on reducing expenses/passive market investing, but they all aspire to early FI:

    Now, time to get Rich Dad Poor Dad and start reading up :)

      It's your opinion of course, so do with it all what you may! I would just caution against taking your first impression of him and reducing his views to "being cheap" before reading him, but feel free to anyway :) sorry for the multiple posts - there is a character limit!

    Can't wait to see you all and to hear what everyone is up to and what Andre learned at investor summit at sea. My discussion question for this week's meeting is, "How much money should you spend on your investing education (books, shourt courses, mentor etc.). This could be a single amount at the start of your investing career, an annual percentage of capital, a percentage of cashflow etc."

      Let me ask this in answer to your question. How much did you already spend to "earn" what you do now ? How much would you be willing to spend to be truly financially free and enjoying your life and not living like a monk ? I personally spend A LOT on my education for what I have and continue to. Way more than I did in college. I am also now financially free because of it. I was not and would not have been with only my college education. Something to think about.

    I am so excited for our next meeting. This last week was so intense and I learned so much I want to share with all of you. First I have to share a little saying to prim the engine a little. When you know something is going DOWN in value (dollars) you BARROW as much as you can as fast as you can. When you know you can get GREAT return or appreciation you BUY as much as you can as fast as you can. This simple formula can make you millions. If you don't get it I will show it to you when we meet. Question. How sides does a coin have ? How does that answer tie into my little saying ?

    Smai,
    Thanks for posting these, I had not heard of Mr MM before you mentioned it the other night. I like it!! I think both MMM and rich dad have same nuts and bolts. Save X% of your earned income and invest, getting Y% return until financial independence. My read is that MMM focuses more on maximizing X and Rich Dad focuses on maximizing Y, where both recognize that both X and Y are crucial to success. There are some inherent dangers investing all in the stock market, but if that is the route index funds like you are doing is a good approach. I think Rich Dad (and most of us in this club) would encourage you to at least diversify into real estate, business (not publicly traded), precious metals or other. Look forward to talking more.
