We have officially passed the halfway mark for the book tour! This past week was definitely different than anticipated, but I had a great time hanging out in Seattle with J from Millennial Boss and her husband, Doug. Unfortunately, Grant was back in NYC for most the week, but we were able to reconnect in Calgary for the book tour event.… Read More

By the middle of the week, we had made it Portland and started to catch up with friends and host some fun meetup events. Unfortunately, toward the end of the week, Grant was forced to fly home for a family emergency while I hung out in Seattle.… Read More

Another week on the road and we’re still having a great time. This community has made so many amazing events possible and we could not be more grateful.

This post was first published on RockStar Finance. Some minor edits have been made to accurately reflect the timeline.


I was 7 months into my first corporate job and I just couldn’t take it anymore — the long commute, the unfulfilling work, the lack of autonomy. This couldn’t be what the next 40 years look like, could it?Read More
