Hello, my name is Bob. I'm from Vancouver Canada. This is a personal finance blog where I chronicle my quest for joyful life and financial independence.
In 2011, my wife and I had a financial epiphany and started our financial independence retire early (FIRE) journey. Since then, we have amassed a dividend portfolio that generates over $2,100 per month.
