The Financial Velociraptor blog opens with a mighty roar!

The goal here is to help as many people as possible achieve “Financial Escape Velocity.”  That is the financial position where it is no longer necessary to let another person, a “boss” control your time.  For some, that means full retirement.  For others it means something not exactly like retirement but with a great deal more personal freedom than most people ever achieve.

The three critical actions to achieving FEV are: 1) Increasing income 2) Cutting costs 3) Capital accumulation.  The first posts over the next several months will focus on path three, capital accumulation as I demonstrate how to build a portfolio of securities that is resistant to market turbulence while still showing strong performance in growth and income.


Never miss another opportunity to devour prey!

    Hi FV,

    Congratulations on starting your site. I read your story and see a lot of parallels with my own life including savings a lot due to tough cards being dealt to me and family early on, and desire for financial independence. I am not quite there yet, but am working my way towards it.

    Either way, I wanted to say hi, thank you for stopping by on my site and wish you good luck in your journey!

    Thanks for stopping by DGI. Love your site and its singular laser focus. It can be hard to stay disciplined and I think your “do one thing well” approach is a good way to keep emotions out of your thinking.
