April was a productive month. I published 14 new articles between my two publications;
- Making of a Millionaire, which focuses on personal finance and
- Impact economics, which focuses on economics and policy
Here are what I think the 3 best things I wrote this month (feel free to disagree with me).
This article was a lot of fun to write. I have spent several years learning all I can about the Financial Independence, Retire Early (FIRE) movement. If you are unfamiliar with the concept, the oversimplified explanation of FIRE is to live below your means, invest as much as possible until your passive income can cover your living expenses.
There is much more to it than that. This article focuses on the 10 things we can control that I believe are most important for those pursuing FIRE.

In this article, I breakdown step by step, how most people could go about saving $19,800 and in the process, change their life.

If I said, I was going to give you enough money to change your life what number jumps into your mind? $1 Million…
Thanks to you all for taking the time to read my writing and look forward to discussing even more interesting topics in May.
