In the world of Save. Spend. Splurge.

What I liked this week:

VIDEO TED TALK

Bunker Roy talks about starting the amazing Barefoot College

This has got to be one of the funniest, most empowering videos about human ingenuity, passion and feminism that I have watched in a long time and I do not say this lightly.

PLEASE, men & women, take the time to watch it because reading the transcript does not do it justice.

I love it so much, I downloaded it and plan on listening it to it in the future, again and again.

My absolute FAVOURITE section of his entire talk is his rendering of it justice is of picking the grandmother at 16:41.

I actually laughed out loud while walking in the parking lot (scaring people whom I am sure thought I was bananas), and I rewound it, and listened to it at least 4 more times, laughing EACH TIME.

Sherry of Save. Spend. Splurge.

I got out of $60,000 of debt in 18 months using TheBudgetingTool.com. Since then, I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K (savings rate = 85%). I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

    Love that TED talk.

    Just want to make a correction. That haka is Maori, it’s just being performed at a Tongan wedding. But that reason just right there, is why I love our melting pot 🙂

    Here’s a link to the Tongan and New Zealand rugby teams doing their haka before they play. Gives me goose bumps everytime!
