    Blogger Savings Rate Index 2017

    Two years ago, I looked for ways to improve our savings rate. As it's one of the most powerful personal finance tool to reach Financial Independence, I wanted to study how the leaders in this topic were reaching crazy figures every month. Hence I created the Blogger Savings Rate Index (aka. #BSRI) in order to get inspired by my fellow personal finance bloggers. Last year was the third edi...

    Classement 2017 des blogueurs de finance personnelle selon leur taux d'épargne

Comme c'est l'un des outils financiers les plus puissants pour atteindre l'indépendance financière, j'ai voulu étudier comment les leaders dans ce domaine atteignent des chiffres de dingue chaque mois. Par conséquent, j'ai créé le classement des blogueurs de finance personnelle selon leur taux d...

    Qu'est-ce qu'un Mustachian ?

    Lors de mon cours d'écriture l'année passée, j'ai eu un devoir à rendre qui a donné lieu à cet article sur comment redynamiser son taux d'épargne. J'étais fier d'avoir réussi l'exploit d'écrire un blogpost de moins de 400 mots, et me réjouissais des retours de mon prof (aka Joshua de The Minimalists... autant vous dire que je n'ai pas été déçu !

    During my writing course last year, I had a homework to do which resulted in this article on how to reinvigorate one's savings. I was proud to have achieved the exploit of writing a blogpost of less than 400 words, and was looking forward to my teacher's feedback (aka Joshua from The Minimalists...let me tell you that I wasn't disappointed!

    Cryptocurrencies as a Swiss investor: which, where, and how to buy them

    Last week, I presented you my experimentation's project about cryptocurrencies with some basic definitions. Being a rookie myself, I then had to face the first questions that any investor has to ask himself, namely: which portfolio to choose, which online brokerage platform to select, and how to buy/store concretely my first bitcoins and other cryptocurrencies? Before I go any further, I woul...

    10 idées cadeaux pour les enfants — autres que des jouets !

    C'est le branle-bas de combat chez la famille MP avec le compte à rebours de Noël qui a été lancé. Les enfants passent des heures à découper les catalogues de jouets, on reçoit de la pub chaque semaine, et on sent la frénésie consumériste monté gentiment.

    Est-ce que Degiro est un bon choix de courtier en tant qu'investisseur Mustachian suisse ?

    J’ai reçu plusieurs demandes de lecteurs souhaitant connaître mon opinion sur le courtier en ligne Degiro qui a ouvert ses portes en Suisse à la fin de l'année dernière. J’ai même été blâmer (poliment hein, on est cool comme communauté) d'avoir publié un avis biaisé ; j'aurais soi-disant écarté Degiro car ils ne proposent pas de programme d'affiliation, alors qu’ils n’éta...

    Back to school: blog in French, local tourism, and a financial milestone reached!

    Here I am, after almost three months of silence. A one-month break in summer can be very appreciable, but a so long break was long and boring because of the lack of creativity. You missed me dear readers! The French translation of the blog is completed! For those who did not follow, and believed that this blog was abandoned, I reassure you that it's not the case! I was simply translating all ...

    Me revoilà après quasi trois mois de silence. Autant une pause d'un mois en période estivale peut être très appréciable, autant un si long break fut long et ennuyeux à cause du manque de créativité. Vous m'avez manqué chez lecteurs et lectrices ! La traduction française du blog est terminée ! Pour ceux qui n'ont pas suivi, et ont cru que ce blog était à l'abandon, je vous rassur...

    The 50 Best-Funded Startups in Switzerland in One Map (and What It Means For The Startup Ecosystem)

    Back in 2012 as I’ve launched startupolic.com, I remember that almost nobody was blogging on the Swiss startup scene. Or most were abandoning the effort after a few posts. Fortunately, this has changed! Today I’m pleased to publish a guest post by Tatjana de Kerros-Budkov, who is currently the Startup Builder at Ricolab Innovation Lab (Ricola), Mentor, and 2x entrepreneur- with one exit un...

  • Should You Write a Business Plan?

    Writing a business plan at the time of the lean startup sounds like a weird idea. No? Many people think that writing a business plan is no more needed. Which is true and… wrong, at the same time! Writing a complete business plan per se is not needed, especially if you: just have an idea; have not done your homework with the Value Proposition Canvas and the Business Model Canvas; are dreaming...

    Win your free pass to FinCon Masters London 2017

    Some months ago, I thought about creating a personal finance conference here in Europe. Something like the FinCon, but on this side of the pond. I wanted to have these inspirational talks. Those that act like a shoot of motivation. The ones that make you fill your "Best ideas ever" to-do list in less time than you need to write an article draft. My other drive was to gather with like-minded p...
