Another sighting in this interview with Bill McNabb 40 years and $3 trillion later: Vanguard’s CEO on what has changed and what hasn’t. Unless there is another Jim Collins running around for him to paraphrase.
But that is indeed a different Jim Collins, and one far more famous than I to boot: http://www.jimcollins.com
He is the reason I go by JL Collins on the blog.
Still, an interesting article….
Pat Schmitzer says
Jim, loved the book and earned my F-You money at the age of 41 and stayed home to participate in my kids formative years; now they are in or approaching college. That brings me to my comment. In your book in the topic of DEBT (page 29) you say “Here’s the real kicker: Unlike other kinds of debt, as truly awful as they are, you can never walk away from your student loans. They survive bankruptcy…. Your wages, and even Social Security, can be garnished to pay them.” I hear many stories and news reports to the contrary, including government forgiveness plans after making minimum payments for a set period of years. Many “experts” say that our country’s growing student debt that likely will never get paid off and leave tax payers holding the bag suggests that the claws you mention are not true or there are loopholes that escape us readers.
Your comment and question would be best as part of this post: https://jlcollinsnh.com/2015/03/26/stocks-part-xxviii-debt-the-unacceptable-burden/
If you move it there, I’ll try to help.
Your book is phenomenally simple & specific. The best financial guidance book I have ever read. I’m 32 now and plan to invest in VTSAX as soon as possible and add more over the upcoming years.
Quick question about the investments apps such as Acorn or Stash – what is your opinion on them?
That would make a great 5-star review on Amazon if you are so inclined.
I am unfamiliar with Acorn or Stash, but have handled my investments just fine without them in my life. 🙂
Dear Mister Collins,
Greetings from Belgium, and thank you for getting back to me on my twitter post! I was hoping to get in touch with you on behalf of our investment club (10 lovely people putting the Fun in Funds), to possibly arrange for a meetup. Thank you in advance!
I’d be delighted. 🙂
Ivo Zarnic says
Hi, I’m new to your site but have heard about your writing many times. I’ve clicked on the link above for Personal Capital (also on other pages from other sites) and their website never comes up? can you suggest why this maybe. Just a note I reside in New Zealand, is that a possible reason?
It’s probably a problem on your side. Probably an Adblocker. The links seem to be working fine.

So just checked out your blog again after a long hiatus. Political ads on here now – I don’t have any issue with it, but I find it quite interesting who “the algorithms” think I need to see an ad from!
Marge Gross says
Thank you for your user friendly investment advice! Your blog has been a tremendous source of hope for me to envision retiring next year. Since reading your site a few week ago, I m ready to fire my American Funds broker who’s a good friend but I’d rather he make money off someone else.
So my husband and I were laid off last Feb and have 90k in Fidelity 403B.
We also have 235k in American Funds, 150k in banks.
How would you advise us to invest these?
I am 59, my husband is 51.
Pia De Los Reyes says
Your book was recently featured as the top recommendation in this article: https://mint.intuit.com/blog/early-career/books-on-how-to-become-a-millionaire/.
Congrats! I thought you might like to add it to this page.
I appreciate you pointing this out.
It doesn’t fit on this page, but I’ll Tweet and FB it.
Shilpan Patel says
You are a master storyteller!
Have you seen the Index Fund Cheat Sheet out there from Next Level Finance? It looks like it matches up with what you are saying in your book and your site but since I am brand spanking new to all of this, I wanted to make sure. I am afraid of being swindled and don’t want to believe everything I read. Thank you for your time.
Chris (Mr. Inspire To FIRE) says
Could you add our podcast interview to this list?
Tim (Carrot) says
My name is Tim/Carrot. I’m a rock climber who also writes about climbing and talks about climbing on theDIHEDRAL Podcast.
I just finished your book and wish I would have read it years ago. It is so helpful.
After reading it I immediately thought I should get a hold of you to see if you would be willing to chat with us about investing for dirtbags. If you aren’t familiar with the term, it generally refers to folks who work to climb/ski/surf. They usually have no debt but also very little income. Several embrace van life to avoid high rent and house payments. They are used to a minimalist life style.
I am hoping a topic like this would be unique enough to pique your interest, we would love to have you join us for an episode where we can talk about your books and apply some methods to the dirtbag case study.
We are hoping upon hope that you’ll have some interest. Please let us know if you do or if you’d like more info!
Thanks again for all your advice and consideration!
Kaiden Kelly says
My name is Kaiden, I host a podcast called Book Club with Kaiden Kelly where I read and discuss messages and ideas from a different book each week to help listeners find peace, purpose, and meaning in their lives. I read and covered The Simple Path to Wealth and was inspired by your work like so many others.
Would you or anyone from your team be willing to join me in my podcast to discuss your book and work?
Your time is valuable, thank you for reading and responding to this email ahead of time.
G’day JL, bloody great list of interviews here. I have been a long time follower and your blog and interviews have been great at shaping my FI journey – I actually retired last year and now living my best (semi retirement) life. I run the Financial Independence podcast here in Australia and if you are ever interested in a chat with an Aussie I would love to have you on any time
