Welcome to the Deep Dish

Hello! My name is Rich. This blog is about experiments in deliberate living: taking a few steps off the beaten path, to make better trade-offs in wealth, health, and personal freedom. Also, pizza... lots of pizza.

Have a mosey around and check out anything that piques your interest. You can dive right in with a list of all the posts ever written, read a potted history of my own story, or browse a selection of recommended articles.

Join 5000+ readers on the Deep Dish email newsletter. I try to write high-effort articles, which means you’ll hear from me once or twice a month (three times if I’m on fire).

You'll also immediately receive some free tools and resources to get started, including the custom net worth tracking spreadsheet I used to save $100,000 by age 25.

Please wait...

Nice one! Welcome.

TOPICS

Want to learn more about investing? Only interested in travel? The topic pages below contain a curated selection of top articles, along with a feed of the latest posts in each category.

RECOMMENDED

Products and Services: My favourite financial firms, investing platforms, courses and learning tools, and technology.

Books: A comprehensive reading list, sorted by subject area (coming soon – in the meantime, here’s the best of 2016, 2017, and 2018).

Gear List: As the stamps have accumulated in my passport, I’ve road-tested all sorts of gear, and ended up with a core packing list of less than 50 items.

 

LET'S TALK

The Deep Dish Facebook page is where I post my best writing, as well as various other bits and pieces that don’t make it onto the blog.

Hit me up on Twitter for occasional hot takes and tweet-storms, or the blissful safe space of Instagram for travel porn, sunsets, and calisthenics.

Come be my friend on Goodreads (the world's least popular social network) so we can swap reviews and recommendations.

Do not be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make, the better.
