The Fine Print – Disclaimer


Hello fellow Rebel. There are a few things you need to know:

We’re Alan and Katie, just a couple of ordinary folks who figured out how to invest and make our money work for us, leading to our financial freedom when Katie was 35 and Alan was 40. We’re here to share the strategies and ideas that helped us take control of our lives and finances. But here’s the thing – we’re not financial advisors, and we don’t have any fancy qualifications in finance. We’re not regulated, and we definitely don’t sell investment products.

What we do offer are our personal experiences, the lessons we’ve learned, and the strategies that have worked for us. We talk about personal finance, investment strategies, and how to design a life you love. We provide free courses, write blog articles, and share content about lifestyle design, starting a business, and achieving financial independence.

But remember, while we share what has worked for us, it might not work for you or even continue to work for us in the future. Investing can be a rollercoaster, and it’s not for the faint-hearted. If you decide to follow any of the strategies we discuss, like buying an index fund, it’s crucial to stay the course and not panic sell during market dips – otherwise, you might end up losing money.

We want to empower you with ideas and knowledge, but you are the captain of your ship. You’re 100% responsible for your financial future, which is both exciting and a bit daunting. So, take our stories as a source of inspiration, not gospel. Do your research, make informed decisions, and if you’re ever in doubt, seek advice from a qualified professional.

We’re all about having fun and keeping it real, so if you have any questions or just want to chat about your journey, don’t hesitate to reach out.

Stay rebellious and financially savvy!

Alan & Katie

Affiliate links and offers

Let’s talk about something that keeps this site running without costing you a penny – affiliate links. Now, we know what you’re thinking, “Not another disclaimer!” But stick with us; it’s important.

Here’s the deal: We’ve sprinkled some affiliate links throughout These aren’t just any links; they’re handpicked recommendations for books, services, and products that we’ve personally used, tested, and absolutely believe in. And yes, we might get a small commission if you click and make a purchase, but it won’t cost you a dime extra.

Think of it as a win-win: you get access to stuff that could help you create an extraordinary life, and we get to keep the lights on at without dipping into our pockets. If you prefer to go direct, no hard feelings – just type the name into your browser and off you go.

We turn down 99% of affiliate offers that come our way because they don’t align with our mission to help you invest wisely and live fully. If we’re sharing an affiliate link, it’s because we use the product ourselves and we’re confident it’s worth your time.

Occasionally, we both score – you might get a discount or a bonus, and we get a little thank you from the company.

But what if something goes sideways? If a product or service we’ve recommended doesn’t live up to your expectations, let’s talk. It hasn’t happened yet, but we’re here to help sort things out if it does. Your trust means everything to us, and we’re not about to jeopardize that for a few affiliate £££s.

So, as you navigate through, assume those links are there to offer you value and support the site. And remember, whether it’s Lego, pizza, or breakfast, our love for these things is genuine – no bribes or breakfast deals have swayed our opinions (though we’re open to Lego donations, just saying).

Thanks for trusting us on your journey to financial independence. Let’s keep it real and responsible, one click at a time.
