Quick one: Rich and Marcus, hosts of the Paychecks & Balances podcast, just interviewed me in Episode 82: Financial Independence ft. Early Retirement Dude. Lot of laughs while discussing several vital subjects, including the following:1
- Clearly define your purpose: why do I want to retire early, and if I succeed at my plan, what will I do in retirement to overcome the inevitable boredom?
- Decide whether you really want to retire, or do you just need a different career field that actually motivates you?
- How many of your current costs are fixed versus would be avoided or lowered if you worked from home?
- Are your financial goals and lifestyle more aligned withLean FIRE or FatFIRE retirement saving goals?
Entertaining and informative show; well worth hearing. You can listen to it here, and I hope you’ll subscribe to Paychecks & Balances through iTunes.
Thanks, Rich & Marcus! Good times, and I hope to meet you in person next FinCon.
