Ep. 14 – “Journey to Freedom” Podcast: F.I.R.E. 101 …and we are moving to the jungle!

Welcome to Season 2 of “The Journey to Freedom” podcast!

After a short pause, I’m happy to begin the next season and I’m kicking it off with some exciting news: We are finally taking the first steps towards moving to the jungle! I fill you in on a recent trip to Costa Rica and some developments for the move date. 

Around 30 minutes in, I read the rough draft* of my upcoming book’s intro and Chapter 1. I first give a quick synopsis of the history of traditional retirement and why it is failing us. Then, I explain what the F.I.R.E. Movement really is, give the history of the movement and begin breaking down some of the first strategies behind achieving “financial independence to retire early.”
