Loving it.

I am a bit older than your target audience however I am finding the podcast very interesting and helpful. As a woman who has been out of the workforce raising my family I am finding that I have been able to use your knowledge to increase my understanding of where I am at in relation to my ability to retire without ending up in poverty. At this stage I may have to work a little longer than your FIRE girls but at least I will be secure. Thank you for your insight and sharing such important information to us ladies.

Kissyfur84 ,

Learnt a lot about investing for beginners.

I've been looking for a podcast on investing for beginners particularly with ETFs and where to start. Priya's Girl on FIRE is exactly what I need, she's elaborative and makes it all very easy to understand and digest. Love her soothing voice too! I've taken action on a number of her recommendations. Thank you for sharing your knowledge. Five stars for sure!
