    #38 A Conversation about Work and Retirement Related to the FIRE Movement

    #38 A Conversation about Work and Retirement Related to the FIRE Movement

    Nick and Kayla discuss their perception on work and retirement. In short, work should be enjoyable and if it doesn't meet your expectations, find something else to do. Retirement is more of a state of mind than it is a status. We're living the life we will probably be living once we are retired. The only difference is our reliance upon our jobs for income. The idea that FIRE enthusiasts want to quit the workforce is simply not true. The truth is that work is simply providing value to society in return for money.

    #33 Geoarbitrage: We Relocated Our Family of 5 Across the Country

    We're so excited to be back. As many of you know, we took some time off to relocate our family (geoarbitrage) across the country. We moved from Washington to Texas and this episode is all about the move! Joined by my amazing wife Kayla, we discuss the good, the bad, and some funny stories during our big move. There are some hidden tips if you're considering relocating your family. 
    We have some big updates launching the coming weeks/months. We're turning half my office into a recording studio and will be video recording each episode and posting it to YouTube. We're looking at an August launch and will mark a new season of the FIRE The Family Podcast. We're so excited to move the podcast in this direction and believe we have a lot of value to give as a happily married couple making intentional decisions with their family, money, and future!
