    Braden had a completely different relationship with money. He grew up in a well-off family, so he never had to worry about money. He did get a job at 16 because his parents wanted him to learn the value of hard work.

    • Landing over $100k in scholarships
    • World Travels

Companion on the path to FI

This podcast is my favorite companion on my familys path to FI.
Thank you for the effort you have made for the community.

Life changing and future friendly!

Hi Brad and Jonathan,

First I want to thank you both for a GREAT show!
Learned a ton from you and I´m looking forward to every new episode as it contains so much good and usefull information.

When I grew up I wanted to be a drummer, touring the world and not live the hamster wheel life «everybody» else was living.

That didn’t quite happen, and I lost focus of being free as I didn’t knew anything about investing and FI back then.

Now, at 45, and after listening to your show for over a year I finally reached debt free April 23rd.2018 and I have now set the needle towards FI, going for a higher and higher savingsrate every month.

The best part is that both my daughters (11 & 13 years old) are finding FI exiting and I have set up an investment account for each of them, containing broadbased indexfunds (thanks to you guys) with monthly contributions.

Teaching them about the possibilities FI gives them a good foundation I think, and if they continue to apply this knowledge they eventually can live the life they truly want as financially free adults.

Much thanks and please continue to keep up the good work!:-)

Kindest Regards
Kai Kjartan Høgberg - Norway
