Changed (actually still changing) my life!

I started listening to Brad and Jonathan about a month ago after hearing them on another podcast I love (HerMoney). It was one of many FIRE episodes my personal finance podcasts had aired that week, but Brad and Jonathan’s passion, open-mindedness, and excellent ability to explain complex ideas simply stuck with me. I decided to check out their podcast and have binged it ever since. In only one month, I’ve upped my side gigs to 5 times a week, which increased my income by 25%, decided to buy a townhome so I can house hack, plan on paying off my student debt by age 35 (I’m 32), AND will soon after max out all my retirement accounts.

Such a life changing podcast. I never thought I could accomplish FIRE with all my student loan debt (from degrees I no longer use after a career change at age 30). I feel incredibly lucky to have found ChooseFI and am also glad Jonathan has a similar story to mine, yet he’s on the path! So am I and I’m happy to be here. You guys ROCK!! The FIRE is burning strong!!!

Life Changing

I have always been a frugal person, prioritizing being debt free and saving for retirement which I credit in part to earlier radio icons in the personal finance world. And I really felt that I would be set for a comfortable retirement at age 65, because that’s just what people do. But ChooseFI has made me aware of another option that honestly had never occured to me… Financial independence and early retirement.

Probably the most important thing they have helped me to discover my “why” for the pursuit of financial independence. My mother survived a heart attack and my father was diagnosed with leukemia both near their age of retirement. My “why” is to have some version of retirement while I’m young enough and healthy enough to enjoy it.

I am drawn to the FI community because they genuinely seem committed to providing information to anyone willing to try something different in the pursuit of different outcomes. I can’t wait to see what else is possible on my journey. Thank you so much Brad and Jonathan.

A new world

Thank you guys for creating this podcast. It has been aextemely valuable and uplifting. I discovered the podcast simply by googling financial podcasts, because I was sick of the typical political ranting and raving podcasts that were not enriching my life,...onyl bringing anxiety. Now that I have discovered Joanathan and Brad, I am not only learning a lot of helpful information, but my 2 hours walk twice a week goes by quickly. I cannot get enough of this podcast. I am thankfully reaching a point in life where I can look at putting some money into investing and am ready to make the plunge! Thank you
