Obsessed

If you ever want to reignite any lost motivation on your journey to FI, this will do the trick. I am truly obsessed.

Wealth of knowledge (pun intended)

Powerful, practical information has changed the way I look at my finances more dramatically than any prior material, enjoy the host and the guests every time I listen to a new episode!

Learn something new twice a week!

I used to NEVER listen to podcasts, I thought they would be boring. I stumbled across chooseFI and that changed quick. Having always had a save now, reap the benefits later mindset, I’ve always been interested in saving and investing. Brad and Jonathan are very smart in the FIRE field and all of their guests bring lots of value to the show too. Whether you want to earn more, spend less, and basically do anything to retire early and live life on your terms, start listening now!
