Obsessed!

I’m completely hooked on your podcast! I’m an engineer and like to do things in an orderly fashion but I’ve been jumping around to different episodes because so many of the podcasts are on topics I’m interested in! I’m slowly making it through all of the episodes. I also just started the travel rewards endeavor this month. Thanks for the wealth of information you bring to your listeners.

Life changing info if you take action!

Finally caught up thanks to the 2x speed feature! Started a few weeks back and dove in deep! Awesome show I’d highly recommend it for literally everyone. Financial independence and freedom is closer than you think and not just for people who hate their job or want to lay around all day. This is something everyone can and should master. 🙌🏼 @choosefiradio my dad also listened to the JL Collins episode and bought “The Simple Path to Wealth” on audio and we’re loving that too! This is truly life changing information in a time when people need it the most, when most of this info is FREE, and when most people would rather talk about politics and Netflix and sports instead of building the life they want! You’re a few good decisions away from everything you want. It’s NOT difficult, it’s NOT some hidden or secret info, and NO ONE is going to do it for you. 🙏🏼

Started listening to this podcast from the beginning, I wasn’t feeling the Dave Ramsey episode, they tried so hard to criticize the Baby Steps, but they failed to give me a better ideas, seems like they agree with 100% what Dave said🤔he said he didn’t like the BS7 which is give and building wealth, he said, he likes freedom better. Building wealth, freedom and financial independence is the same thing in my opinion.
