Parker Hewes - Your Money and Your Health
Health is similar to finances in that there are many overly-complex things people say you need to do, but there are just a few simple things that actually matter.
What is the "spend less than you earn, invest in a diversified/low-fee portfolio, and leave it to grow/compound" of the health world?
That's what today's episode is about!
Parker Hewes wrote a book called Lifelong Youth: The Simple Path to a Long and Youthful Life, and today he shares the eight health behaviors that will do the most for your longterm health and wellbeing!
Jillian Johnsrud & Chad Carson - Small and Mighty Real Estate Investing
On today’s episode of the Financial Independence Podcast, I welcome back Chad Carson from CoachCarson.com!
Chad just released a new book, The Small and Mighty Real Estate Investor, and I wanted to get him back on the show to talk about it.
I’m not a real-estate investor myself though. So rather than interview him myself, my real-estate-investor friend, Jillian Johnsrud, did the interview for me!
You may know Jillian from Montana Money Adventures, or her new podcast – Retire Often.
She did a fantastic job, so I hope you enjoy their conversation as much as I did!
Ramit Sethi – How to Spend (and Actually Enjoy It)
On today’s episode of the Financial Independence Podcast, I welcome back Ramit Sethi from I Will Teach You to Be Rich!
I needed someone to come on the show to provide some tough love and Ramit was the only person for the job.
As Ramit mentioned during our last interview, FIRE people are great at knowing what NOT to spend on but we’re not good at knowing what to spend on.
Spending is going to be a big focus on the Mad Fientist this year and I can’t think of a better way to kick off this discussion than by getting yelled at by Ramit so hope you enjoy it!
Why we doubled our annual spending (and was it worth it) What Ramit did to make me get all clammy and uncomfortable Why pay less when you can pay more How to imagine your own rich life Why you should start wasting some money at a certain point
My Family - Raising Money-Smart Kids
Over the last few years, I interviewed members of my family to find out two things:

What advice they'd give to parents hoping to raise money-smart children
This is a short but sweet holiday episode to end the year and I hope you enjoy it!
