    Parent Goals: How Rachel Teodoro Has College Tuitions and Her Mortgage Handled

    Parent Goals: How Rachel Teodoro Has College Tuitions and Her Mortgage Handled

    My name is Rachel Teodoro and I am a mom of three kids living in the greater Seattle area with my husband Mike, who is a mechanical engineer. We met while attending Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. I am a lover of all things thrifty and can be found trolling for garage sales nearly every weekend. I like to craft, create and decorate my home with my thrifty finds. I am always happy to share my tips and tricks for living well on less.

    From Rachel's website - https://www.rachelteodoro.com/

    In this episode we discuss paying off her mortgage and paying for her three kids' college tuition.

    We Early Retired in Late 2018 For World Travel | Ali and Alison Walker

    We are Ali and Alison Walker, and we used to call Seattle, Washington our home. We met in 2004, married in 2006, and retired in 2018. After reaching Financial Independence we wanted a complete and total change from our career-focused lives. We decided that meant leaving our Seattle life behind and making travel our new lifestyle. By November of 2018 we had sold our home and car, let go of 99% of our belongings, and left Seattle to travel the world indefinitely.

One of my favorites!

So glad I stumbled upon this podcast. Julie covers all my favorite topics - passive income, real estate investing, early retirement. I especially loved Ali and Alison walker’s episode about retiring early and traveling the world. Great guests, amazing value... highly recommend!

Refreshingly authentic host!

I'm just super impressed by Julie. Makes you feel like she cares, and will not accept any BS. I appreciate her sincerity.

Feeling Hustled

Loved this podcast when it was Gwen and Julie, Gwen’s experience prematurely FIRE-ing grounded Julie’s optimism. Since Gwen left it feels like the podcast is all about sponsorships and affiliate links - less genuine and less concerned with the listeners’ journeys than Julie’s. Signed up for the Blogging for Profit course and now get emails whenever Julie has new sponsored link, but nothing of value.

Older content, before Gwen left, is great and very encouraging for those starting out.
