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.

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.

Mortgage Rebates, Airbnb, and Travel Deals with Dave Homyak
Releasing last week's episode with Dave again. You'll love the tip on mortgage rebates - who knew?!
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!
Needs to be better
You need to ask more specific questions of your guests, like what their financial position was when they went FI and the rationale behind it. What holdings do they have? All index funds? How did they specifically get to FI? What was their top salad or earnings in a year? What was their savings rate and how did they invest money? What about their specific expenses now? Most of the questions asked are fluff and literally a waste of time.
Great topics, well put together, and very relatable!
