"If you retire at 30 or 65, there's a lot of time where you can choose your own pathway, but until they know that's an option, there is no other pathway."



"Here's the information that people don't have, now that you have it, now that you understand that there are other options, only you can get to decide how you want to live your life, what do you want to do".



"The early financial independence movement is about freeing up your time to spend it, on the things that make you happy"

"Success happens when you surround yourself with like-minded people. That's the whole idea of Gobudance, you want to be with people that challenge us, that level us up".
