    • Self-Improvement

"How do you want to spend your time? Not what somebody else programmed into you."

Kimanzi Constable is a writer, podcaster, and entrepreneur. He has been featured in Time, Business Insider, and other publications. He is the author of "Are You Living or Existing?"

In this episode, you will learn the following:
1. How do you want to spend your time?
2. What is the Fire Movement?
3. What are some lessons you've learned from travel?

Chapter Summaries:

1) In This episode, Kimanzi and Jared talk about what they learned over the last year. Jared used to run an online business selling digital products, but now he's writing for Time and Business Insider. In the course of those stories, he discovered the Fire movement. Fire stands for financial independence and investing in total stock market funds. Jared wants to be financially independent. At 41, he has some money allocated in S&P 500. He wants to invest in 401 KS and Roth IRAs. Jared doesn't want to be 60 years old doing a Facebook Live, trying to get someone to buy his $97 course.

2) In September of last year, he and his wife sold their house and started traveling full-time. They went to Puerto Rico for six weeks. They were in Europe for the first three months this year in London, Lisbon, Rome, and East France. They were in Medicine Columbia for a month and on a cruise.

3) In Columbia, you can get an excellent Airbnb for $600 for the month. Cindy and I were in a four-bedroom, four-bath penthouse on the 12th floor overlooking the entire city for 1900. For a month, we ate big meals for $13 for the whole dinner for two people. There are mixed-use places that are catered to tourists.

4) In Europe, they've been able to standardize and systematize significant issues like healthcare. European cities tend to be more walkable. And have some public transportation. He was traveling in the US. It is expensive, but it's not as expensive as in Europe. Dave Ramsey's credit card is good for saving money. Kimanzi hasn't paid for a single flight this year. He's taken 26 flights.

5) Kimanzi likes Mark Cuban's subscription pharmacy service, the Fire movement, financial independence, saving more, investing more, and cutting expenses. Jared's podcast is world-class. Kimanzi follows YouTubers like Takis, who rescues dogs in Greece.
