Informative and Entertaining

My husband and I love listening to this podcast as we are navigating our FIREd life. I recommend this podcast to GenXers who are FI (or close to FI) and asking themselves “what next”. Thanks guys!

Love it

So far this podcast is awesome. These guys are so genuine and address crucial life issues humbly and in a great conversational manner. Thanks, please keep the podcasts coming. I’m too old for the E in FIRE, so shooting for FIRS financial independence retire someday:)
