Truly Valuable 💸

This podcast is so insightful and I’ve enjoyed every episode I’ve listened to so far! Carl and Doug do such a great job of sharing their wisdom and I love how they also lead meaningful conversations with FI leaders who bring so much experience and actionable insight to the table, having already experienced success themselves. Highly recommend checking this show out - you won’t be disappointed!

Doug and Carl are Super Authentic

I enjoy listening to these two and their guests. There conversations are authentic. Never super technical, but happy to hear about their FIRE experience. Ready to follow them to CampFI to make them my new best friends!

Thank you

Nick’s podcast gave me a side hustle idea. Several years later it became full time passive income and then the business was sold. Thanks Nick!
