Bay v. VA

I agree with your wife in one of the latest episodes— I grew up in the bay and that’s where I learned grit and hustle. I would def not deprive my kids of the joy of growing up here in a place where they can identify with their peers and now even their teachers, it’s just a different kind of experience period. I see your point about teaching them how to survive but I wouldn’t intentionally make them suffer just to teach them how to hustle, let kids be kids. All respect no attack

Sam is AWESOME!

I first learned of Sam through the Bigger Pockets Money Podcast and he is FANTASTIC!

P.S. Sam, you recently had an episode with your Mrs.’ regarding moving from San Francisco to Virginia. I’m sorry, I’m going to have to side with your wife! 🤣

I’ve been reading his blog since 2013 and it was my first exposure to FIRE. He has some great content so I’m glad he is making it accessible as a podcast.

Like any financial advice, you need to adapt it to your situation. Sam lives in a high cost of living area (San Francisco) so his financial targets can be aggressive. He is also by nature a high achiever so don’t be discouraged if you can’t meet his benchmarks. His writing aligns more closely to my goals than the FIRE blogger that retired at 30 with a $1M living in the Midwest or Thailand and no kids.

I don’t always agree with his conclusions but he always backs it up with analysis that I can use to inform my own decisions.
