FIRE Movement (Financial Independence, Retire Early)

This show is going to be a hot one as the running theme throughout will be the FIRE Movement. If you’re not in the know, FIRE stands for Financial Independence, Retire Early.

We kick things off with Ronnie from Connecticut who is one of those young professionals looking to retire early. Is it possible for him?

Next up was Phil from Tennessee who is quite a bit older than Ronnie and has some questions about his workplace retirement plan.

Money is unlimited. Time is not. Become financially independent as fast as possible.

In 2010, 24-year old Grant Sabatier woke up to find he had $2.26 in his bank account. Five years later, he had a net worth of over $1.25 million, and was known as "the Millennial Millionaire."

By age 30, he had reached financial independence. Along the way he uncovered that most of the accepted wisdom about money, work, and retirement is either incorrect, incomplete, or so old-school it's obsolete.

On the show to discuss his brand new book, Financial Freedom: A Proven Path to All the Money You Will Ever Need, Sabatier delivers a step-by-step path to make more money in less time, so you have more time for the things you love.

The book challenges the accepted narrative of spending decades working a traditional 9 to 5 job, pinching pennies, and finally earning the right to retirement at age 65, and instead offers readers an alternative: forget everything you've ever learned about money so that you can actually live the life you want.

Financial Freedom is not merely a laundry list of advice to follow to get rich quick, it's a practical roadmap to living life on one's own terms, as soon as possible.

I'm a big fan of the FIRE movement. In case you haven't heard, FIRE stands for "Financial Independence, Retire Early." Who wouldn't want that? Our latest caller, Jon, certainly does, and we talked about whether or not it's realistic given his situation.
