A slightly different post today – a link to our first podcast appearance. I must admit that this is a little terrifying. I’ve heard myself on voice mail messages before – and in general, I’d rather go on another ‘snip trip’ than listen to myself speak!
I’ve been trying to come up with an effective way of introducing friends and family to financial independence (FI). Operation Death by Spreadsheet was an abject failure. I couldn’t even get Mrs Chaos to read a book or listen to a podcast about this stuff, so what chance have I got recommending these to anyone else.
So what do you do when your other half suggests you spend a lot of money to save money? Not with my our money, you don’t. But then my husband proceeds to tell me about a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet with some of the founders of FI and get one-to-one advice at a 1-week conference, a Chautauqua. Chatta-what? FI? What now?!!
Earlier this year I came across a totally new way of looking at life and finances – via the growing ‘Financial Independence’ (FI) movement. Since then, I’ve spent most of my time down every conceivable rabbit hole reading blogs, books, and listening to podcasts. Specifically on what and how I should be spending my money. I became rather evangelical about the solution – so evangelical I wondered if I’d joined a cult. But I’m sure it is not a cult. Pretty sure.
