Financial Independence Retire Early (with kids) ft. Rich and Regular – PB139

Rich and Marcus recorded this week’s episode at #Fincon19, with their friends Julien and Kiersten of Rich & Regular.

Fincon is a yearly conference aimed at helping financial influencers and brands create better content, reach their audience, and make more money.

Julien and Kiersten are part of the FIRE movement (Financial Independence / Retire Early) and in this episode, they discuss bridging money gaps with your partner, being obsessed with saving, and setting unique financial goals based on the desired lifestyle you want.

They prove with the right mindset, focus, and budget you can strive to FIRE also. Yes, even with kids.

  • There’s no financial plan for the “average individual” because everyone’s life is different
  • Focusing on increasing income vs. focusing on cutting down on expenses

Key Takeaway: There is no one way to start saving and investing. You need to come up with a plan that fits your income, your goals, and your lifestyle.
