It’s September! If you’ve been listening to the show for the past few months, then you know that I’m on what I’ve dubbed my September Sabbatical, in which I’m taking a break from podcast production and traveling the globe.
In light of that, we’re digging through the archives and airing some of my favorite interviews on the show, in between airing interviews I’ve done on other podcasts.
Earlier this year, Cody and Justin from The FI Show interviewed me and asked some excellent questions about my journey to financial independence, entrepreneurship and passion, and minding the gap between your income and expenses.
We talk about the importance of side hustling and how to create a well-paying job from your skills.
We touch on real estate and why I chose this strategy to reach FI.
We also discuss the bone I have to pick with the financial independence movement.
Finally, we chat about what financial independence is really about, because it’s not about sipping margaritas on a beach. It’s about having the freedom to use your time in whatever way you want.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
Thank you to Cody and Justin for giving us permission to air this interview.
P.S. – Starting with the next episode, we’ll return to our usual routine of brand new interviews and Ask Paula episodes. Thanks for sticking with us! 🙂
