Late last year I had the pleasure to record a podcast with Jessica. In the podcast we discussed FIRE, investment strategy (dividend growth stocks & index ETFs), financial independence vs financial freedom, and many more.
Recently Jessica published the podcast. I have to say, it’s weird listening to my own voice, but I am getting more used to it.
Please take a listen/watch. And in case the video doesn’t show up, here’s the link to the podcast.
What I got out of the podcast is that I should try to get on more podcasts. It’s a lot of fun talking to people about personal finance, investing, life philosophy, and other money-related topics. So this will be one of my focuses for 2018 – making an appearance on the different podcasts. 🙂
Dear readers, did you enjoy the podcast? And feedback for me?

Thank you so much for sharing all your valuable investment experiences.
Your conversation was really valuable to me.
I started to save stock one year ago. Though for now, I can only gain USD3 – 9 dividends per month, I still feel excited and wish 10 years later, I can have more and more passive income like you!

Thank you Victoria. 🙂
I started planning to be FIRE in 1989 when I saw the London Life ad Freedom55 (which I know is an ad) but really, it was FIRE before its time (no matter that a Life insurance company started). I beat my father by 1 year (at 54).
Nice, reaching FIRE at 54 is a great accomplishment!
It is a fun podcast … I like your ideas of FI and flexibility in regards to early retirement or semi-retirement …. 很好 🙂 … a FI was easy to reach but financial freedom is more illusive … so that is why I continue international school teaching for now 🙂 CPO, From the Far Side of the Planet 🙂
Thank you Michael. 🙂
Once I can get on some wifi I’ll give it a listen. Cool stuff!
Bob, I started to listen to Jessica after you posted the interview you gave at the conference you attended. I have enjoyed her podcast, and was happy to see you on a full interview. I thought you did a very good job summarizing your strategy and how becoming financially independent is within everybody’s grasp, it’s just a matter of choices, and you have made many good ones. Many people can learn from you. Congrats.
Thanks Eric, appreciate your kind feedback.
Will check it out. Thanks!
Thanks, let me know what you think. 🙂
I follow both you and Jessica, and was so excited to see you appear in her podcast feed! It was a fantastic interview, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Helps me get to know you a little better in a different format.
Really nice to see Canadian bloggers joining forces!
Thanks Chrissy, it was a lot of fun talking to Jess. Canadian bloggers joining forces is always a good thing. 🙂
I’ll take a listen!
Thank you, hope you will enjoy the podcast. 🙂
