Deconstructing Financial Independence Retire Early (FIRE)

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?

    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!

    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.

    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 🙂
