Well, it’s been an interesting week!
Not long ago, I caught up with fellow blogger Aussie Firebug on his podcast for a chat.
It was a great discussion and although I was nervous, it was a lot of fun. We share a lot in common and have learned many of the same lessons.
Among the topics discussed…
- When I realised the traditional working life wasn’t for me
- My journey to financial independence in much more detail than I’ve previously shared
- Borrowing money and property investing
- The housing obsession in Australia
- Transitioning into shares
- LICs and Index Funds
- Dividend focused investing
- The freedom money brings and choosing your own work
- Plus lots more…
We chatted for around an hour, so grab a cuppa and settle in! Simply click play below…
Big thanks to Aussie Firebug for inviting me on the show! Head over to his blog to watch his FI journey in real time as he updates his progress.
Strong Money in the media…
And if that wasn’t enough, this blog has had some unexpected bonus exposure.
I recently wrote a piece for The Motley Fool about my journey and investments – How I saved and invested to retire at 28.
To my surprise, the article was republished in a couple of other places, including Yahoo Finance and MSN Money.
(The republished articles state I grew up in Western Australia which is not true. For some reason, since I didn’t mention where I was from in the intro, the editor decided to add that part in, assuming I grew up in Perth, since that’s where I live)
Some of you may have ended up here from one of those outlets. In that case, welcome!
Feel free to look around and see the topics we’ve already covered. And stick around, because there’s plenty more juicy articles in the works.
After listening to the podcast and reading the published article, you’ll have a far better picture of our journey, our numbers, investment strategy and thinking than you had before, while still allowing us a small amount of privacy 🙂
