Julien Saunders of Rich and Regular talks about the high fructose corn syrup in your 401k Episode 2022: The High Fructose Corn Syrup in Your 401K by Julien Saunders Julien and Kiersten started rich & REGULAR in 2017 after their stint in real estate investing led them to discover the F.I.R.E movement.

Their blog became a place where they not only shared in their frustrations, but offered solutions to a richer and happier life. They could not have imagined that just a few years later, they would sign a book deal with the world's largest publisher, Penguin Random House. But that's not all. Their blog has afforded them opportunities to work with incredible brands, world-class media and into the fast-paced world of digital entrepreneurship.

2008: Does Owning a Vacation Home Make Sense? by Darrow Kirkpatrick

Darrow Kirkpatrick of Can I Retire Yet shares if owning a vacation home makes sense. Episode 2008: Does Owning a Vacation Home Make Sense? by Darrow Kirkpatrick Darrow Kirkpatrick is the founder of CanIRetireYet.com. He began serious investing in his mid-30s and retired at age 50. He's not a dot com millionaire and didn't become financially independent by flipping real estate or trading hot stocks. He did it the traditional way: hard work, frugality, prudent investing, and patience. When it comes to personal finance, his top priorities are simplicity, reliability, and safety. Now his mission is to help others become financially independent as he did. More recently, Chris Mamula has been managing the blog and he's a frequent writer on the site. Chris used principles of traditional retirement planning, combined with creative lifestyle design, to retire from a career as a physical therapist at age 41. After poor experiences with the financial industry early in his professional life, he educated himself on investing and tax planning. Now he draws on his experience to write about wealth building, DIY investing, financial planning, early retirement, and lifestyle design.

She had to slow down, prioritize her health, and figure out what was really important in her life. She discovered what mattered most by getting rid of everything that didn't matter at all. In the end it all came down to love and health. She went from a busy, overwhelmed advertising director to spending 2-3 hours every morning taking care of herself, loving her work, and being present and engaged with the people she loves. Her family changed, too. They moved from wanting bigger closets, nicer furniture, and more stuff to downsizing into a 750 sq. ft apartment with no storage.

Episode 1991: [Part 2] A Flexible Plan For Health Insurance In Early Retirement by Chris Mamula Darrow Kirkpatrick is the founder of CanIRetireYet.com. He began serious investing in his mid-30s and retired at age 50. He's not a dot com millionaire and didn't become financially independent by flipping real estate or trading hot stocks. He did it the traditional way: hard work, frugality, prudent investing, and patience. When it comes to personal finance, his top priorities are simplicity, reliability, and safety. Now his mission is to help others become financially independent as he did. More recently, Chris Mamula has been managing the blog and he's a frequent writer on the site. Chris used principles of traditional retirement planning, combined with creative lifestyle design, to retire from a career as a physical therapist at age 41. After poor experiences with the financial industry early in his professional life, he educated himself on investing and tax planning. Now he draws on his experience to write about wealth building, DIY investing, financial planning, early retirement, and lifestyle design.

1893: An Excerpt From Transparent Investing: How to Play the Stock Market Without Getting Played by Patrick Geddes
884
An excerpt from the book Transparent Investing: How to Play the Stock Market Without Getting Played by Patrick Geddes Episode 1893: An Excerpt From Transparent Investing: How to Play the Stock Market Without Getting Played by Patrick Geddes The investment industry wants you to believe in stock market wizards who can predict the future and make a killing for you. But there’s a simpler way to invest using indexing that offers better returns and less stress—no crystal ball needed. We all know from experience that rational thoughts often lose out to primal cravings: if someone handed you a plate of chocolate cake and a plate of broccoli right now, which would you instinctively reach for? When investing, you face this same tension between the part of your brain that longs for the sweet, satisfying allure of beating the market versus the rational and wise part that chooses the boring solution offering better results. You also face an uphill battle against an industry that makes more money selling you the finance equivalent of chocolate cake. This is the truth the investment industry doesn’t want you to know: a low-cost passive portfolio not only earns you higher returns on average than active investing (the kind that makes them the most money) but is also shockingly simple to build and manage. Smart investing doesn’t have to be intimidating or as complicated as the faux wizards behind the curtain want you to believe. With Transparent Investing, you’ll learn how the game works and how to achieve your investment goals with far less study, time, and anxiety than you might think.

Mark Manson shares the real value of money. Episode 1813: The Real Value of Money by Mark Manson on Personal Finance & Creating True Wealth Mark Manson was a full-time professional dating coach for men from 2008 until 2011. Sick of the industry, he wrote his first book, Models: Attract Women Through Honesty, and changed the name and focus of his business to address broader self-development topics for men. The book took off, selling tens of thousands of copies. As he branched out into deeper issues of masculinity, self-worth, and the changing cultural landscape, the site grew. By 2013, he had begun writing about larger cultural issues — gender relations, happiness, ambition, life purpose, and cultural perspectives he had gathered while living in various countries around the world. Despite the fact that the business was still directed at men, thousands of women began reading and asking for advice as well. That same year, he made the leap to his own site and domain, broadening the demographics of his audience. The site exploded, garnering millions of views each month. Check out his book, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F--- on his site or Amazon.

Liz of Frugalwoods shares why she ignores the stock market, and why you should do the same Episode 1797: Why We Ignore The Stock Market And You Should Too: Demystifying Personal Finance Part 4 by Liz of FrugalWoods The Frugalwoods are ex-urban, rookie homesteaders finding contentment (and a lot of chores) on 66 acres in rural central Vermont along with their two young daughters. They write about a wide range of topics, including their experience as parents, their adventures as novice homesteaders, and the financial decisions that made their life possible. Their philosophy is that managing your money wisely enables you to pursue unusual aspirations and opens up a world of options for how to live your life. Through the application of frugality–coupled with good incomes and judicious financial management–they have created a life that they love living every single day. It’s not a life beholden to consumerism or the drive for material perfection or the incessant clarion call for more.

1792: The Worst Investment Advice I Ever Heard-Everywhere by Chris Mamula of Can I Retire Yet on Saving for Retirement
929
Chris Mamula of Can I Retire Yet shares the worst investment advice he's ever heard. Episode 1792: The Worst Investment Advice I Ever Heard-Everywhere by Chris Mamula of Can I Retire Yet on Saving for Retirement Darrow Kirkpatrick is the founder of CanIRetireYet.com. He began serious investing in his mid-30s and retired at age 50. He's not a dot com millionaire and didn't become financially independent by flipping real estate or trading hot stocks. He did it the traditional way: hard work, frugality, prudent investing, and patience. When it comes to personal finance, his top priorities are simplicity, reliability, and safety. Now his mission is to help others become financially independent as he did. More recently, Chris Mamula has been managing the blog and he's a frequent writer on the site. Chris used principles of traditional retirement planning, combined with creative lifestyle design, to retire from a career as a physical therapist at age 41. After poor experiences with the financial industry early in his professional life, he educated himself on investing and tax planning. Now he draws on his experience to write about wealth building, DIY investing, financial planning, early retirement, and lifestyle design.

854
Liz of Frugalwoods shares how to create sustainable money habits. This is part 1 of 2. Episode 1751: [Part 1] How to Create Sustainable Money Habits by Liz of FrugalWoods on Personal Finance Routines The Frugalwoods are ex-urban, rookie homesteaders finding contentment (and a lot of chores) on 66 acres in rural central Vermont along with their two young daughters. They write about a wide range of topics, including their experience as parents, their adventures as novice homesteaders, and the financial decisions that made their life possible. Their philosophy is that managing your money wisely enables you to pursue unusual aspirations and opens up a world of options for how to live your life. Through the application of frugality–coupled with good incomes and judicious financial management–they have created a life that they love living every single day. It’s not a life beholden to consumerism or the drive for material perfection or the incessant clarion call for more.

1750: Where Should I Invest My Short-Term 'Stash by Mr. Money Mustache on Investing in Bonds & Money Market Accounts
755
Mr. Money Mustache shares his opinions and strategies for investing short-term cash. Episode 1750: Where Should I Invest My Short-Term 'Stash by Mr. Money Mustache on Investing in Bonds & Money Market Accounts Mr. Money Mustache is a thirty-something retiree who now writes about how we can all live a frugal, yet awesome, life of leisure. He and his wife studied engineering and computer science in Canada, then worked in standard tech-industry cubicle jobs in various locations throughout the late ’90s and early 2000s. Then they retired from real work way back in 2005 in order to start a family. This was achieved not through luck or amazing skill, but simply by living a lifestyle about 50% less expensive than most of their peers and investing the surplus in very boring conservative Vanguard index funds and a rental house or two.

719
Steven Keys of Trip of a Lifestyle talks about financially independent thinking Episode 1749: Everyone Else Could Be Wrong by Steven Keys of Trip Of A Lifestyle on Financially Independent Thinking Since graduating from college in 2012, Steven has developed a healthy obsession with personal finance. Although he has no formal training in the field, he’s taught himself a lot about saving and investing over the years. In addition to the normal stuff, he’s also come up with quite a few unusual ways to make extra money, from credit card hacking, to buying and selling stuff on eBay, to ridiculous ventures like taking advantage of loopholes at casinos. After finding satisfaction in helping friends and family prepare for retirement, pay off their student loans, and navigate the confusing world of home buying, Steven wanted to share his thoughts on personal finance more publicly. His main motivation for blogging stems from a desire to help more people become financially free and change their lives for the better.
