Episode 1296: [Part 1] How to Talk about Money with Your Significant Other by Kristin Wong with I Will Teach You To Be Rich

Ramit wants to use money to say YES. He knew there was a better way to live a rich life—if we could use psychology to focus on what actually works. Not just for personal finance, but all aspects of life: money, careers, relationships, business, fitness, and more.
Since then, he's been testing and sharing his findings with the world via I Will Teach You To Be Rich.
He's also written a New York Times bestselling book, been profiled in a 6-page Fortune article, and been pictured next to Warren Buffett in Forbes Magazine, as well as been featured by a long list of media, including the Wall Street Journal, ABC News, NPR, Fox Business, PBS, CNBC, and more. He also has tons of documented success stories—more than 20,000.

1283: [Part 2] 3 Bad Financial Decisions That Helped Me Retire Sooner by Chris Mamula of Can I Retire Yet
435

Chris Mamula of Can I Retire Yet shares three bad financial decisions he made that somehow managed to help him retire sooner. This is part 2 of 2.

Episode 1283: [Part 2] 3 Bad Financial Decisions That Helped Me Retire Sooner by Chris Mamula of Can I Retire Yet

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.

1263: Early Retirement Can't Work, Or I'd Have Heard Of It Before by ARebelSpy with Mr. Money Mustache on Frugality
463

ARebelSpy of Mr. Money Mustache debunks the myth of why early retirement can't work.

Episode 1263: Early Retirement Can't Work, Or I'd Have Heard Of It Before by ARebelSpy with Mr. Money Mustache on Frugality

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.

Chris Mamula of Can I Retire Yet encourages us to play offense in retirement. This is part 2 of 2.

Episode 1255: [Part 2] Playing Offense in Retirement by Chris Mamula of Can I Retire Yet on Challenges of Retiring Early

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.

Mr. Money Mustache discusses how to save money with a secret food stash AND by drying clothes more efficiently.

Episode 1235: Get Rich With: The Secret Food 'Stash AND My New 1000% Annual Return-on-Investment Clothes Dryer by MMM

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.

Darrow Kirkpatrick of Can I Retire Yet shares if you should work one more year.

Episode 1227: Should You Work One More Year? by Darrow Kirkpatrick of Can I Retire Yet on The Retirement Decision

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.

Episode 1202: How To Strategically Use Credit Cards AND The Pain of Paying: Carrying Cash by Philip Dancy of Dancy with Money

Philip Dancy joined one of the top investment banking firms upon his graduation from the Five Year MBA program at Hampton University. After starting his career in New York City and getting his first check, he understood that this “adulting” life wasn’t going to be simple.

As a result, Philip reached a point where he was comfortable and on a trajectory towards financial freedom. Philip’s main goal is to help millennials and Gen Z’ers (but ultimately everyone) establish a strong financial foundation through coaching while helping them turn steps into strides.

Darrow Kirkpatrick of Can I Retire Yet shares a surprising contender for tax-efficient retirement saving.

Episode 1200: A Surprising Contender for Tax-Efficient Retirement Saving by Darrow Kirkpatrick of Can I Retire Yet

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.

Mr. Money Mustache shares his thoughts on getting rich with nature.

Episode 1189: Get Rich With: Nature by Mr. Money Mustache on The Calming Effect of Being Outdoors & Financial Freedom

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.

Darrow Kirkpatrick of Can I Retire Yet shares his thoughts on mastering the fear of stocks.

Episode 1173: Mastering the Fear of Stocks by Darrow Kirkpatrick of Can I Retire Yet on Investing for Financial Independence

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.

Episode 1157: [Part 2] Frequently Complained Questions by Mr. Money Mustache on Simple Living & Financial Freedom

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.

Darrow Kirkpatrick of Can I Retire Yet shares three wildcards for boomer retirement.

Episode 1147: Three Wildcards for Boomer Retirement by Darrow Kirkpatrick of Can I Retire Yet on Safe Withdrawal Rates

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.

Episode 1131: Get Rich With: Conspicuous Consumption by Mr. Frugal Toque with Mr. Money Mustache on Frugality & Building Wealth

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.

Darrow Kirkpatrick of Can I Retire Yet shares his thoughts on alternative investments for savvy retirees.

Episode 1120: Alternative Investments for Savvy Retirees - Part 1 by Darrow Kirkpatrick of Can I Retire Yet

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.

Episode 1116: The Three Digit Number: Credit Scores AND Debt Talk: Avalanche vs Snowball by Philip Dancy of Dancy With Money

Philip Dancy joined one of the top investment banking firms upon his graduation from the Five Year MBA program at Hampton University. After starting his career in New York City and getting his first check, he understood that this “adulting” life wasn’t going to be simple. However, the one thing he knew he had to do was create a budget for himself. Through a period of trial and error, Philip was able to establish a solid foundation. As a result, Philip reached a point where he was comfortable and on a trajectory towards financial freedom. Philip’s main goal is to help millennials and Gen Z’ers (but ultimately everyone) establish a strong financial foundation through coaching while helping them turn steps into strides.

Mr. Money Mustache on efficiency is the highest form of beauty. This is part 2 of 2.

Episode 1108: [Part 2] Efficiency is the Highest Form of Beauty by Mr. Money Mustache on Frugalism & Mustachianism

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.

Darrow Kirkpatrick of Can I Retire Yet shares his thoughts on long-term care insurance.

Episode 1100: Long-Term Care Insurance: Beyond the Sales Pitch by Darrow Kirkpatrick of Can I Retire Yet on Wealth Preservation

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.

386

2 short posts from Ramit Sethi of I Will Teach You to be Rich on what do you not care about spending money on and why do you want to be rich.

Episode 1088: What Do You NOT Care About Spending Money On? AND Why Do You Want To Be rich? by Ramit Sethi of IWT

Ramit wants to use money to say YES. He knew there was a better way to live a rich life—if we could use psychology to focus on what actually works. Not just for personal finance, but all aspects of life: money, careers, relationships, business, fitness, and more.
Since then, he's been testing and sharing his findings with the world via I Will Teach You To Be Rich.
He's also written a New York Times bestselling book, been profiled in a 6-page Fortune article, and been pictured next to Warren Buffett in Forbes Magazine, as well as been featured by a long list of media, including the Wall Street Journal, ABC News, NPR, Fox Business, PBS, CNBC, and more. He also has tons of documented success stories—more than 20,000.

The Mad Fientist analyzes the tax code and looks at personal finance through the lens of early financial independence to develop strategies and tactics to help you retire even earlier.
Most personal finance advice is geared towards people retiring in their 60s or later and doesn’t apply to those of us pursuing early financial independence. The Mad Fientist is focused on providing advice and innovative tax-avoidance methods specifically for people wanting to break away from full-time employment very early in life. He also hosts the Financial Independence Podcast.

Episode 1075: Good Times for Landlords by Mr. Money Mustache on How to Profit from Real Estate Investment & Rental Returns

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.

Episode 1073: [Part 2] The Perfect Storm - Demonstrating Conflicts of Interest With Investment Advice 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.

His philosophy is simple and focuses on doing three simple things to achieve financial independence: earn, save, invest. There's a bit more to it than that, of course, but if you can concentrate on these three areas, they will get you at least 90% of the way there.

Episode 1060: Could This Be The Real Thing That's Keeping You From Saving More Money? by Kelley Long with Financial Finesse

After years in the financial services industry, Liz Davidson became disgusted with how many people were being sold financial products and services that were not in their best interest. She decided there had to be a better way to provide people from all walks of life with truly unbiased financial guidance--designed to line their pockets, not their financial advisor’s.
This is the story of Financial Finesse and how they give employees and employers unbiased financial wellness as an employee benefit. They help your employees maximize their compensation and benefits by making better financial decisions. You become a partner in their financial security and reap the benefits of a financially healthy workforce.
They’ve helped hundreds of thousands of employees change their lives.

Darrow Kirkpatrick of Can I Retire Yet shares how he rebalanced through perilous times.

Episode 1048: How I Rebalanced Through Perilous Times by Darrow Kirkpatrick of Can I Retire Yet on Portfolio Rebalancing

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.

Episode 1045: Get Rich With Bikes by Mr. Money Mustache on How To Save Money & Improve Your Life by Biking More

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.
