Ep 1: Money is Freedom w/ My Dad

One of my earliest childhood memories is of my Dad telling me "Money is Freedom". It has stuck with and inspired me deeply. For the first episode of the Financial Freedom podcast I invited my Dad to discuss freedom, money, his challenges growing up, and what's next as he plans for retirement.

My Dad is an incredibly humble and quiet guy, so it took some convincing to get him on the show. But I wanted to launch the podcast with the man that inspired my own financial freedom journey. Enjoy!
