Jonathan & Brad explore the tactics that the FI community uses to reclaim decades of their lives. They discuss reducing expenses, crushing debt, tax optimization, building passive income streams through online businesses and real estate and how to travel the world for free. Every episode is packed with actionable tips and no topic is too big or small as long as it speeds up the process of reaching financial independence.

I have enjoyed this podcast from the beginning but no more. They're more focused on politics and censoring people at their Facebook page

It's not over, your podcast is just irrelevant right now. FIRE folks hunker down and thank themselves for their prudent saving. Non Fire people will have no reason to even think about FI.....its survival mode for them.

This podcast has truly disrupted my status quo in all of the best ways possible. I was never a good saver or investor. After finding this pod in 2017 my wife and I have made incredible financial strides and it's all owed to Brad and Jonathan and their super informative, easily digestible, game changing teachings. These guys come off just like regular dudes that are extremely interested in getting this super power out to as many people as they can. Thank you Jonathan & Brad please keep up the great work...the fire is spreading!

The maths is way off! If you’re paying 35% tax and need to spend $1000 post tax, you need to earn almost 1600, not 1300$ pre tax. 1600*.65=1040

a lot of preamble! 15 mins in and haven't addressed the podcast title. I'm sure theres great info here but it makes for hard listening. I would appreciate a to the point style.

how do you find the baseline point cost in order to determine the sweet spot?

What options are there for people living in Europe? Credit card rewards here seem to be underwhelming or non existent. Is it possible to open an American credit card while living in Europe and use the bonuses that way?

one property per year for 5 years then attack the debt for 10 years(if you are planning to buy 5 properties)

just want to clarify... after you earn the rewards on a particular card are you calling and closing the card?

I found this podcast three months ago when Brad was on the Millionaires Unveiled podcast. I gave the ChooseFI podcast a listen because my family and I also live in Richmond and I could not be more glad that I did. This podcast and the feedback from the community have had a profound impact on me in the past three months. While it's not my biggest life hack to date I even joined the local library. My wife and I have always been good about saving but our spending has not always been as intentional as it is now. As an Engineer, I love efficiancy and this is the ultimate task to optimize. I can say without a doubt that this podcast has sparked a new fire within me and I cannot wait to share what we will learn in the years to come with our family, friends and our daughter. She's turns one next week but with all of the actionable items from the episodes I'm very much looking forward to having her be second generation FI and always thinking of how I'll present these topics to her. Thank you guys for all that you do and we are truly looking forward to watching the Playing with Fire documentary at the Byrd theater later this month. The path to financial freedom couldn't be more clear and we are very excited to be a part of this movement. Cheers! Greg Mitchell
