On this episode of UNGENTRIFIED, I am joined by Kiersten & Julien Saunders of rich & REGULAR (@richandREGULAR), financial power couple featured on CBS This Morning, the NY Times, and Essence Magazine to talk about F.I.R.E., the aggressive financial lifestyle many are turning to so that they can retire early and live their best lives.

This podcast episode is a something I originally recorded in 2017 for the third season of the podcast “You Had Me at Black.” The story didn’t make that season, but Martina Abrahams Ilunga, creator of “You Had Me at Black” graciously gave me the files from our recording session, and I’ve taken the story I shared about my first trip to Dubai and created a mini bonus episode for you. After listening to this episode, definitely check out You Had Me Black, where they’re reclaiming the Black narrative by passing regular people the mic to share their stories in their words. ungentrifiedpodcast.com #ungentrifiedpod www.kentwjohnson.com   Email us your questions/comments at ungentrified@kentwjohnson.com.
