Show Notes

Doug and Carl chat with JL Collins about the evolution of the FIRE movement, lifestyle inflation, “enough”, & envy as well as how diverse the FI community is (not exclusive to any particular income level or lifestyle).  JL introduces his recent book, “Pathfinders”, which collects stories that demystify the process of achieving financial independence and highlights the different paths that people have taken, echoing the themes of intentional living and spending.

Have you already found your “enough”?  If so, then you’re welcome to share anything above & beyond with us over at Buy Me A Coffee.
