Jake at The Voluntary Life approached us about an interview for his podcast last week. We had a great conversation about our plans to retire extremely early, and how friends and family have received the idea.
Hope you’re feeling nosy! We’re about to strip down to our financial birthday suit and reveal our income, expenses and net worth. We did it to keep ourselves accountable to our goals and make things more interesting for you guys.
We debated for months whether we should or not, but decided it would need to happen sooner or later, so why not sooner!
We’ll cover our expenses in detail in another video.
We visit Atlanta to interview Paula Pant from AffordAnything.com. She is a financially independent blogger who accumulated a collection of rental units that provide over $35,000 in completely passive income. She also has a successful blog, content marketing company, and has traveled to over 30 countries!
Want to know why we do the things we do? Our goal is retire extremely early by saving 75% of our income. If you’re interested in financial independence definitely check out Mr. Money Mustache (link below).
You don’t need a high income to retire early. But, you are going to need to give up a lot of “things” for financial freedom. Some people think living without luxury isn’t living, we think living without time isn’t living. We just want people to know they’re making a choice.
