Most people would love to become financially independent and have work be optional, but it is that realistic?

Today we’re looking at the real scoop about FIRE and whether it’s the path for you!

Financial Independence with Kids: Is That Really Possible?

And while we would say we’re on the FI path, it’s not our focus. It’s more the how.

But is financial independence the right direction for you and your family? 

Helping me to dig into this is Jonah Kaufman. He’s a financial advisor at Coastal Wealth Management. 

And while he’s not here for specific financial advice – that’s something you need to do one on one since everyone has unique financial circumstances – we are going over some things to consider and talk about as a family.

In this episode we’ll discuss: 

  • 5 big myths and misconceptions people have about financial independence
  • Two key numbers to keep an eye on for early retirement (and income is not one of them!)
  • How you two can create a FIRE plan that fits you

Hope you enjoy!
