5 days ago
Time to re-up and recycle the flow. What does that even mean? Well, this week we re-visit our fastest downloaded podcast ever, PB47: Barely Making It on $500K! As an added bonus, we feature half-man, half-legend and guest, the Financial Samurai himself! Financial Samurai (Sam Dogen) got his MBA from Cal and spent over 10 years working in the finance industry. After 13 years of working in Corporate America and living the "American Dream," money ceased to be a major driving factor. Instead, Sam wanted to live absolutely financially free. He fantasized about what it would be like to write, spend time with family, and travel, with little financial worries. Three years after starting FinancialSamurai.com in 2009? Mission Accomplished! Sam helped us cover a wide range of topics on this entertaining show, so when you play the new PB all the listeners go crazy! This week's show covers: Sam share the story when he finally realized what's really important in life and why he walked away from the "American Dream" and a six-figure income to pursue his own dreams, and ultimately, find true happiness The thorough planning steps and sacrifices Sam made includring a combination of savings, smart investing, and passive income that allowed him to leave the rat race and begin working for himself full-time "If your saving (plan) isn't painful, you're not saving enough" - Sam Lessons learned and wisdom gained from the $500,000 viral article read around the internet It was all good about a week ago, until we decided to wrap up the show with a discussion on "The New Rule for Engagement Ring Buying" Sponsor Special thanks to our sponsor, FreshBooks.
