Financial Resilience Daily Show

New episodes are usually released daily, Mondays through Fridays. We may alter the cadence as needed, and will be releasing regular ChooseFI episodes on Mondays when appropriate.

Earn More

The best way to work towards FI is by increasing your income potential. Many in our community have found ways to increase their employment income. Others have worked side hustles, started businesses, or invested in real estate and the stock market.

Spend Less

While earning more is important, it's also important to not let your expenses creep up. In fact, many in the FI community have significantly reduced their expenses in the areas of housing, transportation, and food, as well as travel and subscription services.

Enjoy the Journey

The path to FI is not one of deprivation. Rather, it is one where we are living our best lives by being happier and healthier, even as we become wealthier. Intentionality, relationships, community and lifestyle design are crucial ways to get to FI on your terms.
