Track your path to financial independence: validate investment assumptions, deal with debt, and track progress.

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.

"Why didn't I know this 10 years ago?"

That’s one of the things we hear about the most from people who realize how simple the path to FI can be. Sure, 10 years ago might have been the best time to start. The next best time to win back your financial freedom? 


Take A Small Step Every Week

There is no special secret sauce for earning your Financial Independence. Instead, it's a series of small simple steps that add up in a big way over time. Sign up for our action tips and we'll walk you through each step, week after week.

Listen to Episode 100

If you are new to the concept of FI, episode 100 is a great place to start. Brad and Jonathan break down why FI is such a liberating and achievable concept, and how just about any one can do it.
