  1. Great episode! I just finished Jim Collins book Simple Path to Wealth and I only wish I had this when I was in 20’s or 30’s. Choose FI podcast has opened my mind on how to become FI even at the later stage of life I am in. I live in Portland Oregon and to hear that Jim Collins will be here is so exciting the only problem is he’s working on a documentary not giving a presentation. Keep up the great work Jonathan and Brad so I can keep getting 1% better each day.
