The Courage to Take Action | EconoMe LIVE with Doc G | Ep 488

In this episode: courage from community, what to do next, overwhelm, finding community, and the evolution of FI.

Live from the EconoMe Conference in Cincinati Ohio, Brad is joined by Jordan “Doc G” Grumet and a room full of passionate members of our community to discuss finding the courage to take action in your FI journey. While we understand money can be a north-star for many early in your venture towards FI, what happens once money is no longer the root of your goals? Where do you shift your focus to next? Well, sometimes finding answers to these questions is a little easier when you have help from some of your friends. Listen along as Jordan, Brad and our community speculate on their ideas for what their next steps are.
