We’re joined by fellow Atlantans- our friends Julien & Kiersten Saunders! They started their site Rich & Regular back in 2017 after they threw themselves into the financial independence movement and paid off $200,000 in debt. They’ve been featured virtually everywhere- the Times, the Atlantic, Bloomberg. They’re successful speakers, created a fantastic Youtube series called Money on the Table, and now they’re about to be published authors! Their book “Cashing Out: Win the Wealth Game by Walking Away” comes out next week. In the book they write about creating your own career path, making peace with your finances, and building wealth on your own terms. During this interview we discuss Julien & Kiersten’s introduction to the FIRE movement, avoiding imposter syndrome when creating content, and how to actually know if it’s time to cash out by quitting your job.
- Julien & Kiersten – Learn more about the Saunders over at their site: RichAndRegular.com , and their book is available for pre-order, set to publish June 14th.
- Extra cash – And regardless of where you are on the path to financial independence, we believe in the responsible use of credit cards. It’s smart to utilize the additional benefits that credit cards offer- for instance the 60,000 points that come with the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card. That’s $750 when you redeem through Chase Ultimate Rewards! This is no joke- I’ve already done this myself which we discussed on a recent episode after I met the initial spending requirements of $4,000 over 3 months!
