How necessary is money in order to be happy? That’s one of many questions we’re asking our guest today- Wes Moss. Wes is the host of his own podcast “Retire Sooner” as well as “Money Matters”, the country’s longest-running investment radio show. During this episode we learn about his childhood growing up alongside the Amish, and how that piqued his curiosity as he began writing and researching for his latest book, “What the Happiest Retirees Know”. Wes starred on the Apprentice, is a father of four, and is now the Chief Investment Strategist at Capital Investment Advisors which is a fee-only investment firm w/ over $2.8 billion in assets under management. But during this episode we’re going to really focus on the specific habits that we need to begin cultivating now in order to lead happy and fulfilling lives.

- 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 80,000 points that come with the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card. That’s $1,000 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!
