Guest Appearance on the FIRE Drill Podcast

Guest Appearance on the FIRE Drill Podcast

My year of opening up to podcast appearances continues to roll on!  Recently, I sat down with Gwen and J on the FIRE Drill podcast and we had a blast! I met Gwen from Fiery Millennials at FinCon last year shortly after she had hit me up about some questions she had on Panama.  She had an overnight stay there on her way to the Chautauqua in Ecuador. I hadn’t had the opportunity to talk to J previously, but knew her from her site, Millennial Boss, regardless. After binging on a ton of their FIRE Drill podcasts, I hit them up and somehow convinced them to let me on the show!  😉 It was great to talk to them and I’m hoping

Guest Appearance on the Countdown to FI Podcast

Man, I’ve been on a roll with these podcasts!  My latest appearance was on the Countdown to FI podcast and it was truly a lot of fun! Mr. and Mrs. CTF are some great peeps to talk to and talk we did! We stuffed a lot into this show with a lot of discussion that hasn’t been brought up in previous podcasts. Some of the conversation revolved around our countdown to early retirement and what our plans are. We discussed the bucket system along with a couple of the ways that we’re planning to pull money out of our retirement accounts early.  If you’re not familiar with the Roth IRA Conversion Ladder or Rule 72(t), we got into those a

Guest Appearance on the Chain of Wealth Podcast

I had an opportunity to appear on the Chain of Wealth podcast recently and it’s now live! If you’re not familiar with Chain of Wealth, they started the site in 2017.  Who’s “they” you ask? Denis and Katie, of course! They created the blog to walk through the story of Katie paying off her debt.  Their podcasts focus on interviewing folks that can help inspire others. I was excited to be a part of their show! In this podcast, of course, we got to talk about our plans for Panama.  But we also had a good discussion about the role of kids on the path to FIRE. There’s an impression that seems to linger in our society that kids make

Guest Appearance on the Retire Hoppy Podcast

Guest Appearance on the Retire Hoppy Podcast

A podcast with a beer theme?!  That’s music to my ears and exactly what the guys at Retire Hoppy are aiming for! If you’re not familiar with the Retire Hoppy site, that’s because it’s a little newer.  It’s run by Ted Carr and Roy Weinberg and is a spinoff of the Retirement Journeys blog and podcast. This was a really fun podcast to be on.  You can’t get anymore laid back than these guys. Ted and Roy are both retired and like to have a little fun.  And what’s more fun than talking a little finance and having some beer?! So what did we talk about?  Good question… Why early retirement is so important Why Panama?  That seems to be

Guest Appearance on the 2 Frugal Dudes Podcast

It feels like just a couple of weeks ago, I was telling you about my first ever podcast appearance… oh, yeah, I was!  Well, it’s time for my second guest appearance on a show.  This time around I joined the 2 Frugal Dudes as a guest on their podcast. If you’re not familiar, the 2 Frugal Dudes are Sean Merron and Kevin Griffin.  These are two great guys that aim to help their listeners in the personal finance realm. I met Sean at FinCon in 2017 and he graciously invited me to be a part of their show at some point.  That some point came and here we are today. The show was a lot of fun and we had

My First Podcast Appearance… DYEB!!

My First Podcast Appearance… DYEB!!

One of my goals for 2018 was to start opening myself up a little more and doing a podcast appearance every now and again. It’s one thing to read what a blogger has to say, but it’s another to actually hear him or her talking.  I know that I start to feel more of a connection with some of the podcasters and guests I listen to. The good news is that I met Pete from Do You Even Blog at FinCon this past year.  We got to talking and we discussed the possibility of me doing an appearance on his show.  We eventually lined up a date for late January to make it happen. Since this would be my first podcast appearance,
