Jason from the site The Wealth Hound also hosts the Everyday Money Show podcast.
The first time I heard the show, I knew I wanted to be a guest. He’s a natural at talking to people and you’d think he’s been doing this for years.
We had chatted a little bit over Twitter and email and we finally had the opportunity to meet at FinCon this past year. But believe it or not, we didn’t even have time to squeeze in a beer together while there… unbelievable!
Fortunately, I got to be part of his podcast, the Everyday Money Show, in mid-December. This was kind of exciting because it was just a couple weeks before I was leaving my job for good.
Talking with Jason was great. Although he’s newer to the podcast scene, you wouldn’t know it by listening to him. I anticipate that his show will continue to grow pretty quickly over the next year or so.
We had a lot of fun discussion about several topics:
- Why did I decide to retire early and how did I go about making it happen?
- Is one million dollars enough to retire on?
- Some details on our plans to move to Panama in the summer of 2019 including how expenses and income will come into play. Also, what happens if it doesn’t work out? What about schooling for our daughter?
- Preparing for some big risks of retirement:
- Stock market volatility – with a shout out to Fritz’s bucket strategy as well!
- Am I nervous about early retirement and the move to Panama?
- Some thoughts about saving toward financial independence and building income.
- What are our plans for staying busy in early retirement?
I had a really good time talking to Jason. On top of that, I’m getting a little more comfortable doing podcast appearances – here’s a link to all of the shows I’ve been on so far. I’m excited to continue doing these in the hopes of motivating others on the path to financial independence.
And, of course, I’d love to hear your thoughts on this appearance. Have a listen and hit me back in the comments…
