This a concise and very well-written book on early retirement strategies. It features the familiar extreme saving, but also adds three new ways you might be unfamiliar with – and that you might blend for an even more powerful FI strategy (I did!)
“Retire? But a [corporate employee] career is an important part of life and personal development!” In this episode, I explore and refute many arguments for the automatic growth-value of being a highly-specialized, 60+ hours/week employee.
My next two episodes might also interest you: one is on immediate retirement, the extremer version of early retirement extreme and the other on super frugal travelling in developed countries.
More generally, if you are into ERE, you are into going beyond gimmicks/hacks and into frameworks, principles and philosophy. Well, Valiant Growth is all about that! Personal finance is part of the mix, but you will find a similar level of depth in my discussions of other key areas for growth and happiness: psychology, relationships, productivity and goals, to name a few.
The show has experienced a significant growth spurt over the last week! A big thanks to those who share the podcast on social media, like on Facebook and Youtube, and leave a review on iTunes! Since I can’t afford to advertise, and am hard to find through organic search just yet, this is my main means of increasing reach, so all of you are doing me a great favor.
Also, the format is changing starting this week, where I am transitioning from 4 episodes/week to 5 episodes/week! Each episode will be released from Monday to Friday, by at most 5 PM UK time (GMT +1, currently).
Also, each Saturday, I will be featuring a “guest podcast”, where I take a podcast episode that I’ve found great value in, add my own pitch as an intro, and share it with you. This might vary, of course, on whether I can get permissions, but I do have a couple already lined up.
The takeaway: Valiant Growth is being worked on to be your DAILY source of information, inspiration and encouragement!
