Couple Money Podcast

With the FIRE (financial independence/retire early) movement growing, many families are wondering if it's an option for them. Today we look at the key numbers parents need to consider when pursuing financial independence while raising kids! 

What choices do we need to make as a family now to become financially independent?

Helping me to dig into this is Jonah Kaufman. He’s a financial advisor at Coastal Wealth Management. 

And while he’s not here for specific financial advice – that’s something you need to do one on one since everyone has unique financial circumstances – we are going over some things to consider and talk about as a family.

In this episode we’ll discuss: 

  • 5 big myths and misconceptions people have about financial independence
  • Two key numbers to keep an eye on for early retirement (and income is not one of them!)
  • How you two can create a FIRE plan that fits you

Hope you enjoy!
