A quick post to just let you all know that Aussie Firebug and I had a fun chat about early retirement, happiness and investing!
I came across Matt’s blog early on when investigating the Australian FI/RE scene. I have enjoyed listening to his podcasts since then.
Matt is about the same age as me, lives in Victoria and has been aggressively chasing Financial Independence for years now.
I fancy ourselves in a race to a million. A race which Matt is handily beating me in at the moment.
You can find the podcast at this link:
Honestly this podcast could have been much longer. I hope Matt and I can have another chat in a few years when we are both fully retired. At that time, we can reflect upon our journeys behind us and perhaps how our views have changed over the years.
Having an Australian specific podcast is so beneficial to building up the FI/RE community in Australia. This encourages smart people to get involved in producing even more great content around our specific issues with investment, tax and superannuation. So show Matt some love by dropping by his podcast page and leaving him a comment.
Keep fighting the good fight Matt.
