A lot of the time when you start reading about F.I.R.E. (Financial Independence Retire Early), the stories you hear about how people achieved it can be pretty insane. Many people in the community can take living on less and saving and investing every extra dollar to the extreme, which can seem pretty intimidating or just unrealistic. Why can't you enjoy the journey to financial independence? Why can't you work towards building wealth and having more financial security without making so many sacrifices?
Luckily I have Jamila Souffrant on the show, founder and podcast host of Journey to Launch, who shares that it is possible to work towards financial independence and enjoy yourself at the same time. In this episode, she shares what inspired her to achieve F.I.R.E. and how her strategy is a bit more sustainable (and fun!) than some of the more strict paths others may take. Because at the end of the day, life is short and we need to enjoy every bit we can! It doesn't have to be an all-or-nothing situation. You can work towards having a better financial life, without having to sacrifice your happiness or comfort for years until you reach your goal.
