Investment tips for retiring early

This episode is Part 1 of our discussion with travel YouTubers, Stephanie and Gillian. The pair subscribe to the financial independence movement and have been able to retire before the age of 40 so they can spend their days travelling the world. Our discussion begins with the ladies giving some insight into their past careers as well as what tactics they used to live such frugal lifestyles. This then leads to Steph and Gill highlighting some of the investment strategies they utilised in order to fund their lifestyle and what mistakes they made along the way. The episode culminates in a great discussion relating to how we should all reflect upon our purchasing behaviour and decide whether it is actually improving our happiness.

What we talk about
  • Living frugally and avoiding lifestyle inflation
  • Investment do's and don'ts
  • The need to reflect on the purchases you make daily
