For our Family FI segment this month, we’re talking about achieving financial independence with kids. A lot of people out there think that you have to choose one or the other. “You can’t have financial independence if you want to have kids” or “you can’t have kids if you want to have financial independence”.
My guest today completely disagrees with that sentiment because he’s walking, talking proof that you CAN have both.
Jim White from Route to Retire is my guest today. He’s a father, husband and recently he left his 9-5 job after becoming a millionaire and reaching financial independence at the age of 43.
As young parents, we can easily lose our identity. If we’re not feeding, clothing and cleaning up after our children, then we’re at our full-time jobs grinding away trying to pay the bills.
Where is the “me” time?
When do I get time for my hobbies and interests?
That’s what I’m exploring today with my special guest, Mark Bovair.
Mark is a single father of 3 who hails from the great state of Michigan (like me). Personally, I really enjoy his conversations and perspective around fatherhood, balancing work with a pursuit of your passions and discovering who you really are.
