03 – Locating Yourself on the Path to FI

In this episode, the guys in the FI Garage sample some fresh beers and discuss how to locate yourself on the path to Financial Independence by assessing your knowledge and analyzing your financial situation with our Canadian twist. We outline the directions you’ll need to take on the way to FI. If you found this podcast you’re probably familiar with the FI/RE movement that has grown in popularity recently. Here at the FI Garage, we’re all on the path to FI, however, we consider the RE part optional.
