In this episode: mindfulness, removing judgement, thoughts creating reality, envisioning, awareness, and the hot seat. Oftentimes on our show we like to remind listeners that achieving FI isn’t an end all be all to one’s problems, and that reaching financial independence doesn’t automatically equate to happiness. An important part of the journey is the work you do inward along the way, and this week we are tackling what that can look like. This week we are joined by coach and host of Mindful Fire podcast, Adam Coelho, to discuss the important link between mindfulness and FI, and the power our brains have to envision the life we want, and put dreams into action. Taking the time to be aware of how you’re thinking and feeling can be an effective tool. It will not only keep you centered, but allow for you to be open to experiences you might not have thought were achievable. So whether you are familiar with mindfulness practices or are curious where to begin, allow this episode to serve as a resource to begin or strengthen your practice!

Every time I feel like I understand parts of reaching FI, along comes an episode that goes completely over my head. Off to read even more.
Very short sighted to say 5k take home is a reasonable expectation.
mandatory listen for all FIRE members
Normally love ChooseFi, but the guest this time was too focused on talking about herself, hubby, and kids and what they do/did.
Paula had some great info to share, but like most realtors (which she's not), she seemed to be attempting to justify the skyrocketing prices as the new normal. Apparently, as of 6/21, lumber prices are now plummeting faster than they rose. One would expect that alone to slow down the housing price inflation.
Napoleon Hill was a con man who made up literally every interview in think and grow rich. It's common knowledge that he never interviewed Carnegie, Ford, or any other of the "titans" he claimed.
Having trouble downloading this one.
I never thought to use instagram or twitter to find work. great podcast!
I bought my first rental property Jan 1st 2020. it's a triplex in St. Paul, MN. I'm house hacking with the lady and we paid $245,000 for it. it needed a little work but we moved into the rough unit and have completed everything but the bathroom remodel. we are now living in an almost 1/4 of a million dollar property and pay about $340 out of pocket after all bill's and cap x. we now own our own property and are able to save an extra $860 a month because we are no longer paying $1200 to rent our old apartment. I got laid off for over a month because of Covid-19 and idk if we would have been able to afford our apartment. House hacking has not only increased my net worth but it also saved us from needing to move into my parents house to be able to afford our other responsibilities.
what was the point of this episode
Really interesting episode that will literally save me a ton of money! Thank you.
You lost me at "we both had high salaries"... not relatable.
Excellent episode.. Inspiring.. its just math! taketh what the alley giveth !
good for you
I have enjoyed this podcast from the beginning but no more. They're more focused on politics and censoring people at their Facebook page
Great podcast but they have massively uped the number of adverts.
This podcast has truly disrupted my status quo in all of the best ways possible. I was never a good saver or investor. After finding this pod in 2017 my wife and I have made incredible financial strides and it's all owed to Brad and Jonathan and their super informative, easily digestible, game changing teachings. These guys come off just like regular dudes that are extremely interested in getting this super power out to as many people as they can. Thank you Jonathan & Brad please keep up the great work...the fire is spreading!
would of been nice to hear more of the how to and info on their portfolio
Great podcast! Connected with me.
