454: Finance Friday: We Spend $12K a Month...Can We Still Retire in 10 Years?
Tyler and Jenna need to know how to retire in ten years or less so they can spend less time working and more time with their family. The problem? They’re spending more than $10,000 monthly in expenses, and even with a high salary, that hurts their bottom line. But, a bigger problem to take care of is the six-figure savings sitting in their bank account, not bringing them any closer to becoming financially free. So, what should they do next?
Today, Mindy is joined by her husband, Carl, as these lucrative lovebirds advise a young couple who just had their first child and are looking to speed up their early retirement timeline. Tyler works in finance, taking home a stable income, and Jenna runs her own business that’s still expanding. They want to increase their incomes, invest more, and move closer to early retirement, so where do they start?
With three FI-friendly investment options—index funds, short-term rentals, and syndications—Tyler and Jenna can use any (or all) of these to multiply their wealth. But, one of these options poses a substantially bigger risk than they may think, and Mindy and Carl feel that they MUST warn this couple about it before they pull the trigger. If you dream of hitting FI in a decade or less, this episode can help you get there!
