Today's episode is something a bit different. Terry, the host of the Wealth Time Freedom (WTF) podcast interviewed me a few months ago. The response was so positive from that episode that I decided to repost it on my show. In this episode, Terry asks me about becoming a dad, my recent pivot with work and my new perspective on FIRE. I found it to be a great conversation, and I hope you'll enjoy it too. Links Podcast - Wealth Time Freedom (WTF) www.aussiefirebug.com/podcast ..read more

Today, my guest is none other than my accountant, Clayton! Clayton and I have talked about doing this podcast for a while. I pay him thousands of dollars each year to help with tax planning, structuring our investments and businesses and other strategic decisions that ultimately help me reach FIRE sooner. I thought it would be interesting to chat to him about what role an accountant can play when someone is trying to reach FIRE, and explore why certain decisions were recommended for our family in terms of tax advice and planning. Some of the topics we cover in today’s episode are: The diffe ..read more

I've been thinking about this post for the past 18 months, and to be honest, it's long overdue. So much has changed over the last 11 years since I first stumbled across FIRE. And if the podcast's feature image wasn't obvious enough, I recently became a father.  So, now is the perfect time for a big update/recap on life at the Firebug household. www.aussiefirebug.com/podcast ..read more

Today’s episode is very special to me personally. I’m speaking with my dad about how he grew up and what money and life lessons he learnt along the way.

My guest today is Dr Toni Lindsay. Toni is a clinical psychologist who works primarily with people who are at the end of their life or have a severe illness (usually young people!).
