Podcast aired October 9, 2019.
Chris Mamula is the lead co-author of the ChooseFI book and a financial writer for Can I Retire Yet? In this in-depth interview, Chris explains how the FIRE movement developed, and how the principles of traditional retirement planning, combined with creative lifestyle design, allowed him to retire early from a career as a physical therapist at age 41, and pursue his passion for teaching others about financial independence.
After poor experiences with the financial industry early in his professional life, Chris educated himself on investing and tax planning. Now he draws on his experience to write about wealth building, DIY investing, financial planning, early retirement, and lifestyle design. Chris’ writing have been featured in MarketWatch, Doughroller, Business Insider and RockStar Finance.
