We went campin’ (well, Joe and Doc G did) and dug up some inspiring and amazing money stories from fellow campers. We are live today from Camp FI (financial independence) and Joe and Doc G (Earn and Invest) hear from four people about their journey to financial independence. One couple didn’t start saving for retirement until age 50 and retired at age 60, one woman has been living abroad for 20 years after initially thinking she’d be there for 1 or 2, and two women share their massive debt payoff stories. These are sure to inspire and motivate you in your own journey and it was a blast talking to each of them.
