Being part of a cult isn’t something you’d normally want to flaunt, but if you’re part of the FIRE community, today’s guest leads a “cult” that you’d love to be in, because you value saving money, finding your “why” in life, and seeking financial independence. Even if you aren’t part of the FIRE community, you’ll recognize today’s guest.

Pete shares how the blog started and shares some of his recent posts as well.
