In this Slow FI interview, you’ll hear how David (from CityFrugal) changed careers, recovered from burnout, and built a life he loves, all while working full-time.
In this post, I share our approach to investing. My hope is that it can help you see that investing in the stock market does not have to be complex. While there is still volatility and risk, it will help you achieve your long-term goals.
Essentialism doesn’t mean we just do less. It means we are making the “wisest possible investment of time and energy.” It’s definitely about more than just doing less. It’s about making our best contributions to the world, and we can only do that by figuring out and doing what is essential.
In this Slow FI interview, Chris Mamula discusses his path to FI, what he’d have done differently, and advice for people along the path to FI.

I just finished the first official launch of my group coaching business. Not only did I have a successful outcome, but I learned so many things through the process. Most importantly, I overcame many limiting beliefs that could have held me back and didn’t.
