Our episode of Bridging The Gap this week is F.I.R.E.! Chris Mamula is a 41-year-old retiree who joins me to share his story of saving early in order to retire early so that he could enjoy doing more of what he loves.
He shares his mentality around saving, insights to make us better financially, and how we can drive financial literacy in our community.
Chris Mamula used principles of traditional retirement planning, combined with creative lifestyle design, to retire from a career as a physical therapist at age 41. After poor experiences with the financial industry early in his professional life, he 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 at Can I Retire Yet? He is also the primary author of the book Choose FI: Your Blueprint to Financial Independence. Chris has been featured on MarketWatch, Morningstar, U.S. News & World Report, and Business Insider.
