Publisher's Summary

Choose FI: A Blueprint for Financial Independence

A common resolution set at the beginning of a new year is to “get my financial house in order”. But how can you build a house, let alone pour any kind of foundation, without a blueprint? There are dozens of books and gurus trying to push their advice and tell you how to spend and invest your money. And then, there are three suburban dads just trying to make the world a little bit better. 

Meet Brad Barrett and Jonathan Mendonsa of the award-winning ChooseFI podcast and Chris Mamula of the popular blog Can I Retire Yet? They have walked the talk and now want to share their knowledge with you. Together, these three regular guys will show you how they made the relatively simple choices to reclaim decades of their lives, and how you can too.

Distilling the best of the popular ChooseFI podcast, this audiobook pulls from the collective knowledge of those who have decided to build a lifestyle around their passions instead of allowing their finances to dictate their future. These stories demonstrate universal principles, giving you the opportunity to pick the elements that are the most applicable to your financial situation and “choose your own adventure”.

The audiobook covers a wide range of topics that will help you build a strong financial foundation:

  • Developing a growth mindset
  • Defining your values and aligning them with your spending
  • Cutting years from your estimated retirement date
  • Questioning the status quo on “required expenses” 
  • Cutting travel expenses and putting family vacations within your reach
  • Learning how to earn more and live with abundance
  • Updating the common accepted wisdom on college education and the debt associated with it
  • Cutting through the noise on investing to discover strategies that work
  • Showing how to implement investment strategies that enable the lifestyle you desire while controlling downside risk

Whether you have mountains of debt now or are recently debt-free and wondering what to do next, Choose FI: Your Blueprint to Financial Independence will give you the information to guide your next move.

Choosing FI, Better every Day

I loved the organization of the book. It takes a large amount of great information and brings it together into useful actionable steps to improve every facet of the FI lifestyle. As a pharmacist who took out way too much in student loans, it hit on many levels for me to find true value and purpose in my life, and I relate a ton to Jonathan I’m feeling the weight of a career that looked great on paper but has been different in practice. I look forward to getting closer to FI every day moving forward with lots of help from ChooseFI

Good message but the voice sounds arrogant

I don’t know why Brad and Jonathan allowed this guy to write the book for them. This guy confessed that he wanted Brad and Jonathan to fail in the beginning as they beat him to the punch and message of choosing FI. Also the voice is quite arrogant, I felt that he’s not coming from a position of a friend or trusted adviser for the listener, I felt I’m listening to a guy trying to impose his lifestyle to the reader. Maybe he’s a good guy but it doesn’t sound like it. It’s his first book, hopefully the second one will be better. Also no need for us to know about your underwear talk, that’s such a big turn off from the listeners.
