In today’s episode, we chat with B.C. Krygowski, MD about all things FIRE and frugality. She shares so many great tips her and her family have used to become financially independent, grow wealth and be happy at the same time. Don’t miss out as she shares how her family travels internationally on a budget and you can too!

In this episode, you will learn:

  • How she got started with the FIRE movement and how it has changed their life.
  • Why they decided to move from New York to Florida.
  • How her and her husband have been able to both work part time as physicians.
  • Why they are now moving further into the countryside in Florida.
  • How they take advantage of home exchange for international travel.
  • Why they are moving to Medellin, Colombia for the summer.

B.C. Krygowski is a part-time Physician who made many financial mistakes—yet somehow still ended up okay. Her mission with her blog is to inspire readers to take control of their finances so they too will have financial freedom. She shares what she’s learned on her journey in the hopes that readers will be encouraged and equipped to live their one, precious life to the fullest.

Often B.C. shares about frugality as she knows a thing or two about it after having grown up in a trailer set in a hay field in upstate New York. After high school, she became a Rotary Exchange Student to Germany and is still an intrepid traveler who advocates for home exchange.

B.C. obtained her M.D. from the State University at Buffalo and married her gross anatomy partner. As a Physician couple, B.C. and her husband play to their strengths. He’s the financial guru while B.C. is the frugalista writer. 

Nowadays, when she’s not writing fantasy novels or blogging about FIRE (Financial Independence Retire Early), B.C. is a part-time Hospice and Palliative Medicine Physician and a mother to two young boys.
