My guest today, Physician on Fire, is a former anesthesiologist, family man and supposed outdoor enthusiast who spends way too much time indoors, especially now that he is quarantined in Northern Michigan. He attained financial independence at age 39, meaning that he could afford to retire comfortably after a 9-year career. He continued to work for various reasons, but eventually, he chose to retire early at the age of 43. Prior to the COVID-19 epidemic, he was touring Mexico and Spain with his wife and two boys. Currently, he is holed up with them in an undisclosed location in Northern Michigan.

In this episode, you will learn:

  • What POF has been up to since retirement.
  • How much money do you really need to retire?
  • How the quarantine is a miniature version of what your retirement could be.
  • What changes you need to be aware of regarding savings and retirement due to the pandemic and economic changes.
  • How to select the best investment choices for FIRE.
  • Why it’s so important to pay off student loans as soon as possible.
  • What’s next for POF and his family?
  • What tips they have for home-schooling/world-schooling their kids.
