I made two big mistakes when I was pursuing financial independence…

The first was I put off happiness until I hit FI.

The second was I also put off my health.

In today’s episode of the Financial Independence Podcast, I chat to my personal trainer, Doug from Monumental Strength.

Doug has spent the past two years taking me from a puny computer programmer to a strong, healthy weightlifter!

It’s been a fantastic journey, with numerous unexpected benefits, so don’t wait until FI like I did. Start focusing on your health now and drastically improve your journey to FI (and your life beyond)!
