The simple way to get a low-risk diversified exposure to the stock markets is to invest in a low-cost index fund. Now for those who want to take it further or can afford to take more risks, you can invest in individual stocks. These are in my opinion more interesting to dive into but as well more time-consuming as you will need to dive into more financial reports and business reading.
If that sounds exciting to you and want to get started with stock analysis, you are in good hands: Howie our guest writer for today will help us find and assess these underpriced stocks. … More Analyzing an Investment from a Value Point of View

In today’s episode, we will speak to my friend Doug Nordman (AKA “Nords”) and his daughter Carol Pittner.
Both of them have had military careers as navy officers (Carol is a reservist at the moment) and Doug has been retired since 2002 at age 41! Carol is currently in her late 20s and already rapidly approaching financial independence as well.
We will discuss what it feels like to be retired at a young age, how Doug worked his way towards Financial Independence before the FIRE movement was a thing. We will exchange both interesting and fun anecdotes with Carol on how it was to grow up in a money-savvy environment. Topics will include frugality, Financial Independence, financial literacy throughout childhood, investing in the stocks markets through various recessions,…so all in all a lot of valuable information brought to you in an easy to understand conversation.

So it all starts from there. … More What early retirement feels like and how to make your kids money savvy with Doug and Carol
