Marc started a website design blog in 2007 as a side hustle and left a job he hated in 2008. Pretty fast, right?

He now mainly runs the Vital Dollar, his blog on managing money, saving money and money-making side activities.
Marc will share his story on how he managed to leave his job so fast and how he has been able to launch several other blogs since then (yes, I ask him about his secret recipes for success! 😉). We will also discuss what key aspects to look after if you are thinking of launching your own successful side hustle whether in the form of content creating or in the form “brick and mortar” type of activity. … More How to start your successful money-making side business in 2020 with Marc
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. Even though I do not have kids myself I really like the topic of teaching kids about money, because childhood to me is where your core beliefs and thoughts about money (and other topics) will be shaped. So it all starts from there. … More What early retirement feels like and how to make your kids money savvy with Doug and Carol
