Doug and Carl interview friend, fellow Longmonster, and FIRE legend Mr. Money Mustache (aka Pete Adeney).
When Tim Ferriss interviewed Pete, they ended by talking about Pete’s desire to own a local community gathering space. This is the jumping off point for the Mile High FI conversation.
But, they go a lot deeper too. No talk about index funds or the 4% Rule. That stuff has been covered.
Instead, this conversation is about happiness, journeys, and meaning.
Quick note: Do you enjoy Mile High FI? Do you hate it? Either way, supporting the show is a great idea! You will feel better about yourself. Also, Doug and Carl will be thankful to you forever. Maybe even longer.
