Financial Mistakes We’ve Made | MHFI 165

Doug and Carl talk to Kyle Landis-Marinello about the (mostly financial) mistakes each of them have made.

  • Kyle recounts an interview gone bad and learning about personal finance/financial independence late in life
  • Carl’s scarcity mindset, not spending enough, not taking much time off, and selling Apple stock to fund a real estate purchase
  • Doug describes a house purchase and subsequent foreclosure
  • Other mistakes: Miscalculating student loan repayments, stopping contributions to retirement accounts in down markets, analysis paralysis
