PodCast – How a Tiny House Can Help You Become Financially Independent and Retire Early: Introduction to the FIRE movement with Diania Merriam

I’ve been wanting to introduce you to the FIRE movement for quite a long time, and I finally found the guest to do it! If you haven’t heard of it, FIRE stands for Financial Independence Retire Early. It’s a movement dedicated to extreme savings and investment and it allows people to retire far earlier than traditional budgets and retirement plans allow. My guest, Diania Merriam, is both a participant in the movement and is also in the process of organizing a conference to share these ideas. FIRE is very applicable to the tiny house movement and Diania is here to tell us all about it!
