Today is our 200th episode of the main show. Thanks to all our listeners for downloading and leaving reviews! We have a spectacular guest for this milestone.
Finance is one of our most popular topics on The Dad Edge. We go through years of education and training for our careers, but we’re never taught about how to best use the money we make, and sadly, we rarely take active steps to find ways to increase our income.
Grant Sabatier is the founder of MillennialMoney.com and is financially free at the age of thirty-five. He says that the “old school” retirement narrative is obsolete and is with us to talk about his book Financial Freedom: A proven path to all the money you will ever need.
