Why FI Is Not An All Or Nothing Proposition With Chris Mamula

  • Reading time:7 mins read

Chris Mamula author of the book Choose FI: Your Blueprint to Financial Independence joins the show to discuss his FI journey & why he says FI is not an all-or-nothing proposition.

Finally, the ChooseFI Book is the official blueprint to FI and a must-read!

Chris Mamula Episode


Chris Mamula used principles of traditional retirement planning, combined with creative lifestyle design, to retire from a career as a physical therapist at the age of 41.

After poor experiences with the financial industry early in his professional life, he educated himself on investing and tax planning.

Now he draws on his experience to write about wealth building, DIY investing, financial planning, early retirement, and lifestyle design at Can I Retire Yet? (Winner of the 2019 Plutus Award for Best Retirement Blog).

Chris’s writing has been featured in MarketWatch, Doughroller, Business Insider, and RockStar Finance.  He is also the primary author of the book Choose FI: Your Blueprint to Financial Independence.

Also, he documented his own path to financial independence at Eat the Financial Elephant for several years before leaving his career as a physical therapist in 2017.

Lastly, his mission is to continue to spread the life-changing message of financial independence to a broader audience while staying true to the blog’s core principles.
