There a few things more inspirational than hearing about another family’s real-life experience. Kiersten and Julien Saunders, the couple behind the finance blog, Rich And Regular, provide real-life inspiration to other couples and families on the journey to Financial Independence.

As marketing professionals, the Saunders used their income to aggressively eliminate their debt. Over the course of 5 years, they have been able to pay off more than $200,000 of consumer debt. More recently, they have paid off the mortgage on their home and they have added a new addition to the family, 11-month old Baby Bo. As lovers of life and travel, the Saunders are proof that the road to Financial Independence doesn’t have to absent from the simple pleasures of life.

In this episode we discuss:

  • How the Saunders started their FI journey
  • The Steps that they took to save money and eliminate debt
  • How visually mapping out their progress allowed them to stay focused on their financial goals
  • Why they made the decision to pay off their mortgage
  • How becoming parents has affected their FI journey
  • Their goals for achieving financial independence
  • How to manage workplace burnout with marriage and children and use it as motivation
  • The flexibility within achieving financial independence
  • The significance of still living a life you love while saving and preparing for the future
