Mr. Money Mustache gets some positive feedback from a reader, who shares exactly what he's done to increase his net worth.

Episode 261: Is This Blog More Powerful Than Doubling Your Salary by Mr. Money Mustache (Similar to Unshakeable with Tony Robbins).

Mr. Money Mustache is a thirty-something retiree who now writes about how we can all live a frugal, yet awesome, life of leisure.
He and his wife studied engineering and computer science in Canada, then worked in standard tech-industry cubicle jobs in various locations throughout the late ’90s and early 2000s.
Then they retired from real work way back in 2005 in order to start a family. This was achieved not through luck or amazing skill, but simply by living a lifestyle about 50% less expensive than most of their peers and investing the surplus in very boring conservative Vanguard index funds and a rental house or two.

The Mad Fientist shares how cognitive bias affects personal finance.

Episode 247: Cognitive Bias by The Mad Fientist (The Brutal Truth About Sales & Marketing and its Effects on Your Money on this Planet).

The Mad Fientist analyzes the tax code and looks at personal finance through the lens of early financial independence to develop strategies and tactics to help you retire even earlier.
Most personal finance advice is geared towards people retiring in their 60s or later and doesn’t apply to those of us pursuing early financial independence. The Mad Fientist is focused on providing advice and innovative tax-avoidance methods specifically for people wanting to break away from full-time employment very early in life. He also hosts the Financial Independence Podcast.
