Irish Financial Independence & Personal Finance Podcast

Irish Financial Independence Podcast

Welcome! My name is Michael and I am on a journey towards financial independence.

In 2018 I started my journey towards financial freedom. I was sick of selling my time for money and realised that through the power of compounding interest, I could work towards financial independence.

For me, the most important thing my money can buy is freedom for myself and my family. My ultimate goal is to build a portfolio that can cover our annual expenses - at that point, we will be truly financially independent.

I record podcast episodes and provide monthly updates on my FI progress. Join me as I discuss my journey towards financial independence and hear about the challenges and successes I have along the way.

You can also sign up to my monthly newsletter for free and receive regular updates from me to your inbox!
