  1. Hey Joel,

    Just want to reach out and say Thank You. I handed in my resignation the same week you were on the BP Money podcast. I was very nervous about quitting my job (still feels weird). But I will never forget you said: “My worst case scenario, is everyone else’s regular day”. I think of this whenever I second guess my decision. Helps a lot!

    Keep on keeping on,

    A fellow Joel

    1. Congratulations!!! This comment made my day 🙂 Always excited to hear people replacing fear with flexibility! I think so many people in the FIRE space work longer than they need to. Good luck, and keep me posted on your journey.

      1. Thanks Joel. Will do.

        Yep, I’d rather work not enough, than accidentally overwork. I can always go back if I need to!

  2. Hey Joel,

    I listened to your podcast on BP on a recent road trip and loved your story! Solid content all the way around and I can’t wait to dive in and catch up on some of your many posts.
