Mr. Money Mustache (Replay), Founder of MrMoneyMustache.com

Hope everyone is having a great kick-off to the Fourth of July holiday weekend! I wanted to re-air the episode with Mr. Money Mustache, which continues to be one of my most popular episodes to date. Also, I interviewed his wife Mrs. Money Mustache last week and she offers some juicy nuggets about their relationship dating back to when they first started out as a couple at age 19!  For those of you who may have missed this one, I have no doubt you’ll love it!

Without a doubt, today’s guest is going to make you smile… He is a thirty-something retiree who now writes a personal finance blog with a cultish following, goes on 2-month long vacations, and occasionally takes on cool carpentry projects to keep his creative juices flowing!

Sound too good to be true? Well, he’s the real deal. It’s Mr. Money Mustache…

I actually met him personally a couple of years ago when I flew out to interview him in his home in Colorado… He’s a down-to-earth, good-natured guy, with a great sense of humor and a healthy amount of self-confidence. And how can you not love his alias? Mr. Money Mustache… although he does go by Pete in real life.

Three takeaways from this interview:

  • How Mr. Money Mustache was able to retire at age 30! And the rules behind his religion also known as mustachinism?
  • The cultural forces that pressure us to spend beyond our needs.
  • What drives happiness and why a lot of us have yet to figure out the whole happiness thing.
