Toginet Radio interview with Steve Jorgenson

togonet_logo.jpgHere is a 15-minute Internet interview about Findependence Day with Toginet Radio’s Steve Jorgenson, which aired this morning (Sunday, August 18th).

It you have difficulty accessing the clip, just go to Toginet.com and check the schedule for Sunday, August 18th: the 11 am time slot. It’s under Recent Shows over to the right.

The clip contains interviews with three authors: the Findependence Day interview with me is the second of three, and you can go directly to about the 19.48 minute mark on iTunes if you don’t have time to listen to them all.

The host does a nice job in teasing out where the name Findependence came from, to explain what the expression “Freedom, Not Stuff” means, the need for financial literacy, the difference between retirement and findependence and other things.

Why Findependence is a Better Goal than Retirement

Here’s a guest blog I wrote that’s just published on the Retirement and Good Living site, a boomer lifestyle site whose audience is 75-80% American with the balance Canadian. The theme is of course why, especially for younger folk, Financial Independence may be a more accessible, less threatening goal than traditional Retirement. The link is here.
