All December, we’ll be replaying podcast episodes about FI/RE. This week’s episode is episode 63, with Julien and Kiersten Saunders from rich & REGULAR, a blog by a “rich and regular” couple that seek to inspire better conversations about money.
Episode 63, REPLAY, of the Yo Quiero Dinero Podcast features Julien & Kiersten Saunders, the powerhouse couple behind the award-winning blog and forthcoming book, rich & REGULAR. Their mission is to inspire the African American community to consider and adopt the FIRE (Financial Independence, Retire Early) lifestyle as a path to building generational wealth.
The couple has used frugal living, real estate investing and their online business to set themselves on a path to achieving financial independence by 2021. Their story has been featured in publications like Forbes, the NY Times and CBS This Morning. When they’re not sharing stories about their experiences with money, they are parents to their son Beau, traveling the world or searching for their next great meal. You can follow Julien & Kiersten’s journey on their blog rich & REGULAR and check out their new YouTube series, Money On The Table. They’re also on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest!
In episode 63, Julien and Kiersten talked:
- Financial independence as a social justice issue—because when we grow our wealth and build our financial future, it’s never just for us.
- The purpose of financial freedom—we do this for our current selves, and our future selves.
- The experience of facing data that is not in our favor, as a woman of color—the statistics are against us, and yet, we’re still out here doing the thing!
- Wealth as an ASSET when it comes to driving change—because when communities of color build wealth, they are doing something revolutionary.
- And the creation and normalization of #blackwealth
I LOVED this conversation— Julien and Kiersten talked money and how it intersects with wealth-building, the tension in surviving capitalism by participating in it, and reflect on the current times.
