Sunday is for Sharing is a weekly roundup of my favorite articles, videos, and podcasts I read, viewed, and listened to over the past week.
This week features one blogger pointing out the fact that you can just be a “sometimes traveler” even if you’re financially independent, a story about how two park rangers are pursuing financial freedom, and much more. Enjoy!

“While popular FIRE blogs do a great job of selling a nomadic lifestyle of perpetual travel, don’t let those exciting blogs alter the course of what you find fulfilling in life. You don’t have to travel all the time to have an amazing life!”

“Basically, FinCon is a convention where financial media of all types meet to geek out over everything from new apps, monetizing, SEO, creating fabulous content, and all sorts of other stuff. But that’s not all it’s about…”
“We want to be on our way to financial independence, with the hopes of retiring in our early 50’s…”

“I am going to try and put all the 401K benefits into perspective. We need to shift the mindset. There is much, much more than the match…”
My Favorite Podcast
An interview with Tim Urban, the writer behind Wait But Why. In this interview, Tim discusses the the concept of thinking from “first principles” instead of just doing what everyone else is doing, as well as the importance of thinking like a “chef” instead of a “cook”.
I could listen to Tim talk for days, he’s a contrarian thinker who challenges conventional thinking on many different topics. I highly recommend giving this episode a listen.
That’s all for this week, thanks for reading 🙂
