Financial Independence

Disclaimer

I started the Playing with F.I.R.E website and podcast to share my story of my financial independence journey. My hope is, that my story can guide and inspire you on your own journey to financial freedom.

In saying this, there are a few things you should be aware of:

  • I do not provide personal investment advice and I am not a qualified licensed investment advisor. I am an amateur investor.
  • All information found on this website and podcast, including any ideas, opinions, views, predictions, forecasts, commentaries, suggestions, or stock picks, expressed or implied herein, are for informational, entertainment or educational purposes only and should not be construed as personal investment advice. While the information provided is believed to be accurate, it may include errors or inaccuracies.
  • I will not and cannot be held liable for any actions you take as a result of anything you read, watch or listen to on the website or from any context I produce.
  • Conduct your own due diligence, or consult a licensed financial advisor or broker before making any and all investment decisions. Any investments, trades, speculations, or decisions made on the basis of any information found on this site, expressed or implied herein, are committed at your own risk, financial or otherwise.
  • Playing with F.I.R.E is my personal podcast and website. It reflects my own views, ideas and opinions. It is not affiliated with any broker/dealer or registered investment advisor.
  • No representations or warranties are made with respect to the accuracy or completeness of the content of this entire weblog, including any links to other sites. The links provided are maintained by their respective organizations and they are solely responsible for their content.

It should be noted, that I want to remain as transparent as possible when it comes to any commissions or income I earn from the Playing with F.I.R.E website and podcast. I do not plan, nor wish to, because financially independent by "making a podcast about financial independence". This would be extremely hypercritical and I would feel I would lose any respect and authenticity if this were my plan. I started the podcast and this website because I have a genuine interest in sharing my story and helping people who wish to follow their own financial freedom journey. In saying that, I have hired people to help me run the website and podcast and also have other operating expenses related to the production of the website and podcast. Any income earned through commissions, affiliate links or otherwise will simply help me cover the cost of the podcast and website. Any additional profit made from the website or podcast will be either reinvested back into either the website, podcast or events, or otherwise given to charity.

Sounds fair enough? If you have any questions on this, please email me at [email protected].
