Kristy Shen and Bryce Leung FIRE

Episode Notes:

Joining me today are two people whose accomplishments I admire and respect. Kristy Shen and Bryce Leung are ex-software engineers from Toronto who achieved financial freedom and retired early in their 30’s to travel the world. They are the writers behind Millennial Revolution, an educational blog on investing strategies and world travels. They are also authors of a newly released finance book “Quit like a Millionaire.” Kristy and Bryce share lessons learned from their FIRE journey, their travel experiences in the Galapagos Islands and what it means to leave a legacy.
