Prioritizing Family with Financial Freedom Carlos Fuego is an emergency room doctor with a superpower—the ability to realize that money doesn’t buy happiness and family time is far more important than the status of being a doctor. He realized that his kids viewed him as a roommate and his wife resented that she had to run the household while he was working, so he took a step back, figured out what truly mattered, and pursued that, instead. Carlos is now living his best life, practicing the amount of medicine he wants to, when he wants to, and leaving in time to be home with the kids and help his wife run the household so she can live her best life too. Carlos shares how to figure out what you really want in life, and the changes he made that brought him closer to his family, and happier than ever.   In This Episode We Cover: The history of his grandparents and how it shaped his whole money story The importance of education in their family On graduating college debt-free What happened when he became an attending physician How much he was making and saving while traveling abroad Talking with his kid about the career to pursue What brought him home after traveling abroad His financial position when he moved to California The moment he discovered financial independence How he reconciled with the idea of giving up his job completely to be financially independent His asset allocation before and after financial independence His assumptions around passive income How his wife's business plays into his overall position And SO much more!
