Taylor & Scott Rieckens started a very public journey towards FIRE (Financial Independence Retire Early) a few years ago.

They developed a documentary entitled “Playing with FIRE” that received high praise from publications like the US News calling it one of the “Top 10 Best Finance Movies of the Decade”.

Nicole and I wanted to check in with these two filmmakers, parents, and financial independence enthusiasts and see how their FIRE journey has progressed over the past few years.
