WELL REGARDED WITHIN THE ASPIRATIONAL FIRE MOVEMENT: The authors are featured in a documentary about the Financial Independence Retire Early (FIRE) movement, titled Playing with Fire (www.playingwithfire.co/the-documentary), which is due to be released in June 2019.

Shen covers the most frequently asked questions from readers, including what to do about healthcare, childcare/schooling, and housing; information for anyone who wants to live abroad or have the unconventional lifestyle of his or her dreams, and even how to relocate to get more bang for your buck if you’re staying in the United States.

“Quit Like A Millionaire is about so much more than making money, traveling the world, and retiring early (although it teaches you how to do all three insanely well!). It’s a new roadmap to living an awesome life! You don’t need to settle for status quo. Life’s too short for that; so don’t. This book will both inspire and entertain you, while actually giving you the steps and mindset to become a millionaire. Retiring early isn’t easy, but it’s never been easier in history to make it happen. There’s no fluff here. This is the real deal.”—Grant Sabatier, author of Financial Freedom; creator of Millennial Money
“When your money and priorities are in sync, you find financial peace; I’ve taught that principle for years.

“There’s nothing better than a financial book that comes from a place of storytelling instead of preaching, and Kristy Shen and Bryce Leung elevate the art to new levels in Quit Like a Millionaire.

“Becoming a millionaire isn’t magic… it’s math.

Quit Like a Millionaire contains all the tools you need to master your money. Even more importantly though, it’s Kristy’s personal story—from living on $0.44 a day to retiring early at the age of 31—that will inspire you to break free from your own excuses so that you can start living a life you never dreamt was possible.”—Brandon Ganch, founder of the MadFientist podcast and website
