First of all, pun intended.
This is the biggest news I’ve shared with you all to date and I’m SO PUMPED for what’s in store over these next couple of months! Long story short, I have teamed with up Grant Sabatier, creator of Millennial Money and author of Financial Freedom to promote the launch of his new book and to join him on a 3-month book tour around the country. I will be leaving my corporate job in January 2019 and diving headfirst into the world of entrepreneurship. Wish me luck!
Financial Freedom Book Tour
The Financial Freedom Book becomes publicly available on February 5, 2019 and the book tour spans from March 5th to June 4th. Here’s everything you need to know!
What is Financial Freedom All About?
Grant’s book, Financial Freedom, is a comprehensive guide to achieving financial independence in the quickest and most efficient ways possible. It is the book that you give to someone who’s asking “where do I start?”. Grant covers topics such as expense tracking, money habits, calculating your retirement number, increasing your income, cutting expenses, investing, entrepreneurship, tax optimization, real estate, travel hacking, and so much more in an easy-to-digest, actionable form.
More importantly, though, a common theme throughout the book is that time > money. If you’ve been reading my blog, you know that this concept is extremely important to me. Once you understand how money can buy you hours of freedom, not just material things, your whole financial mindset shifts. Grant really hammers this idea home and illustrates how the financial choices that you make now can impact your hours of freedom in the future.
After all, it’s really the psychology behind money that limits people from achieving financial freedom and retiring early. The math isn’t difficult at all: save as much money as possible, toss it in a Vanguard index fund, and ride out your investment returns for eternity.
Unfortunately, it’s not that easy for most people. But now, with Financial Freedom, people can learn to retrain their minds and dominate their financial future!
Note: If you pre-order the book, you gain access to a bunch of sweet perks and exclusive content!
Financial Freedom Book Tour Agenda
The Financial Freedom book is set to release on February 5, 2019, by publishing company Penguin Random House. Then, almost exactly one month after its launch, on March 4th, Grant and I will hit the road in his refurbished, 1980 Westfalia VW van.
Pretty sweet, right?
Here is a list of the locations and dates we plan to visit (flexible). You can check out everything about the trip at https://financialfreedombook.com/tour !
How to Get Involved
As Tour Manager, I am responsible for promotion and event planning. I am currently planning events at bookstores, libraries, universities, high schools, community centers, you name it – all around the country! Additionally, Grant and I are also coordinating group meetups with like-minded individuals around the country (just like you) to talk about the book and give out free copies.
But, in order for this book tour to truly succeed, we need your help! My knowledge of many regions around the U.S. is limited to what the internet tells me. I don’t have the local expertise, connections, or the capacity to know every single city inside and out. This is where you can help out big time!
If you have a favorite bookstore, university, high school, or library in your area, tell us about it! We’d really appreciate your input so that we can connect with the best venues around the country. Please don’t hesitate to shoot a quick email to cody [at] millennialmoney [dot] com with your ideas.
Also, if you have a FI, FIRE, or personal finance meetup group in your area, we’d love to meet up and chat. Like I mentioned above, our tour schedule is flexible and we’d love nothing more than to meet thousands of like-minded people on this 3-month journey!

Financial Freedom Book Tour Goals
Now you understand how you can help our cause and our mission, but why are we doing this in the first place?
Basic personal finance should be a human right. Every single person deserves to have at least a rudimentary understanding of saving, earning and investing. Since Grant has teamed up with the largest publisher in the world, Penguin Randomhouse, we now have a chance to make this dream a reality.
With the book as a foundation, Grant and I hope to transform thousands of lives during the tour. Seeing us talk, explain, live, and breathe these financial ideas will hopefully leave an indelible mark on our audiences. As co-speakers, we highlight both ends of the financial freedom journey. Grant is living proof that these concepts actually work, and I am the guinea pig at the beginning of the maze.
No matter what happens, this Financial Freedom Book Tour is going to be the experience of a lifetime. And once again, if you’d like to recommend a venue, meetup, or just an idea, don’t hesitate to reach out at cody [at] millennialmoney [dot] com! See you on the tour!
