Welcome to the fourth episode of Millionaires Next Door!
Today I’m chatting with Julie Rains, a freelance writer specializing in investing and mortgages from North Carolina. She has a finance degree from UNC Chapel Hill and has had experience working in financial analysis and accounting for Fortune 500 corporations, as well as personal experience in stock investing and paying off a mortgage.
She shares her financial advice based on her own experiences and expertise on her blog Investing to Thrive, and she’s joining us today to tell us how she and her husband became millionaires.
Some key takeaways from our conversation:
- Her top strategies for achieving millionaire status before turning 40.
- Why her friends would be surprised to learn she and her husband have achieved millionaire status.
- How she managed to pay down her mortgage AND save for retirement AND afford sending her kids to college – a triple threat, indeed!
