This week we got to sit down and talk with Jim Blankenship. Among many things, Jim is a talented author having released three books and an accomplished blogger. Not only does he write for his own blog, Financial Ducks in a Row, but he is also a regular contributor to Forbes, The Street, and FiGuide.

We discussed his books some, but we also picked Jim’s brain about his experience with successful investors and financially independent investors. After all, this podcast is about the habits, routines, and choices that lead to financial independence.
