I will teach you to be rich by Ramit Sethi

Wouldn’t I will teach you to be rich not be the best for FIRE? Isn’t fire more frugal living while Ramit shows how to get your finances in order while enjoying a good chunk? I love the book, I’m not a big fire person myself but I find Ramit being on the side of enjoying spending the money remaining which I presumed FIRE was all frugality.

Whole30 lasagna. I used [this recipe ](https://thefoodieeats.com/whole30-lasagna/) as the base but made some modifications to make it healthier and due to what I had in the kitchen.

Instead of 2 lbs of ground beef I used a lb of ground turkey and added in a container of confetti ‘rice’ from Whole Foods which is carrots, broccoli and cauliflower.)

I used JOI cashew base instead of making cashew cream and used heart of palm lasagna ‘noodles’.

Looking for advice…I have been told that transitioning into L&D should be “easy” given by experience and skills (20+ years in education as a teacher, counselor, district administrator, higher ed. program Director, Academic Affairs Assoc. Dean plus part-time instructional designer). I have an EdD in Leadership (School-system) and an MA in Counseling Psychology.

I have applied for various position levels from specialist to Director with no luck. Any ideas for what level I should be applying for?

Term life insurance question - I added the AICPA annual term policy last year. I've noticed personal finance media seems to push 10-20 year term and not discuss annual.

It was considerable cheaper up front and more at the end than 10yr per the fee schedule. If all goes according to plan I'll be at or close to FI within 5-7 years so not sure that I'd keep the full amount past then and would miss the benefit of the cheaper years at the end. Am I missing other risks of not doing 10+ term?
