291: Unschooling: Learning Off The Beaten Path – Joshua Sheats

In the third and final installment of our three-part series, Joshua and I dive even deeper into the vast array of knowledge Joshua has acquired over the years, both through his own research and his real-life experience educating his own five children. Enjoy!

Joshua is an expert financial planner who teaches normal people how to seamlessly connect the science of financial planning with the joy of goal achievement. He is the host of the Radical Personal Finance podcast and, as you’ve heard across this three-part series, is also passionate about education and worldschooling with his five children.
