Grant Sabatier (born December 13, 1984) is an American author, podcaster, and entrepreneur.[1][2][3][4][5] He is best known for his international bestselling book Financial Freedom which was published by Penguin Random House on February 5, 2019 and has been translated into 8 languages. Grant Sabatier founded personal finance website Millennial Money, hosts the podcast Financial Freedom, and co-founded BankBonus.com.[6][7][8][9][10][11]

Life[edit]

Grant grew up in Falls Church, VA, went to George Mason High School, and then attended the University of Chicago where he studied Philosophy.[12][13] In 2010, at age 24, Sabatier was unable to find a job, so taught himself digital marketing.[14] Several months later, Sabatier was hired at a digital marketing agency. After reading over 300 personal finance books and realizing that retirement seemed unattainable at his current salary, he quit to start a consulting business.[15] Despite the rapid growth of the consulting business, Sabatier consciously avoided lifestyle inflation. By saving more than 80% of his six-figure income, Sabatier amassed $1.25 million and reached financial independence by age 30.[16]

Works[edit]

Publication[edit]

Sabatier has written a book, Financial Freedom: A Proven Path to All the Money You Will Ever Need, which has been translated into 8 languages and is popular in the FIRE Movement. The book chronicles Grant's journey to reaching financial independence at a young age and includes a step-by-step framework designed to help readers do the same. In 2020 LinkedIn Learning optioned the rights of the book and released a course[17] designed around its content.[18][19][20]
