Please join me on my journey to financial freedom and living the good life on a budget. I’m here to show you that it can be done, whatever the budget, and that you’ll be much happier with a more simple life – we can inspire each other!
I am not typical of the FIRE community. Unlike many, I have already amassed significant wealth. And for me retirement does not mean to stop work. I want to ensure my wealth goes as far as possible; I want to enjoy my lifestyle without compromising (so-called fatFIRE, by some), and I want to have as much freedom as possible – for as much work or play as I want, where I want, when I went, with whom I want.
I’m a 45 year old Average Joe who after becoming disillusioned with the Financial Sector and with no financial training became a DIY saver and investor in 2007. I started this blog in 2009 to hold myself accountable to 6 simple words – Save Hard, Invest Wisely, Retire Early.
