I have read several “how I’ll reach Financial Independence in just 5 years” posts. Most of them were written by young, high-earning men who lived very frugally and didn’t include children in their calculations.
The article that received the most interest here on FIREhub.eu last month deals with exactly the same topic of retiring early in 5 years, but is written by a married man in his late forties who has a big family of 6 children (yes, six!). His article deals both with quite general questions and ideas to consider when FIREing, but also with his real numbers and his specific situation.
How I’m goint to retire in 5 years by FI UK Money is our blog post of the month for Ferbruary 2020 – enjoy reading!
