My blog is about helping people to feel more optimistic about personal finance. I use scientific research and my own personal experience to break down the barriers to saving money and investing. I originally created the blog to document my experience of trying to achieve ‘financial independence’ on an average UK salary. Then I came to realise the importance of having a positive relationship with money and how science and psychology of money can help with this.
I’m Tony, a friendly Spanish guy living with his girlfriend in the UK. I am on a super ambitious journey towards achieving a one million Euro portfolio. I’m conscious that I don’t need that much to become FI, but possessing a million has been an obsession of mine for a long time. I use my blog as a personal tool to help me do that while I improve my writing and meet other like-minded people. My main investing vehicles are Stocks & Shares ISA and P2P lending. Come and say Hi!
I am an already retired (old’ish) FiRE Starter. My blog is targeted at helping new and “mid journey” FiRE Movement folks to find the right investments to retire early. Also targeted at offering alternative ideas for early retirement such as alternative living locations. Providing information on cost of living and funds needed to retire comfortably. Each month I publish my actual investment return numbers and investment ideas.
Writing about our journey from teenage mum on benefits to retiring at 50ish. On my blog I share my experiences managing the family finances and mistakes I have made which include staying in the same job for 30 years and sticking with cash for too long. Despite not earning big salaries we are on target to FIRE after 12 years. Join us as we get ever closer.
As a mom, I want to have time for my family. I don’t want to be working full-time for somebody else. I don’t want to be disorganised. I don’t want to be unhealthy. This blog will provide you with all the information you need to live a better balanced life. The money making and saving ideas have been thoroughly tested and actually work and I will help you to get organised, get healthy and live the simple life you crave. Balancing time and life these days can be really difficult. Over 16 years ago I gave up my job to pursue a life of financial independence, allowing me more time with my family. On Time and Pence I share ideas on real, tried and tested money making ideas, money saving, getting organised and family health. Everything you need to live a balanced life and spend time doing the things you want to do.
FIRE isn’t all about saving every penny – but it is all about learning about saving & investing. My blog is aimed at helping people find their own path to FIRE – hopefully enabling them to take control of their money in the best way for them. Picking a different topic every 2 weeks and publishing, I hope to create a wide range of topics to help those on their FIRE journey. The blog is entirely free, with just a couple of affiliate links – if I think its really worth purchasing.
A journey to FI through the prism of the NHS, MedFI is not just for those in medical fields. We write about a broad range of financial and personal topics, hoping to inform and inspire those also aiming towards FI.
