Hello and welcome to the Financial Freedom blog! I am in my mid 20’s, a simple dude from Estonia, who started investing at 2014. I’m documenting my journey towards financial freedom. I will show you everything, full transparency.
Fancy lending money to relatives, co-workers, famous athletes and infamous criminals via an estonian P2P lending platform? Not your average investor did just this and writes about the pros and cons of it, with a pinch of his special sens of humour.
Play a game with the Monk in which you have 2 lives to lose and plenty of insight to win.
As a 30 something millennial-finance-lawyer-turned-blogger, I’m saving, investing and seeking new opportunities. Hopefully, that’s also you. With the English Investor, the idea is to form a community to navigate the mess changes that we can expect in the next few years, in the United Kingdom but also in Europe.
I live in the UK, am in my 40s and have been looking at my life and how I seem to have spent more of my time working and no time ‘doing things I love’. Yeh, its probably that ‘mid-life crisis’ that people talk about. The break-up of my 20-year relationship and being made redundant has changed my mind on all this and made me realise I need to make FI my goal and release me from the work treadmill.
My name is Dan and I’m 42-years old. I live a normal life in the beautiful countryside of the South East of England, with my wonderful wife and three young children (three girls 6 years and under….. yikes!) There’s one overarching reason why I am obsessed with the topic of achieving financial freedom and retiring early: “I want to spend my time with people I love, doing things that really matter”.
If you’ve seen my previous blog – steelkitten.typepad.com – you’ll know that DH and I achieved our dream of buying a smallholding in July 2016. We moved to rural Lincolnshire and give full credit to penny-pinching for getting us there. This blog charts a new chapter in our lives as we strive to achieve our new goal of retiring early. I write about penny-pinching, money-saving, budgeting, smallholding life, personal development, and retirement planning.
