I’m James, late thirties single male working towards FIRE since mid-2018. I blog about the fugal habits, investments and property investing ambitions that I am involved in while striving to maximise my free time. I am also in the process of minimising my life, changing my habits for the benefit of the environment and learning new DIY skills.
From drowning in debt to gaining financial control this blog charts a real-life financial transformation and the lessons learned along the way. The author started the site to keep himself accountable, while struggling to keep up with even the minimum payments on his consumer debt. Six years later and he’s paid off his debt, bought his first home and has savings and investments for the future.
I achieved FI, quit my career, sold everything and moved to Valencia, Spain to fulfill a dream and live a slower-paced, higher-quality lifestyle. I write about Spanish Culture, European Budget Travel, Financial Independence, and Mindful Living.
Banker On FIRE is not a website about saving money by giving up coffee, discount shopping or holding a garage sale. Living well within your means is crucial but there are plenty of other amazing resources on the web that can teach you the basics of budgeting and saving money. What I choose to focus on is making good financial decisions that generate substantial wealth increases over a long time period. I hope I can help you do the same.
