Life-hacking Europe. Finding the best country to study, work, invest and retire in. Which means: how to reach Financial Independence in Europe. Interviewing people who have achieved FI in Europe: business consultants, bloggers, investors, business owners and employees.
Welcome! Olá! Yet another personal finance / FI / FIRE blog! Yes…there are many over there. Let us introduce ourselves. Me and Mrs. Firecracker are a family of 2 in our early 30s, we are both proud Portuguese and we are newly weds who have decided during our honeymoon to start this blog. Personal finance has always been a topic dear to us and has kept us busy investing and saving since our early twenties. Do you want to follow our journey?
I blog about how to become financially independent in Switzerland. I talk essentially about real estate and stocks. I have a different point of view because I dislike frugality, I prefer working hard and investing my money instead of saving pennies. | Je documente sur un ton décalé mon chemin vers La Liberté financière en Suisse. Chemin principalement axé sur l’investissement immobilier et bourse. Je suis contre la frugalité et je me bats en travaillant sur pour bien investir plutôt qu’économiser des petites sommes.
FIRE Sweden is a blog detailing the journeys of Frugalisten and Swiwi, on their different routes to FIRE. One of the main focal points of this blog is Sweden-specific advise (tax law, investment vehicles etc). | FIRE Sverige är en blogg där Frugalisten och Swiwi delar med sig av sina båda resor mot FIRE. Ett av bloggens fokusområden ligger i att lyfta Sverigespecifika saker som pension, skatterätt, olika investeringskonton, osv.
My blog is about compounding wealth, financial independence and the occasional bit of unconventional financial wisdom. I write about personal finance issues for what one might describe as ‘Medium-Net-Worth’ people, or those who aspire to be so. i.e. self-directed investors with a few million. I’m an ex financial services professional, so I’ve seen a lot from the inside. It’s somewhat UK focused when talking about tax rules, but is otherwise quite relevant to other Europeans.
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.
Finanzen? Erklärt! is about achieving financial independence with equity investments. The author sees financial independence as a two-stage process: the accumulation stage which is then followed by the capital consumption stage. Although the blog addresses the whole lifecycle of financial independence, the focus is on the development and presentation of innovative withdrawal strategies that allow for maximum capital consumption while minimizing the risk of bankruptcy.
Hi, I’m Backpack Finance. It took me 5 years to reach financial independence through saving, investing and living the magical minimalist lifestyle. I now have the freedom to choose where and how I live my life with little to no concern for money and you can do it too. All it requires is some basic knowledge, a small push, some guts to go against the herd and viola, you are there.
