Blog Post of the Month – Janurary 2020

Somewhere in your journey to FIRE, you most probably do the maths to see when working for money would become optional. Some people, including bloggers, even have a countdown, counting the years, month, days until they can quit their job because they have saved enough money to live off. But what if something changes on the path to FIRE? Are your calculations correct? What if the money you saved is not enough!? Weenie from Quietly saving is getting nervous as…

Blog Post of the Month – December 2019

“Everybody needs a budget!”, “build up an emergency fund of 3 to 6 months of expenses”, “renting is better than buying a house” – these are just some of the opinions and advice you can read on personal finance blogs. But is the (finance) world all black and white, or are there shades of grey, exceptions to the rules or cases where it depends? The blog article that received the most interest last month here on FIREhub tries to debunk…

Blog Post of the Month – November 2019

“It’s a bad plan that cannot be changed” says an Italian proverb. A young FIRE blogger from Norway had the ambitious plan to retire within 5 years, when he would be 36 years old. He wrote down a detailed plan how to realise this goal. Now, a little over half a year later, the blogger changed his plan. He reduced his FIRE number, i.e. the amount of money he thinks he needs to retire early, and also touched a well-known…

Blog Post of the Month – October 2019

Every first day of the month, I open the statistics that reveal – among many other data – the article here on FIREhub.eu that has been most clicked on in the last month. Every time I am curious when I open this statistic: Will it be a blogger interview? An article about the joys of early retirement? A more philosophical or a more practically orientated article? This month, it was definetely an article that falls in the latter category. The…

Save a lot, invest wisely and in a couple of years you can say goodbye to the job you hate: no more commuting to work, no more boring meetings, annoying bosses or co-workers! You have done the math, you will use the 4% safe withdrawal rate and all will work out perfectly. There are already bloggers who retired early, this proves that it’s possible. You just need to be 100% focused on your goal and your growing net worth. Most…

Blog Post of the Month – August 2019

Is it possible to stop working for money, i.e. retire early because you are financial independent, by the age of 40? Is this only a plan for IT guys who earn 80k+ salaries or can this dream come true if you earn an average salary of 40k per year? Would it still possible if you had kids? Or a student debt you had to pay down before you can really start investing? How would a side hustle impact your journey…

Blog Post of the Month – June 2019

Most of us are somewhere on our way to Financial Independence and Early Retirement. And some have already reached this goal, they stopped working in 9-to-5 jobs. No wonder that bloggers who retired early receive a lot of interest in our community. Erith is one of these early retirees, she quit her job at age 56. That was already some years ago – time for her to look back on what she has done with all of her free time.…

Blog Post of the Month – May 2019

Which blog post featured here on FIREhub received the most interest last month? Well, it had a title beginning with “get rich”, this promise is always an eye catcher. It also mentions a private jet, a Lamborghini and a bottle of Moet et Chandon. However, the blog post then talks of the “wooden leg” syndrome, to stop making excuses and start taking responsibility for our own situation. It then dives deeper by citing a passage of a psychology book published…

Blog Post of the Month – April 2019

So, a little later than usual we present here the blog post that received the most interest last month. It had the provocative title “FUCK the 4 % rule – My Detailed Plan For How I Will Become Financial Independent In Only 5 Years!” and received a…
