London FI May ONLINE Meetup: The Corona Edition
12th May 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Since it’ll be a while before we’re back in the pub together, we’re taking our meetups online for the next few months. Sessions will take place via Zoom, and will follow the usual format as far as possible: a short presentation, followed by an informal discussion.
Our topic for May is a general catch-up with members, discussing recent events from a Financial Independence perspective:
* How is everyone doing?
* How has the coronavirus lockdown affected your FIRE goals? (impact on savings rate, FI date, etc.)
* Has FIRE ‘proved itself’ in recent months? How well have FI principles prepared you for the current situation?
* What opportunities have you been able to take advantage of during lockdown e.g. learning a new skill, finding a new income stream?
* Knowing what you do now, would you make different financial decisions to prepare for future emergencies (e.g. prioritising investing over debt repayment, having a more conservative asset allocation…)?
We’ll also be introducing the topic of our June meetup: the Side-Hustle Challenge!
In the spirit of Meetups, this will be a face to face session, so please enable your webcam and microphone and be prepared to say a quick hello to the group.
For security purposes, the meeting URL will not be published on the meetup page – please RSVP to the event to see the link.
