The journey to financial independence

should be as remarkable as the destination

The journey to financial independence should be as remarkable as the destination

Don't delay happiness until you reach financial independence

Feel like you need to achieve FI before you can make changes to improve your life?

Let’s bust that myth.

We can show you how.

I heard about Coast FI from the Fioneers in 2020, and it has completely changed my life. At the time, I was overworked and stressed out with a 50% savings rate on the path to FIRE.

After downloading their calculator and realizing I had already reached Coast FI, I was able to downshift my work, lean into flexibility and freedom now, and let compound interest do the heavy lifting for the next few decades.

Now, I’m self-employed and make enough money to cover my little family of three’s living expenses on less than 15 hours or work per week. I wouldn’t trade this flexible lifestyle for anything.

One key milestone is Coast FI

Hi! We're the Fioneers.

Our friends call us by our first names, Jess and Corey.

Since 2018, we’ve helped thousands of people design lives they truly love along the way to financial independence!

Most importantly, we walk the talk. Between the two of us, we’ve worked in nonprofits, taken career breaks, worked part-time, started passion-based businesses, taken leaps to self-employment, and built out a campervan!

And… We’re less than 50% of the way to FI. We’re living proof that you don’t need to be FI to design a life you don’t want to retire from.  

You can utilize financial freedom to design your life along the journey

The Ultimate Guide to Buying Food in Bulk

Growing up, my family lived in Costco. As a child, I would spend my weekends at baseball practice, hanging out with friends, and on a family trip to Costco. I learned quite a bit about buying food in bulk from my childhood. Because it’s what I’ve always known, it was not until recently that I came to appreciate the value of buying food in bulk.

Make Work WORK for You

In this Slow Fi interview, I talk to Liana (from DINKs on a bus) about how she has made work WORK for her. In the interview, we discuss how she quit a highly prestigious job that wasn’t working for her, changed careers, set clear boundaries, and decided not to pursue management roles. Liana is a great example of the fact that you don’t have to become an entrepreneur to design your life.

Don’t Defer Your Dreams Until FIRE

Ingrid retired early about eight years ago at the age of 43. As we got chatting as I was traveling through Albuquerque, she said, “I wish there had been more info about Slow FI when I was coming up.” Of course, I wanted to learn more. That conversation turned into this interview about what Ingrid has learned and what she would have done differently.
