Burnout is on a lot of our minds right now. And, it’s especially bad for women. 42% of women and 35% of men report feeling burned out often or almost always. Even though we don’t always have the agency to change things, there are still things we can do to help our minds and bodies recover from burnout. In this post, I share six strategies to help you become more resilient in the face of challenges.
When I first learned about FI, rich & Regular was one of the very first blogs I found. They had incredible passion and genuine care for their audience and community. Over the last couple of years, both Julien and Kiersten have quit their jobs to become full-time entrepreneurs.
I’m here to pull back the curtain and share how we manage our finances. Most of these practices were already in place before I got involved. Now that I am more aware and involved, I now realize how lucky I am to have a partner who has been so conscientious about our finances. It was Mr. Fioneer who set us up for success from the very beginning.
Rebecca and her husband recently left their salaried jobs to transition fully into part-time self-employment. This allows them to enjoy work they find meaningful and enjoy their life outside of work.
With all of the uncertainty with COVID, our previous travel hacking strategy no longer works. We can’t plan the trip and then solve the puzzle of how to fund it. Because we know the power of credit card rewards (when you use them responsibly), we knew we wanted to figure out a new strategy for our current times.
I started my FI journey after Carl (from 1500 Day to Freedom) retired early. Our philosophy was inspired by his advice to slow down and enjoy the journey. In fact, he called his own FI journey a “death march to financial independence” and urges people to avoid making the same mistakes.
Sometimes, it feels like day-to-day progress is slow. This is why I love reflecting back. It help me realize just how far we’ve come. There are so many things we learned and accomplished in our third year pursuing FI!
When I think of the gig economy, I usually think of driving for Uber, shopping with Instacart, walking dogs with Rover, or charging scooters. started thinking differently a few months ago when I heard from Emily Kirk. When Emily shared that she worked in the gig economy as a nurse, I knew I needed to learn more.
I have seen poverty with my own eyes, and it has been hard to reconcile with my cushy lifestyle. I’ve made progress in changing my thought process, but I still struggle to reconcile my privileged life with those living in extreme poverty. These experiences will always be like a stone in my shoe – slightly uncomfortable, always keeping me on my toes, and reminding me how fortunate I am. But it doesn’t mean I need to avoid money or let beliefs about scarcity limit me.
