Two year ago, Jacob quit his job. He and his wife Michelle sold their house and everything they own. Then, they hit the road to travel full-time with their three kids. Check out this Slow FI interview to learn more about their story.
Saving more money isn’t just about expediting your journey to FI, but enhancing it. It can provide you the opportunity to buy more freedom now by designing your life. Focusing on the big three expense categories can help you accomplish that without going too far to the extreme.
I’m an aspiring minimalist who is passionate about social justice. This is why I’m going to vote with my dollars this year and buy all consumable (food and drinks) gifts from black-owned businesses.
I’m excited to publicly announce that I’ve decided to quit my part-time job and take the leap to “full-time” entrepreneurship. I was originally planning to wait until the summer of 2021 to quit. In this post, I share why I decided to take the leap to entrepreneurship now.
I’m excited to share a Slow FI interview from Michelle (who writes the blog FIRE and Wide). Michelle took a Slow FI path to reach financial independence and now realizes that she could have transitioned even earlier.
In order for travel to be affordable, we need to plan ahead. The biggest three travel costs – accommodation, transportation, and food – are the biggest three expenses. If we plan ahead, we can cut those costs significantly. Surprisingly, planning ahead can even make a trip more enjoyable.
Getting ourselves into a better financial position is important. It’s equally important to focus on improving our current circumstances while we do it. It could take a few months or years to get us into a financial position to transition. We can actively focus on improving our current circumstances while designing lives we love.
For people pursuing financial freedom, reaching full FI can be such a temptation (even for myself at moments). This is why I’m always interested in hearing the stories of people who are choosing to downshift along the way to FI. I’m so excited to share Court’s story. Court and her family were less than 1 year from reaching full FI when she decided to downshift and take a part-time job.
There are so many things that we’ve learned in our second year of pursuing financial independence! One reason I love blogging is that it’s a great way to chronicle my own journey and mindset shifts. Writing also helps to solidify those mindset shifts for myself.
