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.

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!  

Our content, courses, and events help people: 

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

Best Ugly Produce Delivery Service

When we first learned about financial independence, we started to analyze our spending. One of the first things that we realized was that we spent way too much on groceries. While I was doing research into Community Support Agriculture (CSAs), I stumbled across ugly produce delivery services, and found two companies in our area to test out. Here’s what I discovered.
