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

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
