Early FI – Find Your Beach

by FI Fighter on October 19, 2018

When it comes to early FI, I think the end game for all of us is to find a way to maximize our time on this planet. As everyone well knows, time is finite and thus the ultimate currency in the Game of Life. Over the years, more and more folks are realizing this stark truth, and I think that’s why the concept of FIRE (Financial Independence Retire Early) continues to grow in popularity and more and more peeps are out there attempting it.

I’ve been blogging about my own FIRE journey since 2012, and well, I can honestly say that [click to continue…]

On this blog, lately I have emphasized and re-emphasized over and over again the importance of focusing our early FI efforts on accumulating World Class Tier 1 assets. Although this concept may seem simple in nature, you have no idea how easily this is [click to continue…]

Geographic Arbitrage.

Earn high inflation passive income and live in a location that experiences only modest rises in cost of living (COL).

I think more and more people are slowly but surely getting this concept, especially millennials who are [click to continue…]

Although to a large degree I’m someone who always kind of has enjoyed working hard, I knew within a few years of working in Corporate America that it wasn’t the life for me long-term. When you’re working for someone else and constantly under the microscope, it’s oftentimes not smooth-sailing, and if you’re one of those people who prefers autonomy, there’s naturally going to be a lot of dissonance there with that type of employer/employee arrangement.

Sure, I endured the 9-5 culture for a few years — Working extra hard, never complaining (at least not at work publicly), and just [click to continue…]

Peace of Mind – True Freedom

by FI Fighter on June 12, 2018

in Real Estate Thoughts, Thoughts

On the journey to early FI, there is such a HUGE focus on accumulating wealth and building up our cash flow, net worth (or both) every step of the way… There is absolutely no denying that “money talks”, and for many of us, we won’t have the courage and conviction to walk away for good from our day jobs until we have amassed enough F U money…

For so many of us, quitting our jobs and [click to continue…]

One thing that I’ve learned as an early FI blogger through the years is this — If you want to be liked (and popular), keep churning out and regurgitating the same content that is universally accepted and liked by the masses. Deviate from the road most travelled, and well, you’re going to have your fair share [click to continue…]

Early FI is the ultimate dream… It’s something that has universal appeal and everyone wants it…

But as the years go by, I’m learning and experiencing first-hand just how tough and arduous a task accomplishing that wonderful end goal is becoming…. Right now, I’m back in the Bay Area, and I’m astounded on a daily basis just trying to grasp how expensive everything has gotten in such a short period of time… You know, when I walked away from my job for good in early 2016, a six figure salary in the $130-150k/year range used to be pretty impressive…

These days?

I’m hearing on a regular basis from some of my former colleagues and friends that they are now pulling in [click to continue…]
