In July 2017 I met up with an old friend who was making transformational changes to his finances & life. He started the conversation with “so have you met Mr. Money Mustache?…”
Little did I know that it would lead to a pursuing a wealth of information & taking massive action by following a powerful movement known as FIRE (Financial Independence Retire Early).
FIRE is profoundly changing our lives for the better and allowing us freedom, not just financially but in mastery of all aspects of life. Call us a cult if you want, but we look forward to sharing our success stories as we conquer every aspect of our lives and achieve greatness.
To get you started in understanding it all:
