Hey Chicago Peeps!
Many of us have written that it is hard to get our families or friends onboard with the FIRE movement. I’ve been thinking, why not just make new friends? I’m a firm believer in leading by example so I am reaching out to all of you…want to be friends?
This is the start of a local Chicago chapter so we can gather, chat, book exchange, and what not. I plan to set up some kind of gathering once a month whether it be a hike, picnic, potluck, or happy hour (all frugal ideas considered!) so we can chat about weird things like money and early retirement. No need to commit to every gathering - just know it’s available should you want to come along and maybe bring a friend we can slowly convert…like the true FIRE cult that we are.
Lets start 2017 off in the right direction. Get a “real life” outlet to discuss your interests and join the community that supports them. Oh, and as an added bonus you will be privy to the faces behind all the anonymous names…come on, I know you’re curious!
