My name is Steve and I have been rummaging around for FIRE blog community for about a year and a half. Being a junior in college, I have had a very early start to my pursuit of FI/ER. This has caused me to reevaluate everything that I was taught about success, happiness and basically life in general. I can’t thank this community enough for influencing this awakening!!!
Some of my favorite blogs include MMM, Budgets are Sexy, Financial Samurai, ThinkSaveRetire, Retireby40, OurNextLife, Miss Mazuma, Financial Libre and Frugal Woods. Believe me though, there are more!!!
Just to prove that even a youngin like myself can run with the BIG DAWGS, like most of you here on the forum, here are some of my stats:
1.) Maxed out Roth for 2016 and 2017
2.) Paid for every college expense so far on my own without the help of loans or the Bank of Mom and Dad
3.) Paid for two used cars in full (thank you kind soul who rear ended my clunker)
4.) Just started participating in my companies 401k with a 40% withdrawal!
