Recently decided to take the plunge and start my own blog! There’s a lot of millennials out there (and females, like me ) and most of the blogs I see are of people who have already FI/RE’d and more passive. I like side hustles, extreme travel hacking, and bank/broker hacking, etc. Also, I think more women need to be aware of or enticed into FI/RE – it’d be good for a few FI/RE minded friends who are trying to find partners, and just good in general. We represent 50 percent of the population, why aren’t we 50 percent of FI/RE folks? I think it’s because we don’t have that many examples, and I hope that changes.
I’d like to encourage us all to work a little harder, and retire in under a decade. Our twenties is the best time in our life to work hard without the responsibilities that we need to face when we’re older.
