New Member Hailing from Charlotte NC


Hello everyone! Chad here from Charlotte, NC just getting started on my FIRE journey. I recently started my own blog “Broken Road to FIRE” and it’s going to really help me stick to my guns and get to my FIRE goals. It’s mostly going to start out with story time and life experiences. As I start to learn, I’ll try to pass on my interpretations.

Big thanks to the Rockstar Finance team for making an awesome resource to connect with others in the FIRE community.
