G'day from Australia


#1

G’day everyone!

I’m stoked to find this community and feeling daft for not having joined it earlier!

I’m 32 yrs old and finally starting to earn a real wage after nearly a decade at Uni. That means making up for lost time building up wealth so I care become FIRE. I also blog about investing and PF at wealthfromthirty.com which is a place for me to learn and keep some kind of record of my journey getting my financial mojo on. There are tons of great bloggers and resources out there so I guess being a part of a community like this one is an awesome place to meet more people on similar journey. Plus it’s tons motivating, since 99% of the money talk in my life occurs online.

Look forward to chatting with you and some of the familiar faces from the blogosphere and twitter!

Good morning, or that’s top of the evening to you! Congrats on busting out of the ivory tower and getting your financial mojo on. I’m pretty new to this forum too, but it seems the perfect place to keep your FIRE burning. :slight_smile:
