Hello from FI Heroes


#1

FI Guy and FI Girl here. We are in our mid 30’s and are working our way to FIRE (Financial Independence / Retire Early). We have been contemplating what would be enough for us to pull that trigger and now believe we are just about 18 months away.

We started a blog, http://fiheroes.com/, to share our journey to Financial Freedom with all who will listen in hopes that others will learn from our mistakes (Why should you repeat them?) and gain from our successes.

While we are currently posting anonymously, we do share lots of information with you. (Including our real numbers). Some day, post FI/RE, we may unmask ourselves.

We’re not setting out to save the world from supervillains, but if we can help just one person become their own super hero then our blog will have served its purpose.

We are excited to be part of this amazing community and hope you will follow us on our journey.

Welcome! I’m a few years behind you, so it will be fun to watch your journey.

Nicely designed site too!


#3

Welcome.

Love your blog, have visited a few times before. Keep up the good work!


#4

Thanks! We’re excited to be on this journey and to be able to share our successes and blunders with everyone. It’s been a pretty amazing adventure so far and we can’t wait to finally be able to FI/RE.

We’re still pretty green when it comes to this blogging thing but it’s been fun learning and meeting other FI friendlies along the way.

We wish you the very best on your journey.

Thank you so much. We really appreciate your feedback. As I mentioned to MyMoneyWizard, we are still fairly new when it comes to blogging and have been learning new things every day. It’s both humbling and rewarding.

We are so happy to be able to share our journey with you.

Thanks AmyB. We both love your site lifezemplified.com!

In particular we were pretty excited to see your article on the positive effects of coffee on stress (when consumed in moderation of course).


#12

Thank you! We’re getting pretty excited (and perhaps a bit antsy) now that we are this close to our FI/RE target. It’s been a journey getting here and it’s cool to know that our adventure is really just beginning.


#13

Thanks for the welcome. Excited to be here to share and learn.

Welcome, FI Heroes! :slight_smile:


#15

Thank you! Ah yes, moderation :wink:

Welcome. Just checked out the site a bit. 525 days will be here before you know it. Looking forward to reading more of your stuff!


#17

Thanks for checking out our site and for taking the time to comment; very much appreciated.

We can’t believe we are almost down to 500 days before our estimated FI/RE date. There are so many things going on with our jobs right now that it could get even more interesting soon. Just more fuel for the FI/RE. Stay tuned…

If you decide to unmask yourself can I be the bad guy who finally exposes you to the world?

Welcome to the forum and congrats on being so close to your goal!!
