Hey, new to the forum…


I’m MrFIREby2023. I just started a new “FIRE” Blog:


Hi, I’m new here. I stumbled across this forum from another personal finance site (though I can’t remember which one). I’m passionate about personal finance and retiring early and I currently work in the mortgage industry. What a great community here! :).


Hey, everyone! Glad to be here. I’m Moose from and I’ve regularly checked RSF for over a year now but somehow missed that there was a forum. I was an Army Captain and investment banker/investment analyst so I have a background in finance, but the FIRE movement was a revelation to me.

I’m actively growing my blog and really enjoy meeting others from the FIRE community.

Have a good one!

Hi Everyone!

My name is Mia, and I am really excited to be a part of a community that is all about budgeting and personal finance.

I live in the Bay Area, and many of my friends have a small interest in personal finance but none that I know of who are striving for financial independence. My goal is to be able to have enough financial means to do the things I love full-time, buy property in Hawaii with my boyfriend and cat, Kona, and live the island life.

I am an Office Coordinator and I finally have a job that I love doing because of my co-workers and my management team. I get to write blogs in my spare time (, and hope to move up in the company to make more income and save even more. I am currently maxing out both my IRA and 403b, and hope to reach my goal of $200K in the next 5 years.

It’s awesome to see other’s on the same path :smile: definitely motivating.


Hi Mark!

Where in the Bay Area are you? I am located in Rodeo. Nice to meet you! Going to check out your blog. :slight_smile:


Considering I do not know how to start a topic, this is my maiden voyage on the sight and this is my effort at a short intro as well as my primary topic of the day:

Married 50-year old with 3 boys. Wife is a stay-at-home. One boy in his 30s, the other two in college. Live in the Midwest but grew up in the Carolinas. Want to get back there within the next 5 - 10 years. Semi-retired engineer with zero debt and a fairly tidy nest-egg.

Primary Topic: For those of you who’ve retired early and do not have access to Medicare yet, what have you done to address health insurance? I refuse to go on the ACA but have been looking into sharing ministries as these are considered acceptable replacements. Whole family is healthy and children will only be on our insurance another 3 - 4 years. Also, I have heard there are short-term replacement insurance plans being created as a bridge between trashing ACA completely and coming up with a viable alternative.

For those of you who are in the same boat, any info you can provide would be of great assistance.
