7 Things You Can Learn

Meet the FIRE movement, a lifestyle system followed largely by millennials thatís focused on the goal of achieving financial independence and retiring early.

FIRE adherents are uber-savers ― they save 50 percent or more of their income ― who strive to stop working for others sooner rather than later. They arenít interested in gaining more wealth in order to have more to spend; itís quite the opposite. They are intent on living their best lives for less. And it starts by rethinking their relationship with money, with an eye to achieving financial independence.

"It's tough to make predictions, especially when it involves the future." ~Attributed to many
"In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. But, in practice, there is." ~(perhaps by) Yogi Berra
"Those who have knowledge, don't predict. Those who predict, don't have knowledge."~ Lau tzu

Many are called to FIRE, few are chosen...

One thing I've learner is Ms. Robins and her publisher have a good PR firm.
The second edition of her book is due out and this is the fourth article I've seen her and it mentioned.
ďNo, not rich. I am a poor man with money, which is not the same thing"

So were were early adopters!
