You are going to learn about money (maybe even "all") regardless of where you are. The knowledge you pick up here will, put simply, be more valuable... likely "most."

One fact to keep in mind is that your savings are a large part of your success, especially in the early years. Find the right balance for how much risk you're willing to take in search of better returns over the long haul.

So, Zwil, tell us about yourself and what sorts of things you are wanting to learn about with respect to money.

Directions specific to your question:
Go to "Fire and Money" forum
Click on 2020 Performance YTD.
You will learn about the history of money, how to Retire Early and how to rethink options (possibly go back to work, but rarely an option here).

There was a time I studied the Bible. There are actually 7 definitions of love in the Greek language. When translated to English, we picked the one size fits all definition of love. So pick one for your relationship with money.
