Lighting a FIRE under your financial goals
Abstract: Many people have been rethinking their approach to work and employment, and the COVID-19 pandemic has only accelerated this trend. This article notes that one strategy some people are considering is the idea of retiring early — in fact, even as soon as their 30s or 40s. This goal, sometimes known as Financial Independence, Retire Early (FIRE), requires an extreme focus on saving and frugality. The article points out that even those whose goals don’t include early retirement may gain some useful tips from aspects of the FIRE strategy.
