Hello there FIRE enthusiast!

Your FIRE journey starts here.

This is the page for somebody who is brand new to my blog and the concept of FIRE! Since this site is growing constantly, the content on the site may be hard to digest if you’re diving in fresh. This is why I’ve created this page to compile a list of content that’s organised in a way that is easier to read in order!

So if you’re new to FIRE but the concept of Financial Independence intrigues you, but don’t know where to start – don’t fret! Start with the posts below to familiarise yourself with all the concepts to help you begin your very own journey towards Financial Independence.

Feel free to jump to the posts that interest you most!

  1. What is FIRE and why should I care about Financial Independence?
  2. How much will I need to become financially independent?
  3. The number seems so high, will I ever get there? Let’s take a look at the bare minimum number and how long that would take.
  4. How should I invest?
  5. Hmm passive investing huh… why is this the better option? How does it work?

That’s all you’ll need to get started! There are more specific posts on different topics below if you’re looking at deep dives or just go back to the home page to browse the other posts!

More and more content should be added here as I continue to post more articles so stay tuned! 😁
