In June 2019 I discovered the community and movement that is Financial Independence Retire Early (FIRE). A community that changed my traditional views on retirement, and made me realise I didn’t have to work until I was 65+ years old.

I soon introduced my husband to the idea and we started our journey then and there, improved our financial literacy, increased our savings rate to 60%, and learnt how to invest (including in ourselves).

Since then we invested our first 100k in 17 months, and as of February 2022 we have built our portfolio outside super to over 400k. We are now working towards semi retirement in 2023.

This is our journey to Financial Independence and Retirement on Our Terms.
