Early Fin Freedom – The FIRE Movement

FIRE acronym stands for Financial Independence Retire Early. It has originated from the ideas written by Financial Gurus, Vicki Robin and Joe Dominguez’s, in their book, Your Money or Your Life (1992). The Movement became quite popular among Millennials (2010) through online forums and Blogs. FIRE Movement inspires a lifestyle whose goal is to retire at a much earlier age than at the traditional age of 65-67.

Through a dedicated program of extreme saving and investing, it is possible to set aside up to 50% and more of your income for retirement early financial goal. Savings goal to achieve approximately $1Million (about 30 times their yearly expenses), FIRE achievers may quit their day job

The Concepts of FIRE is misunderstood by friends, partners and family members who think that FIRE achievers want to retire early, so that they spend 40-45 years of their life not working- “lazy or unambitious”. Also, FIRE community acceptance has been controversial because their oversimplified frugal lifestyle and extreme sacrifices taken in order to achieve their goal of retirement early.

Financial Independence, Retire Early philosophies is not a full proof plan to be able to retire early and live solely off small withdrawals from their savings and investment portfolios (withdrawal 3%-4% yearly). The FIRE plan may fall short due to unexpected downturns in global economy, stock market and savings interest rates.

Fin Freedom
On a personal note, a dear friend, teacher and colleague explained how he and his family, at the end of each year, with his children, decided which charities to donate. He set aside a portion of his income each year to encourage the importance of awareness in the ‘world outside their box’. He explained further that his children were fortunate have collected already so many material things each holiday season and this was more meaningful way to end the year. He also took time from his office once a week to offer his services to the local hospital, as well as volunteered abroad during the summers through world organizations, such Doctors Without Borders.
