We are two corporate guys, living in the UK and looking to make a better life. Having recently discovered ‘FI’ (Financial Independence), we agreed that logically, it just made sense and could be hugely powerful in creating the wealth that would provide us with the freedom we crave for.
We spent a lot of time discussing all the different aspects of FI, the resources available and ultimately, how to better ourselves financially. We found that a lot of the material out there, including books and blogs, were very US centric. Much of our conversations were around how applicable they were to the UK and translating them into a domestic context that we could leverage. In fact, is FI even possible in the UK? That’s what we’re out to discover and as we progress, it makes sense to document and share the information, knowledge and perspectives we acquire in order to help other UK based ‘FI-ers’.
What’s the purpose?
The aim of this blog is to:
a) record our progress (and you can be nosey)
b) keep us accountable
c) document our successes and our mistakes, so you can learn from them and avoid the traps and pitfalls
And perhaps most importantly;
d) create one friendly and accessible place, where others can find a UK perspective on FI, whether you are ahead of the game or just discovering this powerful concept.
Who are we?
We have chosen to remain anonymous due to the nature of our work, the fact that we remain employed and our plan to disclose personal financial information. We have chosen the super catchy pseudonyms below.
We each have a different background, skill set and focus. This means we often have contrasting views which creates interesting discussion! Some things we agree on, some some we don’t. But everything is valid and up for debate.
