As the FIRE concept spreads into the mainstream press, many people are asking…Should you “RE”, or Retire Early? Or instead, is it about quitting a job that you don’t like, or just do for the money, and finding work that you love and that fulfills you?
“Yesterday was my last day”. Those were the words my Dad told his boss when he quit his job. He was 60 and decided he’d retire. Just like that.
Just like the stock market, wild ups and downs are part of our plan. If you have enough savings to draw from, then wild swings in your net worth and your annual expenses are normal. To prosper, you have to expect the unexpected.
