From Money Saved is Money Earned …
Neither of us had ever heard the term FIRE before becoming a part of the personal finance blogger community.
This is pretty ironic being as Sebastian IS financially independent and retired early and I’m well on my way to being able to do the same. Plus, we’re both pretty savvy with money and voracious consumers of knowledge. But there’s just one problem with the FIRE bloggers concept of early retirement.
One reason we think FIRE bloggers aren’t truly chasing FIRE is because they’re not really retired.
