In his own words: “In the personal finance world, there are arguments on what categories are most important to cut. Many, including myself, like to focus on the big three: housing, transportation, and food. But frugality only gets you so far, you need to make more money.”
Cutting your expenses is a great way to get some quick wins when first starting your FIRE journey, but there are only so many expenses a persona is willing and able to cut. Thankfully, however, there is NOT a cap on how much money you can make. This is the part of the equation where you can and should focus most of your energy, and Steve makes a great case for it in this post.
