“In the last few weeks, I was asked to participate in several interviews by other personal finance bloggers. Truth be told, they scare me a little (No not the bloggers!! The interviews!). Unlike many, I didn’t have a master FI plan to get me where I am today. I followed some simple money rules over the years, made some mistakes and eventually realized I could become FI early.
There is no year by year breakdown of my investments and expenses, or records of what my money goals were along the way. I have only been tracking everything closely in the last year, after I was already FI. But it’s possible, you can reach FI without a master plan!”
