FIRE is popular among millennials – and older adults too.
Inspired by the classic book, “Your Money or Your Life,” by Vicki Robin and Joe Dominguez, FIRE is an acronym – Financial Independence, Retire Early. Thousands or more diligent workers are striving to live with less to retire young. But, to what end?
I read the book when it first came out in 1992 and I like the living with less idea. It’s smart for the economy, the environment and a lot of other reasons. Living below your means, relieves money stress! In fact, I was raised with fiscally conservative parents and adopted that mindset.
