Title: Financial Independence Retire Early (Strikethrough Early, and replaced with Exceptionally) - (Subtitle): Taking a Practical Approach to Achieve Financial Freedom on a Family Budget
The author is a successful entrepreneur who recently moved to Silicon Slopes near Salt Lake City, Utah. Happily married for 6 years, father of two young daughters, expecting a third child later this year. Fast tracked completing his B.S. in Business Management within 3 years, graduated college debt free, and entered his career field post graduation at 25 years old. Worked in the SaaS industry, took a quick break for 4 months in Healthcare, and currently back in SaaS working for one of the fastest growing companies in our space. The author has been involved with the FIRE movement for the last few years, including being a guest blogger and influencer. The author has also been featured in Muscle & Fitness magazine for his 75lb weight loss journey, invited as a guest speaker to fitness events, and continues to inspire those around him in a variety of ways.
40 Million households in America don't have a retirement savings...40 Million! Let that sink in for a moment. To combat this, the Financial Independence Retire Early movement continues to grow, however instead of focusing on retiring early, we will change our mindset; we will shift efforts towards RETIRING EXCEPTIONALLY! You might be asking yourself...what does that mean? Dive into the pages ahead to learn how we restructure the typical F.I.R.E mold that is not practical for the majority of single income households with families who are interested in an early retirement. Let's bridge the gap between the F.I.R.E. principles and applying them to our family's situation, knowing raising children doesn’t typically allow for a 50-75% savings rate with the average just over $60,000 per year. I’m looking to change the culture and mindset of this typical mold in the F.I.R.E. community and help more families achieve an exceptional retirement sooner rather than later. Join me for best practices, habits, and successes I've found effective as we break the mold and strive for our retirement goals together.
Example 1: Young adult, age 21-26, probably recently married with maybe 1-2 kids, who is looking to get out of any debt and start their journey to financial freedom. This individual also works a typical 9-5. They know how important saving money is but don't have structure or the knowledge for succeeding with basic financial principles. Gross income estimate: $40-60k/year Example 2: Age 26-31, has been in the career field for 5+ years now and wants to feel confident they’re taking full advantage of financial opportunities available to them. Also, this individual has not fully “bought in”, to the FIRE movement because the savings rate of a single person isn’t comparable to someone with a family and kids. This individual needs structure to set expectations with a clear path to FIRE, even with the extra expense and responsibility of children.
