About this guide

Whilst the principle of FI/RE (Financial Independence/Retire Early) is simple enough, there is a vast amount of information out there and endless debate from those in the community. That’s great, but it can be overwhelming when starting out, sifting through what’s useful and what isn’t.

When we started learning about FI/RE, we spent days and weeks researching everything out there. What we really wanted to know was – what are the basics we need to know right now to get started?

And that’s what this guide is. The basics. The underlying principles that underpin what is takes to become Financially Independent.

This is your journey (disclaimer)

We give you all the information you need in one place. But remember, this is your journey and your life, so take control. Use these guides as templates and feel free to customise this to your own needs and adjust them as you see fit.

Do not, however, take them as financial advice. When making long term financial decisions it’s always wise to seek professional help. A good financial advisor will review your individual goals and confirm if the plan you have in place suits your needs. Always do your own research and take advice.
