Hey! What’s up?! My name is Chris. I’ve started this blog, like so many others, to document, inspire, and possibly educate others as they go throughout their journey to Financial Independence. It’s for myself, and for others… a 2fer.
I’m a late bloomer… probably in more ways than one, Doh!, to the FI (Financial Independance), or the FIRE (Financial Independence/Retire Early) movement. I really didn’t start to understand how to effectively manage my finances, and start to build a plan until I was in my 40s. Yeah Brah!! I’m OLD!
I’m a divorced single dad with teenaged kids. Hopefully, I can add some alternate perspectives to approaching financial independence, and retirement.
I continue to work as a systems engineer for a technology company as my day job, and bust my hump on a bunch of side hustles. I’m wicked-passionate about real estate, and truly believe this can accelerate one’s path to FI.
