Today I discuss the top tips I have for those pursuing FI or FIRE.

  1. Think more about the income your portfolio or investments will produce, and this way you’re not as focused on such a high FI number, especially if you have rental properties, side hustle or other business interest.
  2. Anticipate earning income in retirement. If you are motivated enough to reach FI, then you’re probably not going to be able to do nothing for 50+ years of retirement.
  3. Don’t rely on the 4% rule, as this was built for 30-35 year retirement horizons.
  4. Change your life for the better now!
  5. If you’re close to FI, you have the flexibility to start something new and build a new life that you can enjoy more than your current one.
