Hi,

I hope it's OK that I post even though I'm no longer a wannabee. I think that this board is a great idea and wished it had been around years ago!

I thought I would check-in and give you a peek at the tools I used to FIRE.


When I had more than two years until FIRE

- Estimate FIRE date
- Proposed FIRE Budget and funding strategy
- Approach for health insurance
- Where to live
- Plan for Post FIRE paid work/volunteer/leisure activities

Less than two years to FIRE
All of the above plus
- A plan to deal with the emotional aspects of FIRE (i.e. quitting, filling your days in a meaningful way)
