Hi Melissa,

I can say as someone who is fully embraced The FIRE movement. It’s not about early retirement, it’s about Financial Independence. I never want to stop doing work, I want to one day be in a financial position where I can work on things I’m most passionate about even if it means taking a pay cut.

Most post FIRE people continue to work, but they work on what they want, when they want. Where they want and with who they want. They have saved enough to buy ultimate freedom.
