July 27th 2018.  That’s the last time I received a paycheck from my former 9-5, W-2 employer.  It’s been a full year. It’s been an interesting year as well and not because of anything to do with money.  Welcome to the true story of one year without income.

We had just moved to Miami from Chicago. Left behind many things including a couch I really didn’t like. Our needs included many things.  A couch was included and based off the previous couch we could expect our purchase to be with us for at least the next 10 years of our life.

The last couple of weeks have been eye opening for me.  I’ll save my big dramatic announcements for another day.  Today I want to talk about the FIRE movement.  That’s right it’s a whole movement, not just a couple spreadsheet nerds talking numbers and drinking craft beers.  The big excitement has moved to a documentary.  […] The post Playing with FIRE appeared first on Even Steven Money. ...
