Mastering the FIRE Method: The Ultimate Guide to Early Retirement & Financial Independence

at some point of time you would have thought of retiring early or maybe you're thinking of it now and truth be told retirement is not about abandoning work there are very few who would say I won't work any further but what we yearn for is the freedom to operate to live life in the way we want and that brings us to the five moment now fire stands for financial Independence retirement it's a very catchy acronym and to put it in a nutshell it's a program that's designed around saving aggressively investing in high return instruments like equities and disciplined withdrawals which put together ensures you have enough money to cover your living expenses for the rest of your life and therefore retire early in this video I shall be explaining the concept in Greater details we look at the implementation steps some calculations and why fire needs to be a deliberate part of your financial life this might be a short video but it's a very powerful concept so let's begin the concept of fire was popularized in a book titled your money or your life it was built around self-sufficiency control over one's time moderate consumption and of course living life outside the nine to five for instance this guy Pete atney who is better known as Mr Money Mustache applied the fire principles which allowed him to retire from his job as a software engineer at the age of 30.

He's 48 now and he continues to live comfortably of his Investments after so many years and it's not just Pete there are writers bloggers people traveling the world software developers and even YouTubers who are using these principles to lead a more open life and have attached some articles and videos in the description to that effect some of these stories are really inspirational and it proves the fact that a little bit of planning on the financial side can have a profound impact on other aspects of one's life and in a very positive way now there are three parts one needs to address when implementing a fire strategy the first step is savings and the hardcore fire disciple is expected to save anywhere from 50 to 70 percent of one's monthly income this is of course easier said than done and probably where a lot of people make up their mind that this is not their cup of tea but from what I have read and what I've experienced the saving need not be always defined as a percentage and we can also work with absolute numbers which we'll see when I come to the calculations part now when we hear the word saving our first reaction or response is on reducing our expenses however money can also be saved by upping one's income which is what I suggest and it does make sense right I mean there is a limit to what one can save but income generation has a much longer Runway and in our case it can include taking a part-time job doing some consultancy work asking for a pay hike changing jobs for a better salary reskilling oneself or of course starting a side hustle which can be a mix of active and passive work in fact I have a friend in Bangalore who works as a data scientist from Monday to Friday and then on the weekends he takes classes on an edtech platform and also does some consultancy work to put it in numbers what was earlier a monthly saving of 50 000 Rupees is now easily over 2 lakhs a month and this guy has absolutely changed his life around by leveraging what he knows so he's on fire metaphorically speaking and the the fire strategy encourages us to find creative and better ways of increasing our savings rate the Second Step under the fire strategy is to spend wisely notice I didn't say don't spend I said spend wisely which means you need to identify what is an essential expense and what can be tagged as discretionary now people who practice Fire have a ton of helpful advice for us these include driving a good used car instead of a new one renting versus buying a house cooking at home rather than eating out track your daily expenses cancel unnecessary subscriptions Etc from what I've read these small steps can reduce your monthly expenses by up to 30 percent which if you choose to look at it differently is like getting a 30 incremented salary so you don't have to be stinky when it comes to your expenses but try to be a bit more rational about it and the third and final pillar in the fire system is the investment part now on a basic level the system requires advisors to invest as much money as you can and as early as possible so it's the principle of compounding at work here and this table here is a handy guide to how well your Corpus expands when you give it the necessary capital and a decent amount of time to grow now the fire method keeps this investing part ridiculously simple one you invest some money every month or as we call it you set up an sip a systematic investment plan and secondly this money is invested in a low cost Index Fund or ETF which in our case is either the nifty 50 or maybe a slightly broader Nifty 500 Index so essentially the focus here is to participate in the equity markets rather than actively trying to beat it which by my Reckoning should Fetchers and analyze return of 12 to 13 percent again the idea here is to maximize the returns which is why equities have been suggested but if that makes you a little uncomfortable then you can also settle for a mix of different asset classes which is something I explained in my video on asset allocation a few weeks back yet another investment you can make which is encouraged under the fire movement is on account of passive income dividends from stocks interest from your fixed deposits income from your blog your podcast YouTube channel monetization rental income are just some ways of making an Roi from physical or virtual assets now notice I have put this part under Investments and not income because passive income does require a lot of upfront work but once you do the hard work and you do it well one can expect a continuous stream of income over the next few years which will not only support your early retirement Ambitions but will also act as a safety net in fact there is something called an fi Ratio or the financial Independence ratio which largely means if your passive income is greater than your expenses then you're making some great progress on the path to financial Independence so to sum it up remember fire has three simple principles that you need to work on which is save more spend less and invest wisely if you're getting good value from this video then please do give this video a thumbs up and if you aren't a subscriber yet then do consider becoming one as I can then serve you videos as soon as they are released and also share with you some investing strategies tips and stories that are continually Post in the community section the original fire formula is based on the four percent rule which is the amount of saving you can safely withdraw every year without worrying that your money will run out for example let's say you are 29 years old and your monthly expenses are around 50 000 rupees if you want to retire at 40 then you have 11 years to accumulate a retirement fund so here's the math if household inflation is likely to grow by eight percent per annum then the 50 000 you spend now will rise to 1 lakh 16 000 rupees by the time you're 40.

So annually this comes to 14 lakh rupees and per the four percent rule it's 14 multiplied by 25 which means you need to accumulate a couples of three and a half crores to safely navigate through your retirement years or at least that's what the fire formula says now in my view there are some gaps with this four percent rule that I think we should all be aware of firstly this rule is okay for someone who has factored 25 maybe 30 years of retirement but if the retirement Horizon goes higher let's say 50 years for example then this formula starts getting a bit shaky and I've pinned a research study by Vanguard on this in the video's description secondly the four percent rule is a United States origination of the 1990s and has been tested on a historical basis when the yields on equities and Bonds were sufficiently high now we are not Americans and what works there will most likely not work for us which means there's an asset allocation and a market performance risk which needs to be accounted for and finally because each of us have our own preferences income goals saving patterns Etc I always felt it's important to have a customized fire implementation plan rather than picking something off the shelf which is why I created my own fire calculator which gives a clearer picture of how much I need to accumulate when can I idly retire how much withdrawals can I do on a monthly basis and at what point and in what circumstances my retirement money can run out so this obviously starts with the inputs and you need to type in your current age the age at which you want to retire and of course your life expectancy which I hope is strong and long then comes your current portfolio of Investments and this includes your mutual funds fds ppf EPF gold and other stuff and as a best practice kindly exclude the cost of the house where you will be staying post your retirement if you're still working then input the monthly savings and the annual increase you foresee input the expected returns from your investment the capital gain tax that can remain at 10 percent and finally have a view on how much will your expenses be in the first year of retirement and the expected household inflation rate and once we have these numbers keyed in as I have shown in this example the resulting output should clearly tell us three things one the amount of investment Corpus we need at the time of retirement which in this illustration is 2.2 crores at the age of 40.

Secondly we now have Clarity on how much can be spent on an early basis which starts from 12 lakhs so that's one lakh per month and it increases by eight percent every year and thirdly we get to know how sound or unsound this entire construct is like in this case our calculation shows that I'll run out of my money by the time I am 64 years old which is another way of saying that I need to rework my fire math which can include an increase in the monthly savings and the growth rate I can also consider extending my retirement age to a higher number let's say 45 years and finally I I can be a little careful with my expenses and instead of spending a lack of rupees maybe I can make do with 90 000. so there are many permutations and combinations you can look at but my suggestion is try to be a little conservative in your estimates especially when it comes to return on investment the inflation rate and the post retirement monthly expenses now for your benefit I have enclosed the link of this worksheet in the video's description it's a downloadable sheet all the formulas are open so feel free to change the numbers improve the formula if required add your own customization if it helps you but have a clear idea on when and where you need to be on the path to financial Independence so when I first heard and read about fire I was not a big fan of it I mean saving 50 to 7 20 percent of one salary is almost next to Impossible and I would have shut sharp had I not realized that as a method fire is quite flexible and can be used in many different ways so the calculator is one way and you can make a customized version of it but then there are more strategies there are more variants of the fire strategy and if you are interested then do read up on lean fire fat fire Coast fire and a few more of these in related articles that I've Linked In the video's description the point is and I myself realized a very late in life that many of us don't know when to retire how much is needed to retire which is why we continue working in a role or occupation that we don't enjoy much and that's where I think fire as a strategy might be the solution and it's just three things right increase your income and savings lower your expenses and get your Investments right so read up more about this concept in the Articles and websites I've added in the description and I sincerely hope you practice some sort of fire going forward if you found this video useful then do press the like button do subscribe to my channel share this video and I'll see you three days from now until then foreign

more than 10 crores and has managed to retire completely before
the age of 40. We will learn how to start planning, how to
do the calculations for early retirement and what all things to keep in mind before
leaving your job. So watch this video till the end and to support
our channel, like the video right now. FIX YOUR FINANCE Hello and welcome to a new episode of Fix
Your Finance. Today I have Ravi Handa with me. Welcome to the show Ravi. Glad to be here. How's early retirement treating you? It has its good parts obviously. What are the good parts? You can spend time on things which you were
not able to do earlier. And what are some of the bad parts of retiring
early? You lose a lot of value and a lot of validation
that you used to get from a job.

You have described your retired life in 2023. Let's take it back to like 15-16 years back. So, what did you study? I have done engineering in computer science. And what was your first job? Where did you start working? I started working in the education sector
itself. I joined IMS Calcutta which is a CAT coaching
company. Okay. And what was your first paycheck? 25,000 odd rupees. When you retired in 2022, what were you doing
back then? Actually, before that, I used to run a business
from 2012 to 2021. Which was in the education sector. My company was acquired by Unacademy. So, the last 1-1.5 years of my working career, I was with Unacademy as director content sales. So, how many years did you work? I worked from 2006 to 2010. Then I took a year break. 2011 is when I got married. 2011 is when I joined this IT company called
Mindtical. What was the trigger to start your own thing? When I was working for IMS, at that point of time itself, I started making educational videos on YouTube
around 2008.

Gradually, they became popular. Not very popular. And this was CAT coaching for MBA? CAT coaching. First, I started with math. Then I went to GK through math. Then to LRDI, then to English. I kept on expanding. And how was the business? How did it work? Business was profitable from day one. Because there was no expense. Yes. In today's date, the cost of videos or ads
in EdTech has gone astronomically.

In 2012, it was extremely simple. Because I don't think anyone was doing it. Or even if anyone was doing it, they were not such a big player that you cannot
really compete. On an average, what was the kind of profits
or salary that you guys were drawing? We had good years when we did revenues of
3 crores as well. We had bad years when we did revenues of 25
lakhs as well. There was massive fluctuation. In 2021, your company got acquired. Correct. It got acquired and then there was that vesting
period wherein you had to work. Correct. And after that, you got an exit. Correct. So, were you actively looking for an exit? Yes. Again, I am telling you the same. So, during the COVID period of 2020, my wife was pregnant at that point of time, So, my wife and I used to sit and chat about
what to do with life. And this is what emerged that we have to sell the business at whatever valuation possible, whatever sort
of deal you get. Because getting out of business is the priority. After selling the company, there will be a
vesting period wherein you were working with Unacademy.

Correct. What was your compensation then? Exact numbers I can't reveal because of the
NDA. But my salary was a little above 1 cr. And the ESOPs of the vesting, that was another additional 50 lakhs or a
little more than that. Wow! So, you have a lot of money in Edtech, I am
guessing. Yes. But I didn't get this for my skill or my talent. Okay. This I got primarily because they were acquiring
my company and this is a way for them to pay out the
money slowly rather than on day one. What is your background? Which college did you study in? IIT Kharagpur. Did that also help in your, you know, starting your entrepreneurial journey? Absolutely. I am telling you, there are a few things which have helped me a lot in life. To take risks, to experiment. One, my parents were always independent. I have never had to give a single rupee to
my parents. The second thing which has really helped me
is my wife was very well educated and in a very good
job which allowed me to take a lot of risks.

The third is that I went to a good college and through that college, you build a network. I have friends in senior positions in multiple
places. This is it. You are the sum of your privilege, your background and the people that you have interacted with over your life. Okay, so now we will talk about your expenses. Do you live in a rented apartment or is it
an owned? It's an owned flat. I shifted to Jaipur in 2015 to be closer to
my parents and at that point of time, I purchased the
flat that I still live in today.

Did you take it on loan or did you pay in
cash? No, it was entirely in cash because at that
point of time, I had been doing business for 2-3 years. The second thing is your travel. So, do you have a car or do you travel in
cabs? I have a car but I don't really like to drive
that much. So, how much fuel do you spend on a monthly
basis? I have no idea. So, you don't track expenses in general? That way, no. So, The way I track expenses is at the beginning
of the financial year, I check how much money was in the bank account. Throughout the year, I just find out how much
money went out of your bank account. So, that's how I determine how much I spent
this year. So, on an annual basis, how much did you spend
in the last 3 years? Around 2 lakh rupees goes into maintenance. Society, maintenance plus the other property
that I own.

5-7 lakh rupees is the vacation. Another 2-3 lakhs would be eating out, drinking,
parties. Parties, not the pub parties. Parents' 50th anniversary, the first birthday
of the child. So, all these parties add up. 3 lakhs or a little more than that would go
towards the house help staff. These are the big hits. Now, it is time for the main thing, which is talking about your financial independence
and retirement plans. The first and main thing is figuring out your
FIRE number. How much money would I need to not work and can retire comfortably. So, in which year did you seriously start
thinking about FIRE? Which year? Covid, 2020. 2020 is when I actually sat down and did the
numbers.

Where I have this much money, I will put this
money here and there. So, it took me around 3 months, maybe 6 months to figure out how much money I exactly need,
how do I need to invest it. And then it took me a couple of years, 3 years
to execute that. So, if your annual expense is 25 lakhs, if you take a multiple of 30, it is 7.5 cr. Right? So, what are some of the milestones that you
took into account? There are two major chunks that I have kept.

One of them is nearly everyone likes and accepts
that you have to save money for your child's higher
education. So, I have earmarked 50 lakh rupees for that. Wow! I will give it to him at 18 or whatever appropriate
age. 7.5 Cr plus 50L. For this? Yes. 8 cr. Another 50L is what I wanted to keep as a
sort of play money for experiments that I would want to do. Angel investing is one of them. Crypto investments is one of them. I am doing a podcast right now, so it has
its own expenses. Yeah. You should check out his YouTube channel,
okay? Every month, two videos come up specifically
talking about how to achieve FIRE. Okay? There is a link in the description.

Definitely subscribe. That is 50 lakhs, your play money. How is that going by the way? Angel investments and other investments? I have lost a lot of money in angel investments. I have lost a little bit of money in crypto
as well. But the biggest problem in angel investments
is that it is extremely illiquid. There is no honesty. So, I had put 3 lakh rupees in a company in
2019. In 2021, it became 45 lakh rupees. Ravi Handa is happy that it is done. Did you get an exit? Exit? The company closed in 2023. It became zero. Oh shit. So, that is the problem with angel investment. That's why you have allocated an amount which you yourself have called play money. Correct. Any other milestones that you have covered? No, these two. 8.5 cr was your FIRE number. You said that you started investing a huge
amount since 2015. You started investing or saving more.

From 2006 to 2015, did you manage to save any portion of your
salary? Yes, we were always saving more than 50-60%. We used to save this much. So, it was business, revenue was high, that's
why you didn't save. It was something which was there. Your expenses were always lower than what
you were earning. So, have you accumulated the 8.5 cr ? A little bit more than that. Very nice. How much percentage of that, if you are comfortable
sharing, how much percentage has come from selling
your company and how much percentage of the proportion
has come from your savings? I would say that selling the company probably
gave me 20-25%. Which basically means that this was not a
result of a certain event. No, no. So, this was because my business was successful. The second factor was that my expenses were
very low. The third factor was that I always had substantial
investment in equity. The fourth factor is where I would say the
selling of the company comes in. The main money that was made was made by business. And let's say if you were doing your software
job, you would have been in the top positions, In that case, do you think this much wealth
accumulation would have been possible? If I was in India, then no.

If I had gone abroad, then I would have been
way ahead of this. Is that one of those things that you would,
you know, you look back and want to change? I regret it every week. If I had been a good student, if I had studied
in college, then I wouldn't have been in the coaching
line. I would have moved to the US or Canada or
Europe or somewhere after college. I can't believe that you are saying that you are not content with what you have achieved
financially. I am absolutely content with what I have achieved.

Because I have bounced back from the mistakes
of not studying in college. Yeah. The 8.5 cr that you have accumulated, that too, what are the percentages where you
have invested? My current net worth would be somewhere between
12-13 cr. Out of this, 1-1.5 crore rupees, which is
my 4-5 years of expenses, I keep it in absolutely liquid low risk investments. So, this is my cash bucket. In the medium term bucket, I have taken a
balance advantage fund. I have long term bonds, gilt funds, which is another 4-5 years of expenses. So, a mix of equity and debt. Third bucket, which is my long term bucket, another, I believe, 6-7 crores would be in
that and then there is a piece of land that I own
which is around 2 cr. Tell me one thing, how to go about it? Primarily if you are young you need to save,
develop as a habit sort of a thing but your focus should be on making money.

Where will you earn money from? Either you will grow in a job or you will
join risky jobs like startups to get ESOPs or you leave the country, you go abroad you
earn a lot more there, you save a lot more there and you come
back and you know you can be in a very good situation or what you do is you get a higher
degree. Suppose you have done engineering, MBA, Masters
in Engineering, there are plenty of avenues. Your main focus should be on making more and
more and more money. Because after one point your expenses can't
get less. So if you want to increase the alpha, the
difference in income and expenses that will only happen if you are constantly focusing on increasing
the top line. Let's say I have decided that I want to retire
early. What was the framework? What were some of the thought processes? One according to me even hoping for planning
for early retirement is sort of accepting a failure that you couldn't make your career
in your life better that's why you are going towards retirement.

Yes financial independence is important, early
retirement is not. If you are in a job that you like, that you
enjoy or I will say if you are in a job or in a career that you don't hate, do not think
about early retirement. Early retirement became important for me because
I wasn't liking what I was doing. So this is our quick finance round. You have to answer the questions as soon as
possible. If you had an unlimited budget, what would
you gift your wife? Vacation, luxury vacation. If money was out of consideration which in
your case holds true, what would you do for a living? I don't know I will keep experimenting with
it which is what I am doing right now.

And the last question is for people who want
to achieve financial independence and you know are seeking early retirement, what are
2-3 nuggets of advice that you would share with them? For financial independence, increasing your
income as much as possible that should be your priority. The second priority should be that bulk of
your savings should go into equity. If you are chasing early retirement, I think
that is a bad chase to have. That should be, that is like surgery, that
should be the last option. Try changing your job, try changing the city
you work in, try changing the country you work in, try changing your careers. If there is no avenue, that is when you think
about early retirement. Alright, that brings us to the end of the
episode. Thank you so much for sharing your journey. I am sure that a lot of people have learnt
a lot from today's episode and video.

So annually this comes to 14 lakh rupees and per the four percent rule it's 14 multiplied by 25 which means you need to accumulate a couples of three and a half crores to safely navigate through your retirement years or at least that's what the fire formula says now in my view there are some gaps with this four percent rule that I think we should all be aware of firstly this rule is okay for someone who has factored 25 maybe 30 years of retirement but if the retirement Horizon goes higher let's say 50 years for example then this formula starts getting a bit shaky and I've pinned a research study by Vanguard on this in the video's description secondly the four percent rule is a United States origination of the 1990s and has been tested on a historical basis when the yields on equities and Bonds were sufficiently high now we are not Americans and what works there will most likely not work for us which means there's an asset allocation and a market performance risk which needs to be accounted for and finally because each of us have our own preferences income goals saving patterns Etc I always felt it's important to have a customized fire implementation plan rather than picking something off the shelf which is why I created my own fire calculator which gives a clearer picture of how much I need to accumulate when can I idly retire how much withdrawals can I do on a monthly basis and at what point and in what circumstances my retirement money can run out so this obviously starts with the inputs and you need to type in your current age the age at which you want to retire and of course your life expectancy which I hope is strong and long then comes your current portfolio of Investments and this includes your mutual funds fds ppf EPF gold and other stuff and as a best practice kindly exclude the cost of the house where you will be staying post your retirement if you're still working then input the monthly savings and the annual increase you foresee input the expected returns from your investment the capital gain tax that can remain at 10 percent and finally have a view on how much will your expenses be in the first year of retirement and the expected household inflation rate and once we have these numbers keyed in as I have shown in this example the resulting output should clearly tell us three things one the amount of investment Corpus we need at the time of retirement which in this illustration is 2.2 crores at the age of 40.

Secondly we now have Clarity on how much can be spent on an early basis which starts from 12 lakhs so that's one lakh per month and it increases by eight percent every year and thirdly we get to know how sound or unsound this entire construct is like in this case our calculation shows that I'll run out of my money by the time I am 64 years old which is another way of saying that I need to rework my fire math which can include an increase in the monthly savings and the growth rate I can also consider extending my retirement age to a higher number let's say 45 years and finally I I can be a little careful with my expenses and instead of spending a lack of rupees maybe I can make do with 90 000.

So there are many permutations and combinations you can look at but my suggestion is try to be a little conservative in your estimates especially when it comes to return on investment the inflation rate and the post retirement monthly expenses now for your benefit I have enclosed the link of this worksheet in the video's description it's a downloadable sheet all the formulas are open so feel free to change the numbers improve the formula if required add your own customization if it helps you but have a clear idea on when and where you need to be on the path to financial Independence so when I first heard and read about fire I was not a big fan of it I mean saving 50 to 7 20 percent of one salary is almost next to Impossible and I would have shut sharp had I not realized that as a method fire is quite flexible and can be used in many different ways so the calculator is one way and you can make a customized version of it but then there are more strategies there are more variants of the fire strategy and if you are interested then do read up on lean fire fat fire Coast fire and a few more of these in related articles that I've Linked In the video's description the point is and I myself realized a very late in life that many of us don't know when to retire how much is needed to retire which is why we continue working in a role or occupation that we don't enjoy much and that's where I think fire as a strategy might be the solution and it's just three things right increase your income and savings lower your expenses and get your Investments right so read up more about this concept in the Articles and websites I've added in the description and I sincerely hope you practice some sort of fire going forward if you found this video useful then do press the like button do subscribe to my channel share this video and I'll see you three days from now until then foreign

Mastering the FIRE Method: The Ultimate Guide to Early Retirement & Financial Independence

at some point of time you would have thought of retiring early or maybe you're thinking of it now and truth be told retirement is not about abandoning work there are very few who would say I won't work any further but what we yearn for is the freedom to operate to live life in the way we want and that brings us to the five moment now fire stands for financial Independence retirement it's a very catchy acronym and to put it in a nutshell it's a program that's designed around saving aggressively investing in high return instruments like equities and disciplined withdrawals which put together ensures you have enough money to cover your living expenses for the rest of your life and therefore retire early in this video I shall be explaining the concept in Greater details we look at the implementation steps some calculations and why fire needs to be a deliberate part of your financial life this might be a short video but it's a very powerful concept so let's begin the concept of fire was popularized in a book titled your money or your life it was built around self-sufficiency control over one's time moderate consumption and of course living life outside the nine to five for instance this guy Pete atney who is better known as Mr Money Mustache applied the fire principles which allowed him to retire from his job as a software engineer at the age of 30.

He's 48 now and he continues to live comfortably of his Investments after so many years and it's not just Pete there are writers bloggers people traveling the world software developers and even YouTubers who are using these principles to lead a more open life and have attached some articles and videos in the description to that effect some of these stories are really inspirational and it proves the fact that a little bit of planning on the financial side can have a profound impact on other aspects of one's life and in a very positive way now there are three parts one needs to address when implementing a fire strategy the first step is savings and the hardcore fire disciple is expected to save anywhere from 50 to 70 percent of one's monthly income this is of course easier said than done and probably where a lot of people make up their mind that this is not their cup of tea but from what I have read and what I've experienced the saving need not be always defined as a percentage and we can also work with absolute numbers which we'll see when I come to the calculations part now when we hear the word saving our first reaction or response is on reducing our expenses however money can also be saved by upping one's income which is what I suggest and it does make sense right I mean there is a limit to what one can save but income generation has a much longer Runway and in our case it can include taking a part-time job doing some consultancy work asking for a pay hike changing jobs for a better salary reskilling oneself or of course starting a side hustle which can be a mix of active and passive work in fact I have a friend in Bangalore who works as a data scientist from Monday to Friday and then on the weekends he takes classes on an edtech platform and also does some consultancy work to put it in numbers what was earlier a monthly saving of 50 000 Rupees is now easily over 2 lakhs a month and this guy has absolutely changed his life around by leveraging what he knows so he's on fire metaphorically speaking and the the fire strategy encourages us to find creative and better ways of increasing our savings rate the Second Step under the fire strategy is to spend wisely notice I didn't say don't spend I said spend wisely which means you need to identify what is an essential expense and what can be tagged as discretionary now people who practice Fire have a ton of helpful advice for us these include driving a good used car instead of a new one renting versus buying a house cooking at home rather than eating out track your daily expenses cancel unnecessary subscriptions Etc from what I've read these small steps can reduce your monthly expenses by up to 30 percent which if you choose to look at it differently is like getting a 30 incremented salary so you don't have to be stinky when it comes to your expenses but try to be a bit more rational about it and the third and final pillar in the fire system is the investment part now on a basic level the system requires advisors to invest as much money as you can and as early as possible so it's the principle of compounding at work here and this table here is a handy guide to how well your Corpus expands when you give it the necessary capital and a decent amount of time to grow now the fire method keeps this investing part ridiculously simple one you invest some money every month or as we call it you set up an sip a systematic investment plan and secondly this money is invested in a low cost Index Fund or ETF which in our case is either the nifty 50 or maybe a slightly broader Nifty 500 Index so essentially the focus here is to participate in the equity markets rather than actively trying to beat it which by my Reckoning should Fetchers and analyze return of 12 to 13 percent again the idea here is to maximize the returns which is why equities have been suggested but if that makes you a little uncomfortable then you can also settle for a mix of different asset classes which is something I explained in my video on asset allocation a few weeks back yet another investment you can make which is encouraged under the fire movement is on account of passive income dividends from stocks interest from your fixed deposits income from your blog your podcast YouTube channel monetization rental income are just some ways of making an Roi from physical or virtual assets now notice I have put this part under Investments and not income because passive income does require a lot of upfront work but once you do the hard work and you do it well one can expect a continuous stream of income over the next few years which will not only support your early retirement Ambitions but will also act as a safety net in fact there is something called an fi Ratio or the financial Independence ratio which largely means if your passive income is greater than your expenses then you're making some great progress on the path to financial Independence so to sum it up remember fire has three simple principles that you need to work on which is save more spend less and invest wisely if you're getting good value from this video then please do give this video a thumbs up and if you aren't a subscriber yet then do consider becoming one as I can then serve you videos as soon as they are released and also share with you some investing strategies tips and stories that are continually Post in the community section the original fire formula is based on the four percent rule which is the amount of saving you can safely withdraw every year without worrying that your money will run out for example let's say you are 29 years old and your monthly expenses are around 50 000 rupees if you want to retire at 40 then you have 11 years to accumulate a retirement fund so here's the math if household inflation is likely to grow by eight percent per annum then the 50 000 you spend now will rise to 1 lakh 16 000 rupees by the time you're 40.

So annually this comes to 14 lakh rupees and per the four percent rule it's 14 multiplied by 25 which means you need to accumulate a couples of three and a half crores to safely navigate through your retirement years or at least that's what the fire formula says now in my view there are some gaps with this four percent rule that I think we should all be aware of firstly this rule is okay for someone who has factored 25 maybe 30 years of retirement but if the retirement Horizon goes higher let's say 50 years for example then this formula starts getting a bit shaky and I've pinned a research study by Vanguard on this in the video's description secondly the four percent rule is a United States origination of the 1990s and has been tested on a historical basis when the yields on equities and Bonds were sufficiently high now we are not Americans and what works there will most likely not work for us which means there's an asset allocation and a market performance risk which needs to be accounted for and finally because each of us have our own preferences income goals saving patterns Etc I always felt it's important to have a customized fire implementation plan rather than picking something off the shelf which is why I created my own fire calculator which gives a clearer picture of how much I need to accumulate when can I idly retire how much withdrawals can I do on a monthly basis and at what point and in what circumstances my retirement money can run out so this obviously starts with the inputs and you need to type in your current age the age at which you want to retire and of course your life expectancy which I hope is strong and long then comes your current portfolio of Investments and this includes your mutual funds fds ppf EPF gold and other stuff and as a best practice kindly exclude the cost of the house where you will be staying post your retirement if you're still working then input the monthly savings and the annual increase you foresee input the expected returns from your investment the capital gain tax that can remain at 10 percent and finally have a view on how much will your expenses be in the first year of retirement and the expected household inflation rate and once we have these numbers keyed in as I have shown in this example the resulting output should clearly tell us three things one the amount of investment Corpus we need at the time of retirement which in this illustration is 2.2 crores at the age of 40.

5 Easy Tips To đź’°Save Moneyđź’°…Money Saving Hacks

I’m going to do a video on 5 simple things you can do to help your financial situation and I realized that I need to do a follow-up to the retired at 40 story video because there’s a huge need for financial education in this country and really everywhere it pertains to every single person doesn’t matter what your financial status is you can always use help and there’s always little tip tips and tricks that and things that you can do to better your status it always amazes me how scared people are to talk about their finances to put something on paper to basically take a look at where their money is going what’s getting saved and how everything is getting spent and I’ve met people time and time again that are highly educated very smart people but they know nothing about finances and they are terrible with money management so before we get into the 5 tips I want to strongly urge you to make a financial statement for yourself figure out where your money is going currently and figure out how much you’re saving and basically figure out where you can trim the fat for so many people a financial statement or just finances in general is like a bad word they’re just terrified of it but the only way that you’re gonna be able to improve your finances is to face the music alright so now that you’ve had a chance to go through your financial statement you definitely know where your money is going but how can we save more and what you really need to aim for is about 6 months of reserves especially if you’re getting ready to invest money into something or if you’re doing some kind of career change or some life-changing thing and all of these five tips will more than likely be a line-item on your financial statement so let’s go to financial tip number one hey I’m going to have to call you back I’m shooting a video right now so this first thing is something that we’ve all become very very accustomed to in the last 10 to 15 years and that is a cell phone and people tend to spend absurd amounts on their cell phones whether it’s the bill or the cell phone itself mainly the cell phone itself so that’s my first financial tip is shop on eBay or Amazon for a cell phone that’s refurbished or used or one this may be just a couple years old I actually just purchased a cell phone on ebay because I’m having trouble with my current one and I got on to my cell phone providers website and the most expensive phone that’s like mine now is $1,200 that’s insane to me so I got on eBay I found one that’s similar to the one I have right now it’s new but it’s a couple years old and I got it for less than $200 another thing that you can do is ask for some kind of loyalty benefit from your cell phone provider cell phone providers are constantly trying to earn your business and if you’ve been with them for a long time and you can convince them to keep you around by offering you some kind of benefit they’ll jump on the chance just by going into my provider recently I have a cell phone bill that was about a hundred and ten dollars a month I told them that I’ve been with them for close to 15 years they knocked it down to sixty-seven dollars and I have unlimited everything now tip number two is what I call going to youtube University or getting a YouTube education we live in the most amazing time ever right now there is information everywhere and it’s so easily accessible don’t ever stop educating yourself it’s so easy to find out how to do things these days you’re doing yourself a huge disservice if you don’t take advantage of that so how does that pertain to saving money well you can save money by doing tons and tons of things yourself instead of paying someone else to do it just look at the platform that you’re watching right now for instance you’re watching a video on how to do something so that how-to can be anything from changing brake pads on your car to changing the oil on your car to fixing a leaky faucet or the toilet flapper not working on your toilet all the way to how to the meal which brings me to my next point number three so food is a necessity in life but is it a necessity to go out to eat or go to Starbucks once or twice or every day the amount of money that people spend on food and going out to eat fast food Starbucks McDonald’s it really adds up quick and I don’t think that people realize how much money they’re actually spending on it because it’s just five or six or seven dollars here and there but if you add that up over the course of a month or a year or five years or ten years I think the result would be pretty staggering cook your meals at home pack your lunch for work make that fancy coffee at home it’s not that tough to do there’s so many great ideas and resources on YouTube and Pinterest and vlogs and blogs this channel included if you need a place to start scroll through my channel I have lots of cooking videos if you want to take that a step farther you can start growing your own food and if you don’t have a big green house like this you can grow a lot of food just in five gallon buckets even on a little deck if you don’t know where to get started see tip two number four is something that really hits home for me because me and my wife are both self-employed and we have been for 15 plus years so number four is insurance and although I don’t like insurance companies because I think they’re a giant scam it’s a necessary evil and you can also use that to your advantage you can put them against each other insurance companies much like cell phone companies are begging for your business and they’re constantly trying to outdo each other with with certain benefits or promotions so make them put their money where their mouth is and put them up against each other constantly and not just insurance companies you can do this with all kinds of different companies you should always be price checking these companies the ball is in your court make them earn your business all right I’d saved the best for last tip number five is taking advantage of bank account and credit card bonuses and this tip is begging for a separate video all on its own because I could go on about this for a long time but if you’re not taking advantage of credit card bonuses for sign ups or credit card cash back or travel miles or if you sign up for a bank account a lot of them will give you a large sum just for putting your money with them now I want to be clear I’m not promoting just going out and spending a bunch of money on a credit card but more putting the things that you already spend money on into the credit card it’s money that you’re spending anyways put your mortgage on a credit card if you can insurance is a good one it’s not super expensive but at least we’ll get you a couple hundred bucks on your credit card unless of course it’s health insurance and then you’re talking in my case thousand to twelve hundred dollars a month here’s another good one groceries it’s something that you always have to have and depending on how much you go to the grocery store it could add up to three or four hundred bucks a month sometimes six hundred maybe even more no-brainer here put your gas on a credit card you can always put your utilities on your credit card too if your utility company will allow it next from tip one your cell phone bill now depending on how much some of these are and if you are allowed to actually put them on your credit card you’re talking some pretty major money that you can get a bonus from if you’re getting two percent cashback that really adds up not only that but you’re increasing your credit score while you’re doing that so as long as you’re financially responsible and you pay this every month you’re reaping a large benefit a lot of credit cards will give you a 2% cashback they’ll give you a $500 signup bonus that’s free money in my opinion the free bank bonuses or even better than the credit card in my opinion because the bank account is something that you have to have anyway a lot of them will give you $500 for a small deposit as long as you put your direct deposit with them all the way up to I’ve seen $1,000 before and if you have a little bit more money to play with some of the online money market accounts like Capital One will pay you up to 2% or some even up to 2.5% just for keeping your money with them so some of these things may not seem like it’s saving you a ton of money but when you take up those extra fives and tens and occasional hundreds and you put them to work for you as opposed to something that you’re normally spending you’re not only saving the money because you’re not spending it but you’re putting it to work and doing something else with it and you’ll find that your your finances will start to collect very quickly so if you found the video helpful and you enjoyed the content take a second to give me a thumbs up it really helps out the channel and it helps the YouTube algorithm get this video out to people who actually need to see it also don’t forget to subscribe we do some gardening some frugal living some food preservation and cooking some gardening and you get to join me and my family on our

saving from the 5 tips that I’m giving you and apply it to the next smallest debt and when that one’s paid off you roll it into the next one you roll that one into the next one and so on and so on in the meantime this is retired at 40 check out these other helpful videos if you have a minute remember to live a life simple and we’ll catch you next week oh hey I’m gonna have to call you back and

He'' s 48 now and he remains to live conveniently of his Investments after so many years and also it'' s not simply Pete there are writers blog owners people traveling the globe software program designers and also YouTubers that are using these concepts to lead a more open life and have actually connected some posts and also video clips in the description to that result some of these tales are really inspiring as well as it verifies the reality that a little of planning on the financial side can have a profound effect on other facets of one'' s life and also in a very favorable way currently there are three parts one needs to address when executing a fire strategy the primary step is financial savings as well as the hardcore fire disciple is expected to save anywhere from 50 to 70 percent of one'' s month-to-month revenue this is obviously less complicated said than done as well as most likely where a lot of people make up their mind that this is not their mug of tea but from what I have reviewed and what I'' ve experienced the saving need not be always specified as a portion as well as we can also collaborate with outright numbers which we'' ll see when I pertain to the estimations part currently when we hear words conserving our first response or feedback is on reducing our expenditures however cash can likewise be conserved by upping one'' s earnings which is what I recommend and also it does make good sense right I indicate there is a restriction to what one can conserve yet earnings generation has a much longer Path and in our situation it can include taking a part-time work doing some working as a consultant job asking for a pay walk transforming work for a far better salary reskilling oneself or obviously beginning a side hustle which can be a mix of active and also passive operate in truth I have a buddy in Bangalore who functions as a data scientist from Monday to Friday and then on the weekends he takes classes on an edtech system and likewise does some consultancy job to put it in numbers what was earlier a regular monthly saving of 50 000 Rupees is now quickly over 2 lakhs a month and also this guy has absolutely transformed his life around by leveraging what he recognizes so he'' s ablaze metaphorically talking as well as the the fire technique encourages us to find imaginative and also better ways of boosting our cost savings rate the Second Step under the fire approach is to invest carefully notice I didn'' t say don ' t invest I said spend sensibly which implies you need to recognize what is a necessary cost and also what can be labelled as discretionary currently people who exercise Fire have a bunch of helpful guidance for us these include driving an excellent pre-owned auto rather than a brand-new one renting out versus acquiring a house cooking in your home instead than consuming out track your everyday expenses terminate unnecessary memberships And so on from what I'' ve check out these small steps can minimize your regular monthly expenditures by as much as 30 percent which if you choose to take a look at it in a different way resembles obtaining a 30 incremented income so you wear'' t have to be stinky when it comes to your expenditures but attempt to be a bit extra logical regarding it and the third and final column in the fire system is the investment component currently on a standard level the system requires experts to invest as much cash as you can and as early as possible so it'' s the concept of compounding at job below and this table right here is a handy overview to how well your Corpus increases when you provide it the necessary capital and a good amount of time to expand currently the fire method maintains this spending component ridiculously easy one you spend some cash on a monthly basis or as we call it you established an sip an organized financial investment strategy as well as secondly this cash is purchased an inexpensive Index Fund or ETF which in our instance is either the cool 50 or perhaps a somewhat more comprehensive Nifty 500 Index so basically the focus below is to take part in the equity markets as opposed to proactively attempting to defeat it which by my Projection ought to Fetchers as well as assess return of 12 to 13 percent again the idea below is to take full advantage of the returns which is why equities have actually been recommended however if that makes you a little unpleasant after that you can also opt for a mix of various possession courses which is something I discussed in my video clip on asset appropriation a few weeks back yet an additional financial investment you can make which is motivated under the fire activity gets on account of easy income dividends from supplies rate of interest from your taken care of down payments revenue from your blog site your podcast YouTube channel monetization rental revenue are just some methods of making an Roi from physical or digital properties currently observe I have put this component under Investments as well as not earnings because easy earnings does call for a lot of in advance work but once you do the effort and you do it well one can anticipate a continuous stream of income over the following few years which will certainly not just support your layoff Passions however will also function as a safety net as a matter of fact there is something called an fi Ratio or the financial Self-reliance ratio which largely implies if your easy revenue is more than your costs after that you'' re making some wonderful progress on the path to monetary Independence so to sum it up keep in mind fire has three basic principles that you require to deal with which is conserve more spend much less and also invest intelligently if you'' re obtaining great value from this video clip then please do give this video clip a thumbs up as well as if you aren'' t a client yet after that do take into consideration becoming one as I can after that serve you videos as quickly as they are released and additionally show you some investing approaches suggestions and also tales that are consistently Message in the area section the original fire formula is based on the 4 percent rule which is the quantity of conserving you can securely take out each year without fretting that your cash will go out for example allowed'' s claim you are 29 years old as well as your month-to-month expenses are around 50 000 rupees if you intend to retire at 40 then you have 11 years to gather a retirement fund so below'' s the mathematics if household rising cost of living is likely to grow by 8 percent per year after that the 50 000 you invest currently will certainly rise to 1 lakh 16 000 rupees by the time you'' re 40.

So annually this pertains to 14 lakh rupees and per the 4 percent policy it'' s 14 multiplied by 25 which means you require to accumulate a pairs of three and a fifty percent crores to securely browse with your retirement years or at the very least that'' s what the fire formula says currently in my view there are some gaps with this four percent regulation that I assume we must all know first of all this regulation is fine for someone that has factored 25 perhaps three decades of retirement yet if the retirement Perspective goes greater allow'' s state half a century as an example after that this formula begins obtaining a little bit shaky and also I'' ve pinned a research study by Vanguard on this in the video clip'' s summary second of all the 4 percent guideline is an USA origination of the 1990s and has been tested on a historical basis when the yields on equities and also Bonds were sufficiently high currently we are not Americans and what works there will more than likely not help us which indicates there'' s an asset allotment as well as a market efficiency risk which requires to be made up and also ultimately because each of us have our own choices revenue goals saving patterns Etc I constantly felt it'' s vital to have actually a personalized fire execution strategy rather than picking something off the shelf which is why I produced my very own fire calculator which gives a more clear photo of just how much I require to accumulate when can I lazily retire exactly how much withdrawals can I do on a monthly basis and also at what factor as well as in what situations my retired life cash can run out so this undoubtedly starts with the inputs as well as you require to enter your current age the age at which you wish to retire and of program your life expectations which I wish is strong and lengthy after that comes your present portfolio of Investments and also this includes your shared funds fds ppf EPF gold as well as other stuff and also as a best practice kindly exclude the price of your house where you will be remaining message your retirement if you'' re still functioning after that input the monthly financial savings as well as the yearly boost you predict input the expected returns from your financial investment the resources gain tax obligation that can remain at 10 percent as well as lastly have a view on how a lot will certainly your expenses be in the first year of retired life and also the anticipated house inflation price as well as as soon as we have actually these numbers keyed in as I have received this example the resulting outcome must clearly tell us 3 things one the amount of financial investment Corpus we require at the time of retired life which in this picture is 2.2 crores at the age of 40.

We currently have Quality on exactly how much can be invested on an early basis which starts from 12 lakhs so that'' s one lakh per month and it increases by 8 percent every year and also third we get to recognize how sound or unsound this whole construct is like in this situation our computation shows that I'' ll run out of my money by the time I am 64 years old which is one more way of stating that I require to rework my fire math which can consist of a rise in the month-to-month savings and also the development price I can likewise consider expanding my retired life age to a greater number allow'' s say 45 years and lastly I I can be a little mindful with my expenses and rather of investing an absence of rupees possibly I can make do with 90 000. so there are lots of permutations and mixes you can check out but my recommendation is attempt to be a little traditional in your quotes specifically when it concerns return on investment the rising cost of living price as well as the article retirement month-to-month expenditures currently for your advantage I have actually enclosed the link of this worksheet in the video clip'' s description it ' s a downloadable sheet all the solutions are open so feel cost-free to transform the numbers boost the formula if required add your very own customization if it assists you however have a clear concept on when and where you require to be on the course to economic Independence so when I initially heard as well as checked out concerning fire I was not a big fan of it I imply saving 50 to 7 20 percent of one income is almost beside Difficult and I would have closed sharp had I not recognized that as a method fire is rather adaptable and can be used in various methods so the calculator is one means as well as you can make a tailored version of it yet then there are extra methods there are more variations of the fire technique as well as if you are interested after that do review up on lean fire fat fire Coast fire and a few more of these in relevant articles that I'' ve Linked In the video clip'' s summary the point is and also I myself recognized a very late in life that a number of us wear'' t know when to retire how much is needed to retire which is why we continue operating in a duty or profession that we put on'' t take pleasure in much and also'that ' s where I think fire as an approach may be the option and also it'' s just 3 things appropriate raise your revenue and also financial savings reduced your expenses as well as obtain your Investments right so read even more regarding this idea in the Articles and also internet sites I'' ve included the description as well as I sincerely wish you practice some type of fire moving forward if you located this video useful then do press the like button do subscribe to my channel share this video clip as well as I'' ll see you 3 days from currently until after that international

Can You Really Retire in Your 30s?

When the Social Security Act was passed in
1935, retirement officially began at 65. And the life expectancy at the time was 58. So from the very outset, “retirement”
wasn’t exactly considered a universal experience. But over the last century as life expectancies
have climbed, the concept of retirement has become synonymous with the final chapter in
a person’s life. Then, the book “Your Money or Your Life”
came out in the 90’s and introduced a radical concept The author, Vicki Robin, proposed that by
living with extreme frugality for a few years, younger people could essentially become “retired”
long before old age. She claimed to have achieved financial independence…
in her 20’s! Today, the phenomenon of financial independence
at a young age goes by the acronym “FIRE”. It stands for “Financial Independence; Retire
Early”. And it’s no fringe movement – FIRE has been
covered by the New York Times, Market Watch, and Forbes.

And it’s got more and more millenials wondering
“could I quit my day-job too?” This isn’t about dropping out of society
or living in a cave… necessarily. FIRE practitioners work extremely hard while
living far below their means for years to amass enough savings to leave the workforce. And it doesn’t mean you’ll spend your
newfound freedom just hanging out in bowling alleys like Jeff Lebowski. Many people who manage to retire early continue
to work–but only on projects they’re passionate about. But the question remains… is it possible
to achieve through savings alone? Peter Adeney, aka “Mr. Money Mustache”,
might be considered the modern FIRE movement’s founding father. Adeney was working as a software engineer
while living dramatically below his means during his 20’s. He took his savings and paid off debt and
invested it it in stock-index funds. By 2005 and in his early-30’s, Adeney and
his wife had amassed around $600,000 and a paid-for home. He calculated he had enough to leave the work-force-permanently.

Adeney suggests that Early-Retirement is possible
through three fundamental concepts: Frugality, Investing, and the “4% Rule” of withdrawals. Let’s face it – unless you luck into a large
windfall of cash, you’ll have to save up a serious nest egg to retire. And the simplest way to do that is to slash
your lifestyle. Normally, financial advisors suggest a 10-15%
savings rate to retire at a normal age of 65 or so. Want to retire ahead of schedule? Then you’ll have to level that up. Most early-retirees adopt a 50% to 75% savings
rate… or more! It’s not uncommon for them to cut restaurants
& bars, buy cheap cars, bike to work, make do with a smaller house, and avoid luxuries
like gyms, fancy vacations, and expensive hobbies. Simply stashing cash into a bank account is
a good start. But the FIRE proponents rely on the power
of the markets to boost their savings rates. Assuming you saved your money into a general
stock-market index fund, you might expect 7-10% rate of return, based on historical
averages.

Any experienced investor will tell you that
year-to-year returns will swing wildly, maybe even crash! So that’s where the third rule comes in… A 1998 study by Trinity University concluded
that a 4% annual withdrawal rate of your money in retirement should allow you to never out-live
your money – even in a bad economy. This means that even with the dramatic ups
and downs of the stock and bond market, as long as your yearly expenses stay below 4%
of your total savings, you should be able to live off them for… well, theoretically,
forever. Put another way: you take your annual spending
needs, then multiply it by 25. That’s the amount you need to become financially
independent. By now I imagine you’re wondering what it
would take if YOU wanted to to retire early. I think it’s time to… RUN THE NUMBERS! Let’s imagine you have a household income
of $85,000, but you live way below your means and only need $35,000/yr to be happy.

According to our rule of 4%, you’ll need
$875,000 in the bank in order to be financially independent. Through extreme thrift and aggressive cost-cutting,
you’re able to save $50,000/yr, which comes to 59% of your annual income. At that rate of savings, and assuming your
stock-index funds got an average return of 7%, you’ll have hit your goal in… 12 years. A good income, frugal living, and compound
interest are a powerful wealth-building combination. You might be wondering “What if I don’t
make a ton of money? Is this realistic?” A common critique of the Early Retirement
movement is that Adeney and other leaders of the movement had high-paying jobs in medicine
or engineering. Making big bucks can certainly speed up the
process. But it’s not a requirement. Take Jillian Johnsrud. She began working towards financial independence
at age 19. Her husband served in the armed forces and
she worked in customer service and sales. Over the next 13 years they made an average
household income of $60,000, with no year over six-figures. And by 32 Jillian had saved enough to be completely
financially independent. All while raising adopted & biological children
and climbing out of $52,000 of debt. She uses her freed-up time to travel the country,
write, and raise her children.

Today she does some work as a writer and coach,
but it’s on her terms. If you think that “early retirement” is
all about lounging around and avoiding work, you’ve missed the point. Instead, it’s about taking an active step
to replace a job you hate with work you love… and often finances are the biggest hurdle. As Adeney says about the FIRE phenomenon:
“Early retirement means quitting any job you wouldn’t do for free – but then
continuing right ahead with work in something that works for you, even when you don’t
need the money.” And if you’ve already got a fulfilling job
you love– congratulations, you already have the benefits of early retirement without having
to save up for it! So whether or not you want to sprint toward
early retirement, the mindset of reducing your lifestyle, living simpler, and building
a more rewarding work-life is something we should all be aiming for. And that’s our Two Cents! If you were to retire today, what would you do with your newfound freedom? Tell us about it in the comments.

Millionaire Grant Sabatier Reacts: Early Retirement With $2.2 Million To Live In Portugal

Hi, I'' m Give Sabatier, the creator of
Millennial Cash as well as the writer of Financial Freedom. And also today I'' m mosting likely to see this video clip,
“” Exactly how we retired early with $2.2 million to take a trip the world.”” I'' ve never seen it previously, and I'' m going to offer my response. See to it you similar to this video and subscribe to see even more of these response videos. Ready to rock and also roll? All right, let'' s do it. Pumped for this.'Because we ' ve been retired, I have been able to take a lot of time to do the important things that I wanted to do. And also that ' s the reason we began in our low cost of living nation, because they provided us a really excellent insight of where our cash is going to obtain us. Are they in Portugal? We really felt that we could readjust effectively as well as be able to live, retired this way. Points simply formed as well as we'' re. able to do more points instead of being caught up in the entire daily grind. Good work. The way of life … Relocated to Portugal. Yeah, I was right. I'' m Dianne and also I ' m Guillermo.And I was 47 when we achieved FIRE And I was 44 when I achieved FIRE. We had conserved up $2.2 million as well as chose.
to travel the globe in search of our permanently home. Portugal'' s like dishonesty when it comes.
to FIRE since I assume the cost of living is probably like 25% to 30% what.
If they'' ve saved$ 2.2 million, that. Dianne and also Guillermo have a.
lot great deal money cash conserved for for their journey.
established a little actual estate team in the USA, Northern Virginia,.
D.C.Metro location

. I was in the telecom market for over.
Two decades Did 4 years in the military in the.
Militaries. So I matured in Northern Virginia. It'' s one of the fastest expanding genuine. estate markets in the nation. I'' m guessing that in addition to obtaining.
nice huge compensations on her sales, she likewise spent in a pair investment.
residential properties. I'' m thrilled to see if that'' s the case. In 2018, our net worth was$ 2.2 million.
USD as well as currently today in 2022, our net well worth is $2.6 million.
There you go. That'' s an important point.They retired in 2018 as well as they'' ve been.
advancing market in background. And I started purchasing 2010 as well as simply.
the development of my financial investments from 2018 to 2022 has in fact outpaced theirs. They'' ve been able to take benefit.
of that uncommon opportunity. Whereas if you retire at the right time.
and also then your portfolio expands at 20% or 30% right after you retire, you have a.
lot more alternatives. My stepmother in fact was detected.
with cancer cells and also my mommy finished up having to look after.
them together with myself. As well as the week that he died, my.
mommy was detected with cancer cells. I invested even more than a year dealing with.
her. And also I realized despite the fact that I'' d constantly. wished to retire prior to 50, I just didn'' t also desire to wait any type of longer. I started actually having a look at our.
numbers.I began speaking with a monetary. expert.
I found the FIRE neighborhood and also I showed up.
It sounds like Dianne'' s actually. And also in truth, my spouse might care less.
concerning money or FIRE or economic freedom, but she was excited around.
It'' s important to keep in mind that it'' s a lot. Our strategy was to remain two years in each.
country to explore as well as see if we can locate our forever home in each country.So we did 3 years in Mexico due to the fact that of. the pandemic.
There was one added year that would.
keep. Afterwards, we wished to check out more of.
Europe. We have our money mostly in an actual.
estate market as well as in Roth IRAs. We put on'' t actually have an economic.
expert, and also we also have cash in brokerage accounts and also in high.
investment financial savings accounts. I wish they get right into their specifics of.
their realty financial investments. That'' s the initial thing that they provided. And also then the second was Roth IRAs, and also.
after that the last was brokerage. My guess is that they have a couple of.
rental buildings and also they'' re making some cash that way. Along with the cash that we conserved.
up for retired life, we kept three rental properties.Yes.

in Virginia as part of our.
investment portfolio. So we in fact offered a property in.
Alexandria, Virginia, that we were living in. I transformed $120,000 on that particular.
residential property. We acquired one in Gainesville that we.
stayed in for a number of years, which'' s one that we converted right into one.
Right here'' s one of the blunders they made. It'' s one of the fastest appreciating.
markets in the nation, extremely close to National Airport in DC, best throughout.
the Potomac River from D.C. And Alexandria building is something, at.
least in their situation, I'' d advise they hang on to as a leasing for as long as.
feasible. It'' s a lot more valuable dangling on.
it as a service for the following 20, thirty years than it was marketing for $100,000 to.
$ 150,000 in profit.So our common expenses in the United States before. We have actually just been in Portugal about 6.
months currently. So they'' re still residing in a high,.
expensive location for much less than $100,000 a year, but certainly cutting their.
costs considerably. My hunch is they can have FIRE'' d perhaps. 3, 4 or 5 years earlier. And also I ask yourself why they in fact made a decision.
to be more conservative.I invested time

in Lisbon myself, and also. it was tough to invest cash there. Especially when you can eat those fresh. sardines for like EUR1 per bushel and also
get a container of white wine for EUR2 or less. So I ' m in fact interested just how they ' re. spending a lot money unless they have a really baller house, which it doesn ' t. appear like from this video clip they have.
That understands, possibly they ' ve got some. secret splurges and they ' re really right into scuba diving or something. I ' ve been getting right into crypto,'so I may. be finding out regarding that even more or heading out as well as taking different lessons. whether it ' s languages or scuba'diving or yoga exercise. Oh, look at that. Diving. He called it. Something that'' s going on that we function.
into our daily regimens. Now, we'' re ruling out relocating.
back to the US.But something we'' ve discovered in life is.
never state never. So we'' re really looking extra at Eastern. Europe, Southeast Asia, potentially South America. And we'' ll proceed our.
journeys until we locate our little item of heaven. Yeah, they'' re feeling really
favorable. today because their investment portfolio has actually grown over $400,000 given that.
they reached FIRE and also retired early in 2018. They have a YouTube channel that'' s. most likely making some cash. Therefore they'' re expressing this incredibly.
favorable reaction. After having that development, their.
portfolios probably dropped about 20% this year, which is much more than.
would certainly have appreciated.So I ' d be interested to see if they ' re. still inevitably feeling by doing this, however in general, they ' re in a truly fantastic. setting.
The biggest point is maintain discovering,.
keep an open mind. You don'' t need to choose your for life.
home. And also in truth, maybe you should toss that.
suggestion out the window. They have tremendous flexibility and.
flexibility. They spend their time doing things.
that they like. They like discovering new points. You can truly do that throughout the.
world. With 1 being terrible, 10 being fantastic. I'' m going to clock Dianne as well as Guillermo.
at a solid 8.75. I believe they'' ve done quite a lot.
everything right. And in truth, perhaps way too much right. And also I would motivate them not to be too.
beholden to their spreadsheets and maybe take a bit a lot more dangers in their.
life.Maybe invest

a little bit even more money, if.
Well, that'' s about it. For even more terrific video clips, make certain you.
subscribe below to CNBC Keep it. Take a look at my book, “” Financial Freedom,””.
available on Amazon or your neighborhood book shop. And take a look at.
MillennialMoney.com to find out how to make, conserve as well as invest more money so you.
can construct a life you enjoy.

I'' m Dianne as well as I ' m Guillermo.And I was 47 when we attained FIRE And I was 44 when I attained FIRE. It'' s one of the fastest growing genuine. Below'' s one of the blunders they made. I ' m actually interested exactly how they ' re. That understands, maybe they ' ve obtained some.

point of time, I had been doing service for 2-3 years. The 2nd point is your travel. Do you have an auto or do you travel in.
taxicabs? I have a cars and truck yet I don'' t truly like to drive.
that much.So, just how much gas do you invest in a monthly.
You don'' t track expenditures in general? The means I track expenses is at the beginning.
of the fiscal year, I check how much money remained in the financial institution account. Throughout the year, I simply discover how much.
money headed out of your financial institution account. So, that'' s just how I establish just how much I spent. this year. On an annual basis, how much did you spend. in the last 3 years? Around 2 lakh rupees goes into maintenance. Culture, maintenance plus the various other property.
that I have. 5-7 lakh rupees is the vacation. One more 2-3 lakhs would be dining in a restaurant, drinking,.
events. Parties, not the bar parties. Moms and dads' ' 50th anniversary, the very first birthday celebration.
of the child. All these parties add up. 3 lakhs or a little bit more than that would certainly go.
towards your home help staff.These are the

big hits. Now, it is time for the important point, which is speaking regarding your economic self-reliance.
and also retired life strategies. The first and also important things is finding out your.
FIRE number. Exactly how much cash would I need to not function and can retire pleasantly. So, in which year did you seriously begin.
Which year? 2020 is when I really sat down and also did the.
numbers. Where I have this much cash, I will certainly place this.
cash occasionally. So, it took me around 3 months, maybe 6 months to figure out just how much money I specifically require,.
just how do I require to invest it.And then it took me a couple of years, 3 years.
to carry out that. So, if your yearly expense is 25 lakhs, if you take a several of 30, it is 7.5 cr. ? What are some of the turning points that you.
thought about? There are two major portions that I have kept. Among them is almost everyone likes as well as approves.
I have set aside 50 lakh rupees for that. I will certainly provide it to him at 18 or whatever ideal.
7.5 Cr plus 50L. Another 50L is what I wanted to keep as a.
sort of play money cash experiments that I would would certainly desire do.Angel investing is one of them. Crypto financial investments is one of them.
You should take a look at his YouTube channel,. okay? Monthly, 2 videos show up specifically. discussing exactly how to achieve FIRE. Okay? There is a web link in the description. Absolutely subscribe. That is 50 lakhs, your play money.How is that passing the means? Angel financial investments and also other financial investments? I have actually lost a whole lot of cash in angel financial investments. I have actually shed a little of money in crypto. also. But the biggest trouble in angel investments. is that it is incredibly illiquid.
There is no honesty. I had actually put 3 lakh rupees in a firm in.
Did you obtain an exit? The business closed in 2023. That'' s why you have actually allocated an amount which you yourself have actually called play cash.
quantity since 2015. You began spending or saving much more. From 2006 to 2015, did you handle to conserve any type of part of your.
We utilized to save this much.So, it was company, revenue was high, that'' s. why you didn ' t conserve. Your expenditures were always lower than what. Exactly how much portion of that, if you are comfortable.
sharing, just how much percent has come from marketing.
your business and also just how much percentage of the percentage.
has come from your financial savings? I would certainly claim that offering the company probably.
provided me 20-25%. Which essentially means that this was not a.
outcome of a particular occasion. No, no. This was because my organization was effective. The second aspect was that my costs were.
really low. The third aspect was that I constantly had significant.
financial investment in equity. The 4th variable is where I would state the.
selling of the firm comes in. The major money that was made was made by organization. And also allow'' s claim if you were doing your software. work, you would certainly have remained in the leading positions, Because instance, do you believe this much wealth.
buildup would have been feasible? If I was in India, then no.If I had actually travelled, then I would have been.
way in advance of this. Is that one of those points that you would certainly,.
you recognize, you recall and want to transform? I regret it each week. If I had been a great student, if I had studied.
in college, then I wouldn'' t have remained in the training. line. I would have transferred to the US or Canada or.
Europe or someplace after college. Due to the fact that I have actually jumped back from the errors.
of not examining in college. Yeah. The 8.5 cr that you have gathered, that too, what are the percents where you.
have spent? My existing total assets would certainly be somewhere in between.
12-13 cr. Out of this, 1-1.5 crore rupees, which is.
In the medium term pail, I have actually taken a.
balance equilibrium benefit. I have long term bonds, gilt funds, which is one more 4-5 years of expenses. 3rd container, which is my lengthy term pail, an additional, I believe, 6-7 crores would be in.
that and after that there is a parcel that I have.
which is around 2 cr.Tell me one point, how to tackle it? Mainly if you are young you require to save,.
create as a practice type of a thing yet your focus need to be on generating income. Where will you make money from? Either you will certainly grow in a task or you will.
join high-risk work like start-ups to obtain ESOPs or you leave the nation, you travel you.
earn a whole lot extra there, you conserve a great deal even more there as well as you come.
back as well as you understand you can be in a great scenario or what you do is you obtain a greater.
degree. Suppose you have actually done engineering, MBA, Masters.
in Design, there are a lot of avenues.Your primary emphasis ought to be on making more and. a growing number of money. Due to the fact that after one factor your expenses can ' t. get much less.
If you desire to boost the alpha, the.
distinction in earnings and costs that will only take place if you are constantly concentrating on enhancing.

for layoff is kind of approving a failure that you couldn'' t make your career.
in your life much better that'' s why you are going towards retired life. Yes economic freedom is essential, early.
retirement is not. If you remain in a task that you like, that you.
enjoy or I will certainly claim if you remain in a job or in a profession that you don'' t hate, do not think. around early retirement.Early retirement became vital for me due to the fact that. I wasn ' t taste what I was doing. So this is our quick money round. You need to address the questions as quickly as. possible. If you had an unrestricted spending plan,
what would certainly. you present your better half? Vacation, deluxe holiday. If money was out of factor to consider which in. your instance is true, what would certainly you provide for a living? I put on ' t understand I will keep try out. it which is what I am doing now.
As well as the last concern is for individuals who desire. to achieve economic freedom as well as you recognize are seeking layoff, what are. 2-3 nuggets of advice that you would share with them? For monetary freedom, raising your. income as a lot as feasible that needs to be your priority.The second priority should be that mass of. your cost savings ought to go into equity.

If you are chasing very early retired life, I believe.
that is a poor chase to have. That should be, that resembles surgical treatment, that. should be the last option. Try transforming your task, attempt altering the city.
If there is no avenue, that is when you assume. I am certain that a whole lot of individuals have actually found out.
a great deal from today ' s episode and video. Ensure to take a look at his YouTube channel.
Every month at the very least 2-3 video clips are made on. Anything in this video, subscribe to my network.
