The FIRE movement continues to rapidly gain popularity. If you aren’t familiar with it yet, get familiar. FIRE stands for Financially Independent, Retire Early.

This concept first became popular from Vicki Robbin’s book Your Money or Your Life. This book talks about how people sacrifice time in the endless pursuit of money. This explains the title – you pick either your money or your life.   

This really resonated with me because we live in a society where success is usually measured by money. The more money you have, the more successful your life is. But at what cost? Your time.
