FIRE-FUN is an instructor led 4 week online educational virtual class workshop where you learn how to be financially independent, retire early and have fun. This is based on the authors' own story, (who quit this rat race when he was 43 years old).
Sri started this initiative as a book, then he thought a workbook may be better but finally realized an interactive virtual class would be most effective. The goal is for everyone to have forty years of fun!
FIRE does not mean that you live on peanuts in some remote desert like recluses, lack vacations or entertainment. You get to keep a similar lifestyle as your current lifestyle, take vacations, have entertainment, hang out with friends, enjoy life and still achieve financial freedom.
The path for FIRE is not penny pinching. Instead, it is about focusing on the big ticket items, understanding how things work, optimizing, planning, investing and executing realistically.
Do note that you do not need a fat inheritance or win a lotto to achieve this. People with ordinary income like average salesperson, accountant, teacher, engineer, marketing manager, software tester etc. can reach the goal, which will be demonstrated in the workshop. In addition, you will also notice a very good margin of safety built-in in these calculations to account for any unfortunate situations.
Unlike books, where you have to read through hundreds of pages, digest them without any help when you get stuck and end up abandoning this goal in frustration, this workshop is an interactive, step by step walk through with the author. In this virtual classroom setup, you will work through real-world scenarios, several how-tos, illustrations, exercises and worksheets, and ask questions to clarify your doubts to determine what are the right choices for you and avoid pitfalls that will help you to create your own FIRE-FUN plan.
