What is the FIRE Movement?

What is the FIRE Movement?

2019-12-0900:39:20

In this episode of the Australian Finance Podcast, Owen and Kate discuss the FIRE movement. FIRE stands for Financial Independence, Retire Early (or as some people like to call it, FIOR - Financial Independence, Optional Retirement). It's as much of a mindset as it is a way of life or an aspirational goal. FIRE is all about increasing your savings rate, consuming less, pursuing happiness and having the financial freedom and flexibility to choose if, how and when you work.

Don't leave setting financial/money goals to January each year - this is something you can do at any time, and review on a regular basis.

Need some tips on how to negotiate your salary and get a pay rise? Whatever do you, don't put it off! Companies rarely approach you with their best offer, they'll have a scale that they can negotiate between. You might not ask for the higher amount, which means more savings to them. Working harder isn't enough to get most of us a raise - we have to ask for it.

We love talking about ASX ETFs on The Australian Finance Podcast and how they have made the world of investing more accessible. While they can be risky we know they're simple and they work, and you don't need any financial know-how to get started. It's as easy as opening up a brokerage account, picking a low cost diversified ETF and buying small parcels frequently over a long period of time. They can be your entire portfolio or just the core, but they instantly open up the world of investing to you. They definitely have changed our investing journeys, and have simplified the complex world of finance. So in this episode we talk about exactly why we're so keen on ETFs.
