I read with interest on the blogger mentioning the importance of “No” in his life. He has been a carefree person who did not care about FIRE in the early stage of his life. It was sometimes in 2009 in which his employer (at that point of time) decided to choose “No” for me. In another word, he was let go from his job immediately. He was broke and had a debt of about $30,000 at that point of time.
He did not give up and started to find the new jobs. He focused on investing for FIRE. Eventually, he managed to quit full-time employment sometimes in 2014 at the age of 32. This occurred a day after his birthday. He did not achieve full FIRE and had the courage to quit the full-time employment for his interest. He eventually reached FIRE sometimes in 2016.
Currently, he is based in Chiang Mai (Thailand). He moved to Thailand in late 2017. He used geo-arbitrage as a way to maximise the value of the proceeds from his investment portfolio.
If he can do it, so can we.
He can be found at the following blog:
You may want to consider reading his blog as an aspiration.
