My wife and I got some coverage in Times of India a few weeks back.
The coverage was mainly about how some Indians are working towards their Financial Independence (or let’s say Early Retirement).
Here is the article:
After the article was published, I was amazed by the number of emails I received from people telling me how they too wished to achieve financial freedom. It made me happy that people are giving importance to this idea – irrespective of the reason that’s driving them.
Most readers would know that achieving financial independence is one of my major financial goals.
By when – Let’s see… I am planning to do it by 40. Fingers crossed! 🙂
But let me clarify one thing here… as many people get it wrong.
Becoming financial independent or achieving early retirement doesn’t mean that I would not be doing anything after I turn 40. It only means that I would have accumulated enough money to take care of my expenses for the rest of my life.
I will (no doubt) continue to do what I am doing right now – investment advisory.
Here, I must thank my wife Aditi who is my partner in crime in working towards this goal. Without her support, I could not have imagined aiming for such a goal. 🙂
If you are new to this idea of Financial Freedom or FIRE (Financial Independence & Retiring Early), then I have already written about it a few times:
Will try to write more about various aspects of Financial Freedom in near future – as I can clearly see that there are many people out there who wish to make Early Retirement as their biggest financial goal.
