Welcome to our blog! We’re Cody and Georgi, two 25-year-old financial independence aspirants living in Central Washington with our cute and mischievous toddler Eloise, and our not-as-cute but equally mischievous dog, Pilot. We stumbled across the FIRE (Financial Independence, Retired Early) concept 4 years ago and completely flipped our finances from a dismal cycle of paycheck to paycheck to an impressive investment in our future.
Despite not having a six figure income and starting out with $83,000 of consumer debt and minimum wage jobs, we’re on track to reach FIRE in our early thirties. You can read more about us here. Since starting our journey, we’ve put thousands of hours into studying the ins and outs of early-retirement planning, and we’ve put the most critical knowledge and wisdom we’ve gained into our book. And while the book is done, our journey to FIRE isn’t. So we will be using this blog to publish more insight, tips and data on pursuing, reaching and sustaining financial independence.
Thank you for being here and we hope you enjoy what you see!
