Welcome to Caught on FIRE (Financial Independence & Retiring Early)! This is another take on achieving financial independence (aka FI) and financial freedom. Some also refer to this as early retirement. While the terminology is a bit scattered, I assure you the end goal is the same. It’s about how to be free of financial burdens and the various levels of it. Whether it’s getting out of debt, getting your bills paid, or retiring early you must actively make changes in your life to accomplish these personal financial goals.
