Thank you Pat and Dave for sharing your thoughts on the pathway options for early fire. I can only appreciate living in the big smoke on full throttle earning the big bucks has enabled you a fast fire yet taken its toll. Wow! you won’t know yourself after a year of down gearing and increased head space for reflection! I am amazed given your ‘time pressures’ the wonderful insights and efforts to share your life journey with us. A BIG thank you. Congratulations on starting the transition and look forward to hearing more about moving on, marriage and managing parenting in the coming years….I am excited to hear about this juncture.
For me, In my mid 30’s I enjoyed early fire with part time professional work during child rearing years. About 4 years ago decided to returned to full time professional work to bolster superannuation for early retirement in mid 50s. The timing of your podcast is wonderful as I count down my last few pays. So it is possible to access early FI & later retirement as a professional.
