Dispelling the FIRE Movement Misconceptions

Dispelling the FIRE Movement Misconceptions

The Fear of Second Place

The Fear of Second Place

I debated writing this post for a long time because I didn’t want to come off as an over-competitive freak. However, I decided that it was better to be transparent rather than to only highlight the positives qualities about myself. I HATE losing.

The Importance of Health & Fitness

The Importance of Health & Fitness - Fly to FI

Health and fitness are a crucial part of life, yet they are often overshadowed by the pursuit of money. I believe that the reason for this is due to the delayed gratification of a healthy lifestyle.

Networking: The Key to Growth and Progress

Contrary to its generally negative connotation, networking is one of the key elements for growth and progress. No, I’m not referring to the sell-life-insurance-to-your-Facebook-friends type of “networking”.

I am talking about forming real connections, attending relevant events, and garnering genuine, meaningful relationships. I credit networking for a majority of my successes in business, relationships, and life in general.… Read More “Networking: The Key to Growth and Progress”
