About Me

A tragic irony of life is that we so often achieve success or financial independence after the chief reason for which we sought it has passed away

The above quote describes why Get Financial Independence (GetFI) was born. Too often we get constrained in trying to earn a good living that we lose focus on planning for the future or even living the present to the fullest.

My name is Mr A (leaving it out as this is still a secret journey), and I live in Germany. I am also an immigrant from India and moved here around 5 years ago. At the age of 35, with a wife and toddler in the tow, I am attempting to navigate my way into being Financially Independent.

My first goal is to achieve a Net Worth of 100k in the next 18 months. At the time of writing this, I calculate our NW to be 54k

It is through this blog I will aim to improve my finances, help you figure out yours, and also work with you to achieve this common goal.

Why this blog, and why Get Financially Independent?

The aspiration for GetFI is the FIRE movement, but with a difference that we will not worry too much about Retiring Early. In the end, my goal is to reach a comfortable state with my finances without the fear of job loss, illness or old age poverty.

I am lucky to work in a job which combines my favorite areas of work and skills and it also gives me a sense of purpose. I would love to continue doing this and yet be Financially Independent to be free of worry.

I will be stoked if you wish to connect with me and share ideas, tips and your aspirations.

Its time to GetFI!

Lets be friends...

So, the next steps are to start reading the blog. I will also be happy to hear from you on your journey and if you are willing, work together to help you figure out what you could do to optimize for free.
