The people have spoken………
I created a #FinancialIndependence Day page awhile back. It highlighted bloggers and the day/month/yr when they would reach FI. Should I bring it back? Vote & Share @BudgetsAreSexy @madfientist @retirein1500 @Mrs1500 @FrugalWoods @FieryMillennial @CoachChadCarson @MissMazuma

My favorite part about the financial independence community is how open we are about our finances. Not afraid to shout from our internet boxes our hopes and dreams about early retirement, debt repayment, or dream jobs right for the world to see. So what if sometimes it’s just our Mom or a couple of friends reading, it’s not easy telling everyone your goals!
It’s motivating to see the results from when people enter their numbers into a spreadsheet and determine that this month and year in history will be when they declare their goal to reach financial independence and retire early!
While incredibly motivating it does not come without some real world difficulties those in the FIRE movement are all too familiar with. Try saying that out loud to someone that you want to reach financial independence and retire early. Chances are they might laugh at you or just generally think you are dreaming, possibly think you are crazy!
I’m guessing 99 times out of 100 they don’t say “Me Too and share their financial independence day”!!!! That’s what this page is for, hope you all like it!
I know there are so many blogs and bloggers that have declared a financial independence day, probably without even knowing that this page exists. Let’s change that!
It’s incredibly easy to be included in the Financial Independence Day list shown below. Simply click on the Google Sheets link and follow the instructions to add your website, financial independence day, and the link to the page where you shared this incredibly big goal.
Once your FI Day has been added, I’ll send out a Tweet with your name and FI information. I’ll update the form on a weekly/bi-weekly basis, so if you don’t hear from me please let me know via email.
In fact I would love to hear from you anyways! I like getting emails from fellow financial independence bloggers and I would love to hear from you. If you know someone out there who has shared their financial independence day and is not on the list, share the FI Day page.

We want to ask questions like “are my finances optimized?” “Is my financial independence day correct?” “Did I miss something”.
