Everyone is an individual and each individual has his or her own opinion about something. Whether it's politics, religion, education, corporal punishment...the list goes on. With 7 billion people inhabiting the planet, that's a lot of opinions. In some areas, there may be many differences of opinions, but when it comes to financial independence, there seems to be 2 camps: those who embrace the pursuit of FI and those who are against it (for some reason or another).

One of the things you'll often hear when starting out on the path to financial freedom is: The first 100K is the hardest. I've heard this a few times and wondered if it was true. While I haven't yet reached that milestone (though I'm getting close), I've looked at a bunch of other people's net worths posted online, and I want to offer an opinion on this.

Unless you've been hiding under a rock, you've no doubt heard that Britain voted in favor of leaving the European Union. Yeah, they voted to do. I'm not going to get political in this post as I'm not current on all of the political ramifications and it's fallout is still unfolding. However, one of the things I'm most concerned about is how it affects the global economy.

One of the chief motivations, I think, people seek out the FIRE lifestyle and/or set out on this path is due to becoming unhappy in their job. That's not always the case, of course, but I suspect it's definitely a motivating factor. I know when I'm feeling glum about what I do (which is more and more often), reading someone else's workplace horror story is a way of commiserating and understanding that I'm not the only one who experiences this.
