November marks the sixth consecutive month of net worth updates we have shared on The FI Project! At first we were really hesitant about how much we wanted to share on this blog, but in the end we wanted to be fully transparent and open with all of our numbers, unique circumstances, and our personal path. I will admit putting all of this on the internet can be scary, but we are trying to share a story and the journey of how we are achieving financial independence. This narrative is different than the typical narrative that seems to have become standard (or at least promoted) in a lot of media on the topic of financial independence.
Ultimately we think that every path to FI is unique but there will be some things others may be able to replicate, or learn and apply to their own personal situation. As a teacher and a researcher my hope is that anyone reading this blog views it as only one of many possible perspectives and paths that they will read and draw from to determine what can be assimilated into their own personal circumstances. That has been my approach to financial independence for years, and I enjoy adding just one more unique voice.
