Quickly, for those not familiar with "FIRE", the term stands for Financial Independence Retire Early. It's a popular movement that epitomizes the work to live not live to work. "FIRE" is more generally thought of as people living in tiny homes and penny-pinching. "fatFIRE" is about earning enough money to retire as early as possible and not work again. Enough money saved to retire is very different from person to person, but the calculation is basically somewhere around 25x your salary. You're not penny-pinching, you're living your normal life, sans employment. I found a reddit article about a nurse who retired with $8.5M and was contemplated retiring (fatFIRE). This was fairly shocking to read as I never even imagined that was remotely possible. My question for the community, is fatFIRE truly doable as a nurse? If so, what are some of the best-kept secrets to getting there?
