For people in and around London who are already part of the FIRE / FI community, but who'd like to meet up in person and discuss burning questions like 'What's a safe withdrawal rate?', 'What ETF should I buy?', and 'What's the ideal side hustle?'. Or for those who are new to the topic but are dreaming of quitting the rat race well before 65, or just want to get on top of their finances.
Having a side hustle (or 3) is often seen as fundamental for achieving FIRE. For most of us, however, being an employee forms the bulk of our income during the wealth accumulation phase. With that in mind, the March meetup looks at the importance of your 'main' career, and how to keep growing your income steadily on your way to FI.
We'll share some of the lessons we learned (and mistakes we made) on our own career paths, and talk about what we might have done differently.
As usual, we look forward to hearing all of your experiences and learning from each other.
On the agenda for tonight:
* How to choose the right career * Tips for maximising your salary (and benefits) * Negotiating promotions, role changes and new jobs
