    I liked this episode, but I think you misrepresented many of the FIRE bloggers a bit. Most want to retire from working for someone else, or the “traditional” W2 job. But they don’t want to stop “working”. They want the time back to work on things that are passion projects and enjoyable. Even the most famous of the FIRE folks, Mr. Money Mustache, has a co-working space as a business and other money making hobbies.

    I agree with you guys, don’t get me wrong – I also have to work at something. For me, I had to build up my nest-egg to financial independence (which I did) in my 40’s which now gives me the time to start businesses that I really enjoy. I’ve started two, I ‘work’ hard at them, but it’s so much fun most of the time it kinda doesn’t seem like work.

    There are a few FIRE bloggers who retired and aren’t really working at all, seemingly. But even those guys/gals have income-producing blogs, or we wouldn’t have heard of them in the first place 🙂

    Great stuff, keep it up!

      I definitely understand, but FIRE seems to have a lot of different sub-levels so I’m never sure how to generalize the niche. I’ve seen FIRE bloggers that post pictures all the time of traveling and portraying that idea of actually being retired (in the traditional sense)/not working in a substantial way, and then some that literally just jump into full-time entrepreneurship like I did and call it retirement to get features on the major media outlets for their blogs. And then of course, there are the people who retire and don’t start blogs to talk about it…so who knows what they are doing!

      So to me, it seems like a few people (certainly not all) in that community take advantage of the inherent shock value/clickability of the traditional definition of retirement with headlines like: “How I retired by 30-something with $1,000,000”. They know that it’s much more effective than something like: “How I changed careers and chose work that I enjoy more by 30-something”.

      But, when readers get confused/feel duped because they know the traditional definition of “retirement” as not working anymore, the bloggers argue that the definition of retirement is the problem and needs to change…even though they just used the fact that people generally know retirement as not working to get the click.

      Wasn’t really intending to write that much, but I feel like I could do a whole podcast on an outsider’s view of the FIRE community haha. I think the perception is much different than what the people in the community feel it is. It’s actually something I’d like to get a FIRE blogger’s perspective on for a M$M post, so let me know if you’d like to do an interview or something along those lines!
