Welcome to Financial Independence with 2 Kids. My goal is to identify and explore unique ways that parents can work towards FI. I have been working towards Financial Independence for 5 years, and I discovered when I became a parent 3 years ago that many new hurdles appeared on my path. I explored most of the leading FI blogs and podcasts, but I found that most of the lifestyle optimization side was impractical for a family. Some examples include:
- Life in Flip: Who wants a baby who barely sleeps to begin with living in a construction site?
- Cutting the Cord: Who is going to explain to my toddler that they can’t watch Disney Junior?
- Tiny House/RV Living: How would school age children get an adequate education?
These are only a few of the limitations that parents will see when diving into the FI community. In the future I will discuss these types of topics as well as unique opportunities that exist for parents working toward FI.
