More than FI: an Introduction

Hello, and welcome to my blog! I’m a 30-year old Dutch woman aspiring to become financially independent together with my long term partner J. Why did I choose More than FI as a title for this blog? The reason is that financial independence is going to take us a while, and we also want to enjoy and live life while working towards our goal. Most personal finance bloggers striving towards financial independence are on track to be there in 5-10 years. I don’t think that is realistic for us, so I want to share also more about my life in the meantime.

The ultimate goal for us is to have more freedom and options to live our life according to our values and not be tied to a certain job to pay the bills.

We started our personal finance journey in 2012. In the first few posts I will share how we got started until where we are today.
