I want to thank every single one of you who took the time to drop a line or two in the comment session.
If you are a classroom teacher, I want you to know that admire the work you do in the classroom juggling tens of problems at a time under the most stressful circumstances.
My stories here, may not be the next best-seller, but I am sure that you and I can agree that there are many similar situations in our lives as classroom teachers, special area teachers and paraprofessionals who work in the educational system.
These stories are really just a potluck of hundreds of stories and experiences that I have heard over the years from colleagues in and out of my district and even friends. Due to the current situation in my homeland Venezuela, all my friends have migrated to many different parts of the world. Which has given me an opportunity to gain some insights on the cost of living in other countries.
I also want to thank and highly recommend some of the sources of information I have used to learn about this wonderful movement called FIRE (Financial Independence /Retire Early) community. Since the beginning of year 2018 took it upon myself to figure out what I need to do to retire. Thanks to all the free information put out by FIRE bloggers I have learned just a ton of things I had no clue about. I am completely out of consumer debt(Credit cards) and now my wife and I are about to make the last payments to walk into the hallways of student loan freedomville!
I know some of the math in some of my posts was a bit speculative and it’s easier said than done. But never underestimate yourself. The only thing that is holding ourselves back inhabits in our minds.
With that said, if you are interested in some of the information I presented in the last 30 days, check this out; embrace the power of “podcast listening”. It is possible to become the CFO of your money.
