Welcome to MyFIREJourney, I started this site to serve as a place to document my journey towards achieving financial independence and reaching early retirement.  I also want to provide others with helpful advice on personal finance and just share my thoughts and experience with others.

Here’s a little bit about me.  I grew up in the Midwest and attended a top rated University in the South majoring in Engineering.  I’ve worked for major MegaCorps (a term that I’ve I got from www.mrfirestation.com) over the past 15 years, working my way up the corporate ladder.  I enjoy what I do, but am counting down the years and weeks til I reach my # ($2 M in the year I graduated dollars).

My plan is to use this site as a place where people can find pertinent information on all things related to personal finance & retiring early.  As I’ve been reading other blogs & sites out there, I’ve discovered some great information, but if you don’t know what to look for, it can be hard to find.  So my plan is to post my thoughts & observations along with data & analytics that can help others.  I also plan to link over to those experts who have already put together some great content (no sense in reinventing the wheel).

I welcome questions and comments on what topics you’d like to see me cover.  My goal will be to post at least once a week to start and as I get the hang of this more, increase my frequency.  But ultimately, I want to put out great content.
