Welcome to Money Flamingo! 🙂

If you are looking for a better, more enjoyable way to Financial Independence, you have come to the right place!

I believe that it is simply not necessary to spend 10+ years working and saving like a maniac to get your freedom back.

Money Flamingo is all about alternatives to the standard path to FIRE. This is where you can learn how to use strategies like Semi-RetirementCoast FI and Flamingo FI to get your time back sooner and create a happy, fulfilling life along the way. This is an Australian blog, but the topics discussed here are relevant to FIRE enthusiasts everywhere.

The goal of this site is to show you how you can design a life plan that offers the best out of both worlds: more time and freedom now and financial independence and security later on. I also believe that the right mindset is key if you want to get the most out of the freedom Financial Independence creates.

Here are some of our most popular articles to get you started:

We also have an awesome calculator that lets you calculate your Coast FI, Flamingo FI and FIRE numbers (and ages!). You can access it here: Semi-Retirement Calculator.

If you feel an alternative path to FI might be for you, I’d love for you to join our private Facebook group. It’s an awesome place to ask questions and meet like-minded people.

I also have a regular newsletter where I share our latest articles, great resources I’ve come across and some bonus content as well. You can sign-up here:

I share our own journey to Financial Independence here on the blog as well. You can find the full archive of our monthly (and now quarterly) updates here.

If you are into binge-reading, you can dig through all our articles, case studies and interviews on the blog page.

Feel free to reach out via the Facebook community or the contact form if you have any questions.

I also work 1:1 with a small number of people and help them navigate their transition to a more balanced life based on their priorities. If this is something you are interested in, please fill in the waitlist form and I’ll be in touch.

Oh, and if social media is your thing, you can follow us on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook! 🙂
