Start Your Ascension With Miguel, Get a Second Dose of Dark Rooms, Decorate Your Denim or Walk Around Repeating “Bitch, I’m a Cow.”

Increasingly, millennials are finding ways to join the FIRE movement and quit working forever in their late 30s. It stands for financial independence, retire early, and it can be achieved a number of ways.

Per the non-failing New York Times, “Some practice ‘lean FIRE’ (extreme frugality), others ‘fat FIRE’ (maintaining a more typical standard of living while saving and investing), and still others ‘barista FIRE’ (working part-time at Starbucks after retiring, for the company’s health insurance).”

In any case, all three FIRE lanes require some serious planning – there are numerous Reddit threads dedicated to the topic, for starters.
