Welcome to BK2FI, an FI (financial independence) site where I share my thoughts about saving, investing, and the pursuit of early retirement. I also share the story of the winding road I have traveled on my way from broke (and almost bankrupt) to FI. I have made a lot of mistakes on my journey to FI. I have been the poster child for financial ignorance along the way for sure. But I have overcome many failures and bad decisions to make great progress on the path to FI! If you are, like me, an imperfect person seeking to learn about how to become FI, this is the site for you!
I started with nothing, put myself through college and law school, then became a bankruptcy attorney. As a young attorney, I was always living paycheck-to-paycheck and was drowning in debt. Ironically, my financial transformation was motivated, in part, by the many clients that I represented who ended up in bankruptcy due to a series of poor financial decisions. One day I realized that I was on the edge of filing bankruptcy myself! It was at that moment that I decided to stop imitating my clients, get educated on personal finance and investing, and turn my financial life around.
I look forward to sharing my journey with you and hearing about yours as well! Thanks for visiting!
