A FIRE blog worth poring over
There are many on the FIRE path sharing their journey, but not as many who’s achieved FI and still sharing so openly. Outside of sharing her journey, she’s also very open with advice and tips on Twitter.
Excellent new blog!!
Fire and Wide has become my favorite Retirement blog. Michelle shares practical advice and personal stories from her experiences in becoming Financially Independent at 43. It’s like chatting over a pint with a friend. But that friend is also razor sharp, funny and gives great advice. Why are you still here? Go read it now!
FIRE done right
Michelle has a wealth of knowledge written in a clear and friendly way. Michelle has actually achieved FIRE so has some seriously interesting takes and methods to help get you there. A true expert on the topic! Also follow on Twitter!
Life after FIRE
Many bloggers stop writing after they reach their goal of FIRE. Thankfully, Michelle started writing after retiring early at 43. She shares valuable insights and advice on her early retired life, making me dream of the day when I can finally quit, haha!
Re-affirming my Believe in FIRE
I haven’t achieved FIRE yet, so it’s great to go to a blog where someone has been there, done that. She’s an inspiration. She shares everything from how she achieved FIRE to what she’s doing now that she’s there. I love following her journey, and hope to join her in freedom soon. She’s a reminder that seeking FIRE is the right path for me.
My Favorite FIRE Person!
I ‘met’ Michelle and discovered her awesome blog via Twitter and I have to say she is one of my favorite people in the personal finance community. So friendly and genuine and it really comes through in her writing, which I enjoy reading! As someone who has already achieved FIRE, she is an inspiration and great resource for all your *burning* FIRE questions 😉 I’ve learned a lot from her blog and love how introspective she is. She broaches some important subjects anyone and everyone should be thinking about while pursuing FIRE and does so with a curious and open mind. Highly recommend checking out her blog!
We Want Your Voice to be Heard
Wealthtender exists to help people discover the most trusted and authentic professionals and educators in the finance community.
Your honest reviews of the providers featured in our directories help people decide which providers may be best suited to their individual needs.
The majority of people trust reviews as much as personal recommendations, so what you write in your review should reflect your own opinion and experience with the provider.
Tips for Writing a Helpful Review
Be descriptive. Instead of just saying that you like or dislike a provider, share why. What have you enjoyed most or least about your experience with the provider? Have they helped you overcome a difficult financial challenge or strengthened your knowledge about particular money matters? The more details, the better!
Be honest. Your rating and review should reflect your real experience with the provider.
Stay relevant. Help ensure your review is useful to others by avoiding off-topic discussions or personal opinions not relevant to your direct experience with the provider.
Be objective. Try to highlight both positives and negatives in your review, even if your experience skews heavily in one direction.
Make your review easy to read. Reviews should be readable for others. Use proper grammar, avoid excessive capitalization or punctuation, and be sure to check your spelling.
Be yourself. Don’t post as, or pretend to be, someone else, and do not say you’re associated with a person or organization with which you are not.
Be nice. Don’t write abusive, hateful, threatening, or harrassing content. Avoid personal threats, hate speech, obscentities, or inflammatory language.
Respect the privacy of others. Don’t post information that can be used to identity another individual or compromise their privacy.
