Meet the FIRE man

| November 5, 2018 | Reply

My name is Greg Robinson, and I’m the FIRE man.

And, no I don’t mean the type that puts out fires and rescues cats from trees.

No, I mean FIRE, as in Financial Independence, Retire Early.

It’s a growing movement of people — just like you — that have decided to take a different path in life.

Instead of slogging away at a job they hate, year after year, before finally collapsing into a meagre retirement somewhere around their 70th birthday — they have decided to take control, become financially independent, and retire early.

Some of them aim to retire by the time they are 30. I didn’t quite mange that, but I did escape the rat race by the time I was 42, and now live the sort of life I used to dream about.

I spent my career working as an IT consultant…

It meant long hours, and long commutes. I often had to work away during the week, so instead of spending time with my friends and family, I’d be holed up in some poxy B&B and living on McDonalds.

And the work bored me stupid. I’d sit at my desk wondering what I was doing with my life. How had I ended up like this?

Hopefully you enjoy your job, but I have a feeling many people find themselves in a similar situation. It’s pretty depressing.

So, I decided to do something about it.

I started to research the best approaches for breaking out of my rut. How to get out of the 8-6 daily grind, and really beginning to live my life the way I wanted to…

It took me about a decade, and I made many false starts on the way, but I eventually got to the point where I could kiss the corporate world good-bye and really start to live.

I was finally Financially Independent and could Retire Early.

Nowadays, I live in beautiful North Yorkshire with my family, and my time is largely my own…

I go cycling, walk the dog, spend time with my daughter and take multiple holidays every year. We don’t spend a fortune, but we certainly have everything we need.  And, even though I don’t need to, I do still work — advising others how to become financially independent as well. It’s on my own terms and I love what I do. So, it’s not really work at all, just a continuation of all those years of research.

But what do I actually mean by being financially independent?

Well I think Warren Buffet — the world’s greatest investor — summed it up very well in one of his famous quotes…

“If you don’t find a way to make money while you sleep, you will work until you die”


Instead of spending every day slogging your guts out to make money, you need to flip the switch, and make your money work for you…

In other words, you need your money to generate passive income streams that will build up over time. Once they are big enough, they can replace your salary and at that point, you can retire.

And, you would be amazed at how many opportunities are out there to generate passive income. You just need to know where to look, and that’s where I come in.

I’ve spent years researching — and implementing — these strategies. And believe me, as well as the successes, I’ve made quite a few mistakes along the way. That’s good, it means you don’t need to.

Nowadays, I’m considered to be a FIRE expert and enjoy teaching everyday folks — just like you —these real-world strategies…

If you like the idea of being Financially Independent and maybe even Retiring Early, stay tuned. We have something very interesting coming up.
