Excuse the thread hi-jack.
We've been reading mmm for probably two years. I discovered the concept of financial independence in the mmm sense around 4 years ago when I decided my dream career that provides me fulfilment, happiness and purpose just doesn't exist in my realm (after too many years of tertiary study and general introspection/soul searching...). So started on my investment journey (and education), as well as maximising savings; made plenty of mistakes a long the way so far. I very luckily met my lovely wife just over three years ago and she had a very similar mindset and philosophy on life. Together we have augmented our ideas and embraced a lot of what mmm writes about, because we believe it and it's very logical. We are approximately 4 years away until we hit our target.
We had been working away for 18months and been back in Perth for the past 7months, so thought it was time to see how many other like minded people live in Perth.
Edit: oh, what time will the breakie be at?
