That was a really great article! I'm glad it focused on the entrepreneurial ambitions of many people in the FIRE community. I've always felt that starting my own business is much more appealing if there isn't a cloud of financial fears over every decision.

Finally a great article about FIRE and MMM. I've always been a Kiplinger fan and nice to see that they can write a fair and unbiased article about MMM.

I think they should have led off the article with the quote from the final paragraph:

Quote
(It's) "not about living a terrible life of deprivation. Itís about understanding what makes you happy and cutting down your spending on what doesnít make you happy.Ē

This is the way to explain the philosophy to people that don't "get it".
