If you are following my blog and you are serious about financial freedom, I invite you to be among the first to join my new Telegram Channel – “FIRE with Ivan”.

For the past 12 years, I have been using this blog and email to communicate with you. If you are still reading my blog articles and emails, I reckon that what I wrote has helped you in certain ways, and I thank you for your encouragement over the years.

About 5 years ago, I was “infected” by the Financial Freedom bug and I summarized my findings in my book “FIRE Your Retirement”. I realize that FIRE is NOT just about investing or earning more, but a dedication to design a lifestyle that is not supported by you doing something that you don’t enjoy.

Even though money can’t buy you freedom, it gives you security and choice. That is why you can’t achieve FIRE without a solid financial status. After dedicating the past 15 years to advise people to work towards this status, I have a lot to share. There you are, the birth of “FIRE with Ivan Telegram Channel“!

Bitesize learning

I found out that we often accept and believe the wrong thing when we first learn something. Only if we document our journey, we can see how foolish we were. There are many theories about financial freedom, early retirement, and associated investment strategies. But if you are not careful, you may be suffering from the cognitive bias called the Dunning–Kruger effect. You just don’t know what you don’t know.

Below is a chart about how we learn new things.

Therefore, I am a firm believer in bitesize learning. People often overestimate what they can achieve in a day but underestimate what they can achieve in a year. You can’t achieve financial freedom or investment success overnight, but you can improve your financial situation day by day.

But I know not everybody is interested in the nitty-gritty stuff. So I want to dedicate a channel for those who are very keen to know more and understand what is behind the scene.

What can you expect from the channel?

This is NOT another channel to bombard you with some financial news, new product, or stock market updates. What I really want to share is what is in my mind. What you get is a copy of my financial journal. You will hear from me about:

  • My personal opinions about the hottest retirement and investment matters.
  • What I read, watch, and listen daily and how I interpret them.
  • A daily dose of inspiration to live a better life.
  • And sometimes, perhaps, how I live my personal FIRE life.

You can also click the “Discussion” button to let me know how you think about my sharing.

I will broadcast daily and I will only share high-quality content. There is a lot of misinformation and contradicting messages on the web. After years of learning, I have developed the skills to filter them out quickly, so you can pick up some useful stuff that you can apply to improve your financial situation and knowledge immediately.

This channel is NOT for everybody, it is only for the people who are serious to achieve their financial freedom. If you are one.
