- One of my favorites: Getting Rich: from Zero to Hero in One Blog Post – I enjoy this post because it’s his version of a “Start Here,” it captures his story and as someone who is one of the OGs of FIRE, it’s worth knowing its history.
Jacob Lund Fisker – EarlyRetirementExtreme.com

- Follow on Twitter: @extremejacob – He’s not very active on Tiwtter though
- One of my favorites: Manifesto – Much like MMM and knowing your history, I think it’s powerful to read Jacob’s post from 2008 (yes, nearly 10 years ago) because it very much captures the spirit of FIRE. “Success is having everything you need and doing everything you want.” — not a bigger house and more space and more stuff and… read it. Then read it again. Then chase it with this post on how he became financially independent in 5 years (it’s not some bull-shit clickbait title, it’s legit).

- One of my favorites: 10 Qs to Retire Early is very much in the “technical” nature of how their minds work – it goes through the ten questions you need to answer before you retire. It’s a great way to start thinking about FIRE. Oh, also, another good post is my guest post (haha) about what they don’t tell you about retiring early.

- One of my favorites: How I failed my daughter and a simple path to wealth is not about early retirement specifically but about broader money management. It also hit close to home since it talks about him trying to share his money lessons with his daughter. As a father to young kids, this is something I hope to do one day.

- One of my favorites: How Much Money Does a Doctor Need to Retire? is a post that breaks down how much you need to save to actually retire. Here’s the thing – his approach applies to everyone.
- His favorite underrated FIRE blog (and why): actuary on FIRE because “he’s good with numbers. He excels with spreadsheets (pun intended), but he’s also quite good with words and mixes humor into his posts, making them more enjoyable and relatable.”
