One of the best parts of the FIRE movement is the community. There are FIREy folks all over the world eager to chat about saving money, play board games and proudly show off their 2003 Honda with 220,000 miles on the clock. The hard part can be finding these people:
Is the lady in the rusted car with a coat hangar antennae a FIRE Follower or just a struggling college student?
Is the guy with the ratty clothes a secret millionaire?
We fly under the radar. We don’t show off. We don’t wave a frugal flag.
The internet has solved some of these issues. We now have Choose FI groups and Mr. Money Mustache forums. And now, there is FI Clubs to help connect the world.
Introducing FI Clubs
What are FI Clubs? Why should I join this site?
FI Clubs is a site that helps connect you to existing resources. It’s not meant to replace existing groups, but help you find them.
I’ve already created a group on Meetup. Why do I need this?
That’s great! Register your group on FI Clubs to help others in the community find you. You don’t need to move away from your current platform.
I don’t run a club.
That’s fine. FI Clubs is for individuals too. Use the site to help find clubs.
One of my favorite ways to use FI Clubs will be for connecting with others when I travel. FI Clubs will help me meet folks in new towns.
The quality of our relationships is one of the biggest indicators of happiness. And this is the very thing I’ve struggled with in the past.
Where is my tribe?
I’ve since discovered that others like me are everywhere; you just have to find them. And FI Clubs is a great way to do just that.
