Saw this one doing the rounds on FB. Looks like you sign up to a course to learn to trade binary options or similar and get Rich

Feudal Britain needs land reform. 70% of the land is "owned" by 1 % of the population and at least 50% is unregistered (inherited by landed gentry). Thats why your slave box costs so much..

    The poor !!!!!! can’t afford a razor, is this a charity?
  • Personally I don't trust these sort of websites, you're making them rich not you.


    FIRE is about retiring early and there are plenty of free resources on how to do it.

    Shouldnt be doing the rounds on faceache as they technically have banned binary options adverts - though if this is advertising a course in how to gamble in a rigged game then that may be their get out clause.

    This is just there to sell you a package of his nonsense and rip you off as it won't make you financially independent or be able to retire early.

    I signed up for his mailing list based on it being FIRE-releated (even though it's a bit late for the "E" part for me) but it's not really. I still get emails trying to flog me stuff, but I can't say I've read any since the first couple.

    The FIRE communities I’ve seen are extremely frugal and advocates for diversified passive investing.
    Paying for a dodgey course on trading is pretty much the last thing they’d do.

    I am currently 33, and think Mr Money Moustache is good for FIRE movement.

    I have 4 BTL's now and a full time job, and worked out i need 8 before i achieve FIRE.

    I have found it a lot harder in the UK to achieve FIRE than our American counterparts... it just feels they have more disposable income/ cheaper housing to achieve it quicker.
    My Goal: From 1st of Jan 2015 to 31st of December 2015 is to save 30000.

    48.78% towards 2015 target.

    105.3% towards 2014 target. :j

    I couldn’t agree more. That website is the antithesis of the conventional FIRE movement. The site asks if you are happy with the income your investments generate, and I can honestly answer “yes”, because I have followed the FIRE principles of frugality and investing in low cost funds for the past 30 years. FIRE takes discipline and time, but it can work and I retired when I was 52 with no debt and complete financial independence.....even from the stock market.
