Hi! Thanks for stopping by. My name is FIREceutical. Like most FI bloggers who want to remain anonymous, there isn’t a great deal of ‘identifiable’ information that I am going to give you. However, you may have guessed from the title of this blog that I am a Pharmaceutical Industry professional. No, not Sales, I am definitely no salesman. I come from the Medical side of things.
Now I know what you are thinking, a pill you can take to achieve Financial Independence? You are right, there is no pill to magically heal your financial wounds (and that wouldn’t be challenging, right?). What I am hoping to achieve is to deliver some posts that may assist others on their journey to Financial Independence (and Early Retirement, if that is indeed your goal). And the main benefit? I am going to put an Australian-spin on things. Yes, I am an Aussie (obviously….. again, the title of the blog). There are so many US blogs out there that talk about 401k’s, Roth IRA’s and the list goes on. Nothing against this of course. Most of my favourite FIRE boggers are from the US. However there are certain topics (think Superannuation for one, asset allocation for the Aussie investor) that need to be covered by Australians.
Financial accountability is another goal of this blog. So, like many others out there, I will be tracking and posting my monthly net worth, which I have only really been doing for 12 months or so now. Hopefully you can come along for the ride. I don’t have the worst job in the world, but am indeed a ‘corporate’ desk jockey with the “9-5” gig. No way I’m doing this for the next 30+ years of my life. I have every intention of saving aggressively and investing for the next 5 – 10 years and enjoying everything that life has to offer at a much younger age than what is “traditionally” accepted!
