During my recent media interviews, several journalists asked me the following question:
"But concretely Marc, how many people like you want to be financially independent in Switzerland?"
I have tried to extrapolate my newsletter subscribers and Google Analytics data to at least provide them with some Fermi estimates. Nevertheless, I'm curious to know the reality. So I've created the form below to see what's going on.
I'm voluntarily asking for your email so I don't get false votes, which would make the poll invalid. As with everything else, your data will remain anonymous and I won't do anything with the emails' list.
So the question is "FIRE goal, or rather there to create options for you future self?".
And the two possible answers are:
- Answer 1: I have a date, an amount in CHF, and a FIRE plan precisely defined of when I will stop working because I will be financially independent
- Answer 2: I come to the blog more for tips and tricks around frugality and money in order to increase my wealth to have options in the future (e.g. sabbatical, part-time, starting my business, etc.)
Now it's up to you:
And here are the live results:
PS: If you're a media or an other blogger, feel free to use this data. The only thing I'm asking is that you mention mustachianpost.com as the source.
