Achieving Coast FIRE was a huge accomplishment for our family! 

But with the recent market downturn, is Coast FIRE even possible for us anymore? 

We’ll explore our Coast FIRE status and what we’re doing to combat these uncertain financial times as a family.

Also, Joshua Coombes, the leader of the grassroots movement “Do Something for Nothing” shares how the simple act of giving a free haircut changed his life (and the lives of thousands of others).

GUEST BIO:  Joshua Coombes

In 2015, while working at a London hair salon, Joshua Coombes took to the streets with his scissors to build relationships and offer haircuts to men and women experiencing homelessness in the capital. This inspired him to begin posting transformative images on social media to amplify these voices.

The stories of the people he met resonated and others began to get involved. #DoSomethingForNothing was born—a movement that encourages people to connect their skills and time to those who need them. Coombes’s mission caught the attention of media outlets in Europe and has rippled worldwide. Coverage includes appearing in National Geographic's documentary 'The Story of Us, with Morgan Freeman' released on Netflix internationally. Today, Coombes continues his efforts, working on the streets in new countries, humanising the issue of homelessness globally. He currently lives in London.

When I found the FIRE Movement, I really did not like my career path. I found myself saving a lot and scrutinizing every purchase my family made.
