Suze, Gee & the Girls
Financial Independence. Although I understood the term, I first realized it beginning of 2018 that this is more than just a term, this is a “thing”. This was the time of the big Crypto-boom. Crypto kings were emerging daily on Facebook, posing with Lambos and celebrating their new life after becoming crypto-rich and as they claimed, “financially independent”. It lasted less than 2 months, and they disappeared.
My name is Gee, and I live in Hungary with my wife Suze, and we have 2 little girls. We were born in Serbia (Yugoslavia that time), we studied in Hungary, lived in the UK, but then the wind blew us back to Hungary.
And we want to be financially independent.
In this blog we will write about our journey that begins in March, 2019. This is not the time when we started investing towards our financial independence, but we never set it becoming financially independent as a goal before. Let’s see if we can make it, and f so, how long it will take.
Our plan is to invest 1500 EUR/500.000 HUF every month into stocks, peer-to-peer lending, property market, cryptocurrencies and tangible businesses (e.g. I always wanted to have a pub in Budapest). Our risk tolerance is a bit higher than average but hey…this is not a retirement saving.
