Hi Swiss FI seekers,
It seems I’m the first to share my story here
As the title says, I’m Italian, I earn a good salary as Software Engineer since end of 2012. I grew up very frugal and I saved even when I was earning an italian salary. Even when I was earning an Italian PhD salary (800 euro per month)!
So this windfall salary plus my natural frugality allowed me to achieve savings rate in the range 60-80% and aim to FI in few years. My saving rate is lying though! Can’t use our friendly shockingly simple math behind ER formula because I won’t spend as much as I’m spending these days once FI. Why? Because I’ll probably move back to Italy.
Anyway, you wanna see my numbers? Here’s my publicly shared Net Worth document, with incomes, spending, savings, saving rate, forecasts.
I update it monthly and post progresses on my blog, category finances.
