Good morning all – and happy Saturday!
I don’t know what the weather is like where you are, but in my neck of the woods, it’s shaping up to be an unusually nice weekend given the time of the year.
And so, the next 48 hours will be spent raking leaves, enjoying a coffee in the sunshine, taking the kids to a petting zoo, and catching up with friends over a good bottle of wine.
I hope you’ve got yourself an equally enjoyable agenda lined up – and if not, there’s still plenty of time!
Have a wonderful weekend all – and enjoy the link round-up below.

Early retirement really does take work and intentionality. Otherwise, the time is easily wasted and lost.
I forgot, but do you have kids? I basically have been spending 75% of my free time with my kids. They are growing up quick and I don’t wanna have regrets not having tried my best as a father.
Yeah, I’ve got two kids. Am also trying to max out time with them – we are still in the “Daddy superhero” stage which sadly won’t last forever!
Thanks for the links and articles over the last few months.
So Bankernotfired should really be Corporate Development Guy as I’ve taken the plunge and checked out of banking as I highlighted I might do a couple of years ago.
Question for you and any of your US readers – Financial Samurai etc.
I’m thinking about engineering a move to the US and work out there doing a similar role, which is probably feasible. I’ve a family in tow with youngish children. Currently early 40’s. Not too sure about the outlook in the UK hence the thought process.
Net wealth £5.5m / $6m, which somewhat gone down the Gurgler over the last 12 months but still very healthy relative to many others I appreciate. So sticking where I am is probably feasible.
Nothing definite yet, just open minded. We would be entirely open as to where we lived. Interested in people thoughts from 30 thousand feet as to pros and cons, any very high level advice, where best to live (I like Boston a lot for ex).
Appreciate fairly random but I thought you’d be interested in the fact I put my money where my mouth was and exited banking 🙂
Wow, that’s big news BnF (or should I call you CdG now?). What is life like on the other side?
I’ve got meaningful life news of my own which are somewhat related to what you are contemplating, though I’m still in banking. This is a good reminder for me to finally pencil down that update post which I should have up in the next week or so.
In the meantime, feel free to shoot me an email to bankeronfire at gmail dot com and we can trade some thoughts offline
