Copenhagen meetup April/May

Post by FBeyer » Sun Jan 29, 2017 7:06 am

Send me a PM if you're interested in joining the next meetup and you aren't already a part of the Danish slack community.
The primary topic should be along the lines of systems thinking and the rennaissance ideal.

Final Boarding Call: In case you are quite certain you've signed up for the meetup but still don't know where to go, please send me a PM and I'll sort you out.

We have several different channels through which people have voiced an intention to participate so I'm trying to tie up all loose ends.

Cheerio!

I am interested in joining events/meetings in Copenhagen in order to get to
know a few DK-FIRE people. I am kind of hoping that I am not the only crazy
person in this country who wants to break free from my prestigious “career”
In the pharmaceutical industry.
Who am I then? I would say that I am the kind of person who does things in the
reverse order: I have realized that we are potentially FI with the appropriate
Changes to our lives. We are therefore not exactly frugal role models - yet...
I am therefore working on the exit strategy for an early-ish retirement
- I am 46 - married with 3 kids - on the surface a very settled “forstadsfrue”.
I would very much appreciate if one of you would reach out to me... 😀

I am not so much into social media and forums - I would much rather like to
Interact with you guys in real life via meetings, seminars, emails and
what not...

I'll try to be as blunt in writing as I am in person (just know that it's only a matter of getting the answers you're looking for as quickly as possible, not a matter of hatin' on you).

Are you interested in ERE as a philosophy, or are you interested in financial independence on a more general and less mentally taxing level?

ERE meetings are sloooooowly converging on lifestyle design, systems thinking, and strategies. Other FI forums (of which there are several DK related ones on facebook) are interested in how to save money on insurance and where to buy mutual funds.

We DO discuss frugality, but more as a side effect of better life strategies, not as a matter of buying the same stuff you always buy, but cheaper.

Also: you DO realize that this meeting was last year, and it's not something that is going to happen this May, right? :D

To FBeyer:
Good question(s)...I am primarily interested in the FI part - but I am a curious generalist ("ENTP" according to Myers Briggs) who is also dwelling into a lot of the more philisophical aspects.
I have done a lot of reading - and still do - but I have come to a point where I would really like to make some real life "FIRE friends" in DK :-)

Here's what you do:
1) Write a good introduction post in the introduction section of the forums
2) Write a good informative post somewhere else (people here REALLY like informative posts.... :roll:
Now you have 5 posts total on the ERE forums and you are allowed to send Private Messages to other board members. Once you can do that, shoot me a PM so we won't have to communicate via public forums and I'll hook you up with some likeminded people.

In the meantime there is also: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1145367158930357/

About 1.5 Wheaton levels below the ERE forums in terms of making the most of your money.
