Last year, The Green Swan introduced a new FIRE metric that received a lot of attention, the Swan FIRE Prowess Gauge.
I, and many other personal finance bloggers and readers, calculated and publicly reported on our FIRE Prowess scores on our own blogs and in the comments section of The Green Swan’s original post explaining the concept of FIRE Prowess.
Since I recently completed my income taxes for 2017, I now have all the data needed to update my own FIRE Prowess score for last year. I’ve been keeping track of my finances for a long time, and we discovered last year that my FIRE Prowess history was one of the longest ones reported.
Last year was another good year for the ROMT family’s pursuit of financial independence and early retirement, and our FIRE Prowess score for 2017 confirms we’re continuing to move in the right direction!
