Jillian Johnsrud, who also blogs at Montana Money Adventures, is part of the FIRE community — “financial independence, retire early” — where individuals may take extreme measures to save and invest as much money as they can so they can quit their 9-to-5 jobs and travel the world, or do something else they love. Some FIRE members may opt to work on a passion project, blog about their experiences, or work a lower-paying side job. Others may uproot themselves and move across the country. The point is, they can do whatever they want because they’re generating enough income, through ads on their blogs, rental properties and investments.
