About: Financial Mechanic brings to mind tinkering with money and learning how to use money as a tool. I wanted to write about my own financial journey to help others hone their own. I hope that by sharing my story, there is one more example for people to use as inspiration on their own financial journey.

The name “The Fioneers” comes from a combination of: Financial Independence (FI) + Pioneers. We think the name fits well with our deep-rooted love of adventure. It’s also a constant reminder to enjoy the journey. Our motto at the Fioneers is: "The journey should be remarkable as the destination." Learn more ►
My tagline is to live a more purposeful life one cent at a time, and I think even after half a decade, that’s still my purpose. Though my blog is really about chronicling my own journey and holding myself accountable, I hope my message resonates with others, too. My husband and I are both teachers and we are new-ish parents, so I think our journey is pretty relatable. Learn more ►
I’m writing from the position of having already achieved wealth and financial independence, and I want to help you get there too.

I came up with the name “A Purple Life” a little randomly. To me, “A Purple Life” means a slightly different life, a life that involves constant questioning instead of going with what you’re given.

My mission is to help others reach financial independence, along with us (we aren’t there yet!), with finance tips and by promoting the type of lifestyle that being financially free can buy (RV life, travel, security, etc.). Partners in Fire isn’t just about the upper-middle class who has the same options that we do. It’s about all of society – and I want even the poorest among us to be able to achieve financial independence. Learn more ►
