Reader Case: Swiss Family Early Retirement Plan Upended by the Current Market

It’s been a while since we’ve done a reader case, so let’s break open the vault and take a look. This one is a tad involved, so let’s get cracking! Dear Kristy and Bryce, I have been following your blog and also read your book, not once, but twice. We have been preparing for FIRE for a few years and by the look of the numbers we will be FIRE ready in the next 2 years but a few things are holding us back.
