I began to seek out books about self-development and personal finance.
Looking back through my journal recently, I found my reading list from that time and I would wholeheartedly recommend all of these:. These were the books that influenced me more than anything else in my life had done before. But through this reading, my eyes were opened to the possibility that being financially successful was realistic even for the faithful employee type like me. I started to apply the principles and my nest egg began to grow.
A whole new world of knowledge opened up in front of me. I could immediately start applying my knowledge and putting plans into action. Among the many podcasts in my feed — how to get a spouse on board with financial independence is a common theme.

Once my mind was made up I was on my way. And when I sit and reflect on where I am now, I can see many other advantages of being single when seeking financial independence. This is not going to turn into a rant about how all relationships are doomed from a jaded cynic fed up with life! Quite the opposite. I read about and listen to many happy couples making this dream work together.
But I want to show that there are many paths to FIRE and it can be done as a single person or as a single parent. Yes, there are disadvantages. Whatever our status in life, there will be upsides and downsides. If you had asked me back in the days of toddler groups and soggy breadsticks could I see myself being financially independent in my future, I would have laughed. Surviving day by day and falling into bed in an exhausted heap, was just how life was back then. But ask me now — what does it feel like to be seeking FIRE as a single parent?
It feels great actually. It feels liberating and exciting and full of possibilities.

Life moves on, children grow up, relationships fail and relationships thrive. As a singleton myself, I agree with pretty much all the advantages you list. So massive respect and admiration for you on your journey with your children and not too far away from your goal!
