Seen Vesp's post on FI forum, and will try and move here.
Thought it would be good to have this thread as a general chat one, much like the big FI one and then all the other threads for specific ideas.
I have a few quid to sink into FI/FS now, because my mortgage is approved and I don't have to worry about the bank asking for bank statements now.
I was gonna put £1000 into FI for a £1000 challenge, to turn £1000 into astroturf'ing our new garden (Circa £3000) when the house is built (was due Oct/Nov but pushed back) and I think that would be fun (with the disclaimer that i do have the money for the garden at a push, saved, but would rather FI pay for it :p)
Then I was looking at FS and £1000 into there or even split the first £1000 into half and half.
The problem I have is, I do see potentially huge growth/profit in FS but it is all subjective, more of a gamble and could all end in tears, whilst FI is smaller, more consistent gains, but with less risk.
