What Uncle8888 observed from our local investment blogoshere sphere; those bloggers who are reaching or has reached FI or FIRE in their 30s or 40s didn't clearly indicate that they are high income earners and high savers. Investing for dividend income as source of retirement income definitely will depend on your account size, earned income and saving rate. It is just simple Maths! Hmm ... or don't scare! Leverage up your account size also can reach FI or FIRE sooner and faster.
