My wife and I achieved financial independence in our early 50s. We retired soon thereafter. That is early in conventional terms, but it pales in comparison to what quite a few others have achieved. Some folks have left their jobs as early as their 20s and 30s – achieving so called “extreme early retirement”, or ERE.
So our story is by no means extraordinary. I believe that financial independence and early retirement are within reach of many people. And I hope that this blog will help and inspire readers who are interested in achieving their financial goals. Here’s how we achieved ours.
