What is early retirement?

Our History: Meet Steve and Courtney Adcock

Steve Adcock and his wife, Courtney, started Think Save Retire with the dreams of retiring early from their jobs in IT. That dream became a reality in December 2016 so they must’ve done more than a few things right! Lucky for us, they were disciplined and documented their entire journey here on the blog for us all to learn, rinse and repeat.

Here’s a quick recap of their story straight from their mouths (or typing fingers)…

Steve: What does “retired from full-time work” mean? It means that I no longer hold down a full-time job and, hopefully, never again will. I may work occasionally on projects that I enjoy – even for money. When that work stops being fun, I move on to other things.

I’ve been featured on major media sites like CBS MarketWatchForbesBusiness InsiderCNBC, and Vice. Check out my media rap sheet for links to where I’ve been featured. 

While I don’t consider myself an expert on personal finance, I do come at this from a solid foundation of exploiting money and making it work for you. I’ve done it. And, I’m offering my wisdom to anyone who wants to read it.
