Hello! Welcome to, a blog about early retirement. And financial Independence. Do you want to retire early? Not just early, but super early? What a coincidence, because I did too! I retired from full-time work at the age of 35.

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.

Our lifestyle no longer depends on any source of income. Today, any money that we bring in by working for fun is icing on the cake.

These pages follow my journey from a traditional working stiff to an early retiree through a series of easier-than-I-thought steps of living below my means with frugality, maximizing savings and, perhaps most importantly, knowing what makes me happy in this life.

For a little more background on me, visit the About page. But for a lot more substance, here's what you need to know about my journey and how to get the most out of this little blog. And who knows, YOUR journey might look a little something like mine.

How I achieved early retirement (Must Reads, please!)

To me, retirement isn't just about "not working". Retirement is about choosing what to do with your life outside of the restrictive confines of a 10-hour / day job. I've written about my path towards early retirement a few times on the blog.

For example, here is a collection of "Must Reads" if you want to get the most out of my journey:

How to achieve early retirement

My thoughts on retiring early are simple. Remember, "retirement" means different things to different people. Don't let society dictate to you what retirement "should be". That is entirely up to you, my friends.

Think Hard. Save Fast. Retire Early.
