My good friends over at Daily Trade Alert asked me to put together a multi-part series on how I retired at such an early age on a fairly modest day-job salary. So I pulled back the curtain on my entire journey, discussing the ups and downs, the saving, the investing, the hard work, and the rewards. I hope it leaves you with lasting inspiration.
This is the fourth and final article. I’m including a snippet, and then you’ll see the jump to the article. Enjoy!
So I pulled back the curtain, guys.
I showed you exactly how I went from below broke at 27 years old to retired at 33.
I like to say that retiring early is easy but hard.
See, it’s easy to pull out a calculator and figure out what you have to do. It’s easy to punch in numbers. Anyone can do the math.
But it’s hard to actually make the major lifestyle changes necessary to have the math pan out in real life. It’s hard to make supposed sacrifices every day, for years on end. It’s hard to swim against the current of society. It’s hard to be your own person.
