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 first article. I’m including a snippet, and then you’ll see the jump to the article. Enjoy!
Less than zero. Below broke. Beyond bankrupt.
That’s where I was in my late 20s.
I almost couldn’t believe I was in that position.
We graduate high school with wide eyes and big dreams. We’ll conquer the world!
At least that’s what we’re told. And I genuinely believed it. I know deep down inside that I’m capable of anything.
Then life sets in, with all of its cruel reality.
After struggling with some personal challenges throughout my life, such as my mom committing suicide when I was 21, money became a scant concern.
I never thought about money. And so it never thought about me.
