For the first 32 years of my life, I spent my time fighting for more – knowledge, power, success, money. I never really valued these things, I just sought them mindlessly because that’s what I was taught. I saved a lot, but I also delved into the world of Consumerism. I achieved everything I went after and yet was never content. In fact, I would say that I was getting less content every day.
In May 2011 I left that all behind me. I quit my job, sold my car, downsized my house, sold most of my “stuff,” and moved my family to Colorado. I now work a lower stress job, and will completely retire in May 2013 at age 35. My family and I are happier than we’ve ever been.
Who I Am
In my professional life I’m an engineer and an entrepreneur. In my personal life I’m a father, a husband, a runner, and a writer. Now I’m a journeyman in search of happiness, financial freedom, and self-reliance.
My Early Retirement Journey
I am a true capitalist. And by capitalist, I mean that I lend my money (capital) to others, and they pay me back more later.
My current investments include:
- Individual Stocks
- Treasury Bonds
- P2P Lending
- Real Estate
- Online Business Ownership
- Private Money Lending
My goal is to make all of these 100% passive. I am 33 years old now and will retire at 35. I’ve worked hard to increase my capital in order to set up a life-long passive paycheck. I plan to enjoy a lifetime of financial freedom.
