Recently I have discovered two bloggers who have figured out how to retire at a young age, and do what they want for the rest of their life.
Props to them, that’s cool! It's great that they write about it so other people can start to do the same thing.
So here’s the thing, I honestly don’t want to retire when I am 30, I just want to spend all of my time working on my own projects and making them profitable.
Good thing I started doing that 2 years ago.…...
I find the best way to spend your time doing what you actually want is to live a frugal life by keeping your living expenses down.
The good news is that both of them have entire sections of their blogs dedicated to writing about being frugal. It’s full of tools and tricks to help you along the way.
Nonetheless, they have lessons and principles for investing, travel hacking, and still enjoying yourself while you're putting money away for the future.
The thing I see time and time again with middle aged people who work decently high paying jobs, is that their lifestyle continues to inflate.
Sooner or later, they cannot even think about retiring because of their million dollar plus mortgage and the $70k per year college tuition for each of their kids.
Moral of the story is to live life exactly how you want, and to not keep up with the Jones.
