๐Ÿธam i ACTUALLY retired at 40?๐Ÿพ RETIRED AT 40 VLOG


see you later have a good day at school bye honey have a nice day oh hey honey
how was your day I’m exhausted am I retired at 40 in a word sort of I’m
currently 37 almost 38 and the dream that my wife and I have always had this
to retire at the age of 40 which has been a struggle but we’ve made some
major sacrifices in our lives to get to the point where we’re at right now and
it looks like we’ll be able to retire at 40 our goal is 2020 and I’m not
currently retired but we have made quite a few real estate investments and real
estate related things that we’ve done in the past as well as a couple other side
businesses that have allowed that has allowed me to stay at home with my kids
and put a minimal effort into working none of what we’ve done would be
possible without my wife and her ability to deal with things that we’ve had to
sacrifice on and being understanding and supportive and her being a major player
and the ability to retire at 40 I wanted to start the retired at 40 channel
because I wanted to document our journey through the course of when we are
retiring and then past our retirement a lot of things will change will be on
fixed income we’re having to downsize certain things
life’s to make it possible we would be moving to a different area and a lot of
the things that I want to document and post in the meantime are things that
relate to that so gardening and growing your own food and you know home
improvements renovations of your house on your own being a little bit more
self-sufficient in life and kind of ways to trim the fat
of financial burden so I invite you to come along on our journey with us buckle
up and stay tuned because it’s bound to be a bumpy ride along the way this is
retired at 40 if you’re not living life simple you’re not living life we’ll
catch you next time

  • I'm a fan of Dave Ramsey, I'm retired at 50, a little later than your plan, but still happy to ๐Ÿ™‚not have to punch a time clock! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • We retired at 42. Thanks, Dave Ramsey. I just found your channel while looking at Harvest Right. I'm a fan.

  • Good luck on your endeavor! I hope it turns out to be just the right thing for you and your family. I would just caution as a much older guy (43!) that hunts and gardens for most of my family's food and spends countless hours on DIY stuff; just be careful that whatever you do, it doesn't turn into a one man obsession. This is in no way a judgement on you personally. It's just something that I've seen in myself and many other guys when we hone in on grand objectives like self-sufficiency, early retirement, or daring adventures. We can be hard charging, self-convincing and kind of blind to our spouses level of interest and investment.

    As an "analogy", when I cross the street, I often leave my wife in the dust. To me, oncoming traffic is cause for urgency and I assume my wife is speed walking as well. I just happen to be the one leading us to safety. However, she puts much more faith in traffic lights and sees my flight as abandonment (as she potentially walks slower then normal to better illustrate the extent of my depravity).

    I think that fit my point. You get the idea. So in conclusion, it's great to have grand goals, especially shared ones. Just keep those dear to you in the periphery so you can gauge their investment in the goal as well. – And keep making those videos. Thanks for taking the time to do it.

  • unfortunately i have been retired since i was 22, im a disabled vet and cannot work. it has taken 20 years for me to get to the point that i am conferable financially and am looking to go to the Philippines for the weather as it will help me physically. ill watch your channel to see what your ideas are. thx

  • I retired at 38 from the Army. It was not my original plan but I am happy now that I don't have to deal with meat heads at work every day.
