About Me

I am a 27 year old man, who is pretty much defined by my incredible laziness. I hope to rack up a ton of money, in any way I can, as fast as I can, with the purpose being to retire as young as possible and to stop having to work.

My parents raised me to think that working would be great if I could find a job I really loved. So, I worked really hard, I got into good schools, I opened up a world of possibilities for myself. I didn't pay attention to money.

I have discovered this is complete BS: As long as I have to continue to get up in the morning and be obligated to go somewhere and do something, I am not free.

The purpose of my journey is Freedom.

That said, however, I am extremely cautious by nature, and am hesitant to take unreasonable risks to achieve financial freedom. I am not willing to "bet it all on black." I plan on taking aggressive, but risk-assesed steps to achieve my goals.

Yup, this is a joint effort. Only together can we earn and save enough money so that we can both retire soon.
