EARLY EXIT ACADEMY FOR YOUNG ESCAPE ARTISTS

Sign up to get your FREE minicourse, Kiss Your Job Goodbye: 3 Powerful Secrets that will help you Escape the Workforce Early.

​How would you like to reach financial freedom in your 30s, 40s, or 50s? Think of the possibilities! Does it sound like a far-fetched fantasy to you? Well, there’s no secret formula for financial freedom. The ingredients are universal – pay off debt, save, and invest most of your paycheck. The sooner you start, the sooner you’ll reach your goal. Check out these real-life stories:

  • ​Peter Adeney (“Mr. Money Mustache”) retired at the age of 30 after he and his wife stashed away two-thirds of their take-home pay, accumulating $600,000 in investments, and paying off their house.
  • ​The Olsens used “side hustles” to help them amass $1 million, which enabled them to quit their jobs as public school teachers while they were in their early 30s. They now travel the world with their young daughter.
  • ​The Buckleys retired at the age of 43 and spend their days touring North Africa and Europe in their motorhome. They continue to earn income through rental properties and investments.
  • ​Brandon (“the Mad Fientist”), a software developer, left his cubicle at the age of 34 after saving and investing 70% of his after-tax income.
  • Michelle, blogger of Making Sense of Cents, got started on the path to financial freedom in her early 20s by working long hours to pay off her debt in 7 months.

Now let’s be clear. Most people who “retire” from the traditional workforce at a young age don’t just stop working. Some create their own businesses, manage rental properties, continue to work in their chosen profession, or volunteer at their favorite organizations. Others travel the world, dabble in writing or art, or become master gardeners. The point is: Their assets and lifestyles have bought them FREEDOM. And yes, it takes good health and a bit of luck to join this elite club, but if they can do it, SO CAN YOU!
