Those who discovered the idea of Financial Independence in their late teens and early twenties are able to accumulate wealth and retire early in their thirties, if they so choose. Wouldn’t pursuing ventures you are passionate about, without the necessity to generate working income in your thirty somethings, be the ideal lifestyle? This will take enormous dedication and following the advice in our letters to build income producing assets while remaining quite frugal. The less extreme will manage families, build a business or side hustle, work up the corporate ladder, and accumulate wealth a little more modestly. This accumulation phase can be boring, but also exciting as you finally start to see how your efforts compound over time. Let our parents show you how to best position your investments in preparation for living off the income early and how to avoid lifestyle inflation that can lead to working the typical 40 year career.
