In my last couple of posts I talked about making the difficult decision to quit and then following through with my Freedom 40 Plan and actually quitting. Then, I talked about my experience telling others about my unconventional path of leaving a perfectly good job to go and do who knows what. Now, I’ll share […] ...

Things continue to be good here. Despite quitting, I’m actually still working for a little while, and while a little different than the original plan, it’s OK. The S&P was up about 2 % for the month of April and our total net worth increased by nearly the same amount. Funny how that seems to work…. […] ...

In last two posts I talked first about making the difficult decision to quit, and then about following through with that decision. In this post, I’ll share some of my story about telling others. Before I get too far into this, it may be important to note that despite sharing so much here on this […] ...

Well – I finally did it! I’m not sure if I really ever believed I would go through with it, but I did. I quit my perfectly good, high paying, benefit laden, job at just 40 years of age. Six months after my daughter was born. Am I crazy? Maybe? Maybe not… I had a […] ...

Things continue here at Freedom 40 land. March was an interesting month. Why' Well, first we continued to try to figure out managing our time and various responsibilities as new parents. Then, my Dad ended up in the hospital for nearly half the month. And finally, I quit work. But then they asked if I’d […] ...

It’s been a long time since I’ve written anything here. I wish that wasn’t the case, but alas, I’m just not as prolific and serious a blogger as many out there. Maybe someday I will be, but right now my priorities are simply on other things. Such as trying to be a good Dad to […] ...

Happy New Year! 2017 is over, and what a year it was. From a financial perspective, this was our best year ever. Our net worth climbed a mind boggling $353,092 or nearly 28% over the 12 month period. We had a gain of over $10k in each and every month of the year. It’s easy to […] ...

Whatever you do – Don’t take investment advice from the “investment pro” in your office. The markets just keep going up and up and up. Now that the GOP congress has a new Tax Bill that just passed, I’m betting on further tailwinds for this long market. Wall street executives and the companies they run […] ...
