Today I am financially independent, I run a cool little company (PopUp Business School) with a team of 12, changing the way entrepreneurship is taught globally and I spend my time travelling around the world working with some of the coolest people. Life wasn't always this way! At school I was the shyest kid you could meet, I struggled talking to strangers, I was paralysed by fear approaching girls, making phone calls or anything else. My family went from wealthy to £millions in debt and we had to do car boot sales (yard sales) at the weekend to raise the money to buy food. So what changed? This is what I want to share with you and it is going to be in 3 main parts: entrepreneurship, financial independence, and making dreams come true.

We are Todd and Wendy Christensen (aka 50+ and 50-), an average couple on an extraordinary journey from mediocre finances to Financial Independence to Retire Early (FI/RE). As a couple, we don’t want to retire on Social Security and a limited IRA. We have committed to eliminating ALL our debt by our late 50s and early 60s while building passive income streams that will permit us to pursue a meaningful life outside the 8-5 workday.

Hello everyone, my name is Jared. There is a lot of emphasis online about retired at 30! Well I’m 31, and not retired. In fact, my goal has always been to have the option to retire by 45 from the time I started working. I have a wife, and two young boys. I know I am not going to retire in my early 30’s because I have a family to raise and bills to pay, but my goal of 45 is still in sight. This blog is to document my journey to finding financial independence while having dependents and offering tips and interesting ideas to you. I started with nothing, and have been working since I was 12. My first job was working teaching kids how to swim at the local swim club, from there I moved on to working in fast food, busing tables at a nice Italian restaurant, and eventually working as an apprentice electrician. I acquired my Journeyman Electrical License at the age of 22. Most recently I work in Construction Management overseeing the daily construction of various project types.

Hi there! glad to have you on my blog. I am a big fan of personal finance and I am looking forward to sharing everything I know as well as point you to a plethora of resources available at your disposal. Now, a little bit about me. I was born in Maracaibo, Venezuela in 1980 and I think that makes me a border line millennial with some behaviors from Generation X. I was raised by frugal parents who taught me the value of hard work and saving for the future.I truly believe my journey to FI started with the lessons my parents taught me when I was a kid. I can still remember my dad saying .. “son, when things are going great that is when you should be saving the most because you don’t know when things are going to go bad“. In the context of FI, I can say this has been one of the most important lessons in my life so thanks Dad! The journey continues but now I plan to bring others on my quest for achieving Financial Independence.
