Hi. My name is Marc. Welcome to my personal journey to financial freedom and early retirement!
Most people dream of a time when they can quit their day job and pursue what they truly love. Yet, when you ask young(er) people about retirement, they tune out, equating “retirement” with “walkers and canes”. Retirement is not about being old. It’s about no longer being dependent upon your time and labor for money. Retirement is financial freedom. Some people are able to retire in their 30s, 40s or 50s. The truth is, if you’re determined and start early enough, retirement can happen sooner than you think.

I recently turned 50. Not that young anymore and a late starter as far as ‘retirement planning’ is concerned, but I believe it is realistic to retire before i actually hit the big 6-0. Where I live, the current retirement age is 68, but I am not going to wait and hope it is still 68 if I am lucky enough to get there.
On these pages I will take you with me on my personal journey towards early retirement. It is not going to be an “easy 10-step program with guaranteed success and buy my book” kind of thing. I will be fully transparent. Show you my good decisions, but also the bad. If you follow me (you can subscribe at the bottom of this page), you will hopefully get some inspiration for your own personal journey.
