I’m a 46-year-old Dad and investor based in the Washington, DC area. My plan is to retire at age 55 (or earlier), one year before my Dad retired.
To reach this goal, I invest in index funds and individual stocks in retirement accounts. I’m building multiple income streams to fund my early retirement though real estate crowdfunding, stock dividends, and side business income via this blog.
My first love is my beautiful wife and three kids. My second love is travel. Combining both in early retirement is the ultimate goal and my primary motivation for financial independence.
