“Teaching was one of our lives. We loved it, but we also love our new one of travel and kids. And I’m excited to see what other lives we may live. Financial independence gives us the ability to take the risks to explore these lives. Despite loving our jobs, we quit, and couldn’t be happier.”

“Financial freedom means that you are not bound to one thing to bring home the “bacon”. Also, it means we don’t have to be bound to an office for most of our adult life. It’s about getting out there and enjoying your time on earth.”
“Considering early retirement probably doesn’t mean you don’t want to work any more – it means you don’t want to work at your current job.”
