So this week was the week of my birthday. I turned 26. Turning 26 is a point in my life where I have to think about my future. Now that I’m officially closing in on 30, as Girlfriend would like to say, the goals I have in life are getting closer.
My big financial goal is to fire my boss when I turn 40. Retiring at 40 means I have 14 years left. 14 years is a short amount of time to acquire the funds I need to retire on. So maybe I have to revisit my goals and look at retiring by 50.
Even if I miss retiring at 40 I will still come out ahead. Most people from my age I looking at the retirement when they are 72. If I can retire between 40 and 50, I will be super young compared to my peers.
