I am. (Well my wife and I)
Our short back story:
We aren't wealthy by any means. But, my wife and I were having a discussion and ultimately came to the conclusion that we both are on the same page with respect to not working until the US recommended retirement age of [65-67]. We are in the mindset that It doesn't make sense to potentially waste prime years of our lives working in hopes of enjoying retirement without the assurance we will have the necessary [health or wants]. We prefer to live off less and live as much as we can with what ever we got.
With that said, we have started to make minor moves (taking action & planning) to build some wealth / passive income that will subsidize our current 403(b) and Pension in our later years. We aren't thinking we will make it to the millionaires club but we will try. Anything close to the 1M will be acceptable. We have approximately (10-12) years to hit any goals we set.
Below is our list of goals that will guide us to the path to our million.
1-Emergency Fund (done)
2-Invest in ETFs/Stocks (started this month)
3-Buy At least (1) rental property. (in the learning, educating and planning stages)
4-Focus on Growing my small business. (company is live, but needs more attention)
5-Write a Short-Stories series. (future plans-no date determined yet)
That's it. My mind has been recently cluttered so I have to slow down and figuring out what I should be focusing on now/next. At the end of it all, I am enjoying the process and the potential financial freedom I am striving for.
If you got this far in the reading, I thank you for your tenacity and your time.
Good luck on your personal journey.
