How to Retire at 33

Today I’m excited to have Justin on the show who actually retired at the age of 33!

This is a huge 2 part interview where we talk about everything from how he was able to retire at 33, to what he invests in, and we even cover other subjects like how to save money on vacations and how he manages his money so that he never has to work again.

Lastly, Justin gives us some great tips that you can start applying today to retire early.

    • What was your asset allocation like before retirement and after retirement?
