How to retire young. I think it’s a dream everyone has. How to retire young AND retire rich. Well now you’re talking.
I think it’d be better put, however, if we changed it to “how to fire your boss while you’re still young”. Because if you’re currently working for anyone other than yourself for 40-50 hours per week, then you already know you could be doing life much, much better.
The dream of how to retire early or how to retire at 40 isn’t so much about not working at all, it’s really about not working for someone else. On top of that, how many of us are guilty of putting off until retirement things we should be enjoying today?
In this article I’m going to show you why you need to stop putting off your dreams and give yourself the opportunity to start living NOW by working for yourself. If you’re interested in beating the retirement myth, firing your boss, and thinking like an entrepreneur, this article is going to be an eye opener for you.
How to Retire Young and Retire Rich
Why do we all buy into the idea that we should work 40 years of our life for someone else? Why do we accept working that long for someone else only to make 40% less in retirement? It’s time to start thinking like the New Rich.
Too many people romanticize this idea that they’ll finally follow their passion once they retire. We have dreams of cross country road trips, sailing, traveling… But the numbers just don’t add up. Take a look at these stats and think about the volumes they speak for the average career lifespan:
- Average age to get first job in U.S.: 19
- Average age to retire in U.S.: 63
- Annual income while working in U.S.: $51,939
- Annual income in retirement in U.S.: $31,742
Can you live out your retirement dreams on $31,724/yr.? Further, how are you supposed to survive on 60%?
Working all your life for someone else is a failing business model.
