Retirement Isn’t What You Think

Some people don’t realize the gravity of this opportunity. This is the greatest offering, the greatest promise of a free society. The ability to achieve complete, or near to complete, freedom of action.

For some people, even if they aren’t doing something they necessarily love if they get to choose their own schedule and vacation days, that’s freedom enough.

Better yet, if you’re able to invest some money while you’re doing this, you’re checking all the boxes of freedom now and setting yourself up for more freedom in the future.

Retirement should be synonymous with reaching the American Dream, it should be synonymous with living your best life. The end goal of life isn’t just to save up a bunch of money and do work, whatever it is, until you’re too old to do anything.
