I'm Justin and I graduated college back in 2012 and shortly after starting work as an engineer for a specialty chemicals company, I realized that work really is not for me. I would rather ride my bike and be free to do what I want, when I want, where I want.
Leave the rat race, gain freedom, retire early!
This is when I started perusing the all-knowing internet and came across financial independence for the first time. It struck a chord with me and I immediately decided that I would shoot for retiring by 50. Fast forward 5 years, I am married and now living in China on an expat assignment, the goal has changed.
I started Atypical Life on January 1 this year to share more information on the financial independence movement and to chronicle my progress on getting there. The most popular financial independence writers all started after they were retired or super close to FI, so I decided to start one earlier on the journey.
We all want to be free from work, whether it is because we do not want to work for the man or because we want to have the freedom to set our schedule as we see fit. Money is the answer to freedom, hopefully we can all help each other out and become free from our money concerns.
I look forward to participating here with all the cool, in the know, peeps.
