Hi, I’m Tina. I’m a 35 year-old transplant from the Midwest currently living in sunny (and sometimes crazy) Las Vegas with my 37 year-old husband. I want to establish a community for anyone who wants to be financially free. That means reaching a point where you work because you want to, not because you have to.
Do you think that early retirement is only possible for those in their 20s? Think again. Through smart planning and financial savvy, you can pursue financial independence no matter what stage you are in life.
I finished grad school in 2009. As many of you recall, the nation was in the midst of a recession during that time. I was in major freak out mode until I finally found a job 5 months later.
Fast forward to our move to Vegas. I took a leap of faith and decided we would move even though I hadn’t secured full-time employment. I then spent the next two years being under-employed. Throughout all that, I still managed to pay off my student loans, save for a down payment, and put money away for retirement.
Saving money doesn’t have to be painful. You can save for the future while enjoying the present. Those goals do not have to be mutually exclusive. Join me and let me show you how to save more and live more.
