It’s been a half a year since we first started down the path towards our goal of early retirement. While our goal of retiring in 2027 may still be a stretch, I’m more optimistic than ever. We have enjoyed great success thus far in growing our net worth, while having fun along the way.
There are still many years and major events between now and the possibility of early retirement. We would like to purchase a house and have kids in the next few years, both of which will impact our goal. We hope to offset these costs by increasing our earning potential and investing more each year. Oh, and it would be great if the housing market turns around and we can sell our condo in a few years for a profit.
Maybe I should say that we’re cautiously optimistic.
