I don’t know about you, but when I was younger and used to think about money, I assumed it was just math, dollars and cents. All you had to do was understand how simple math worked, make a bunch of money, save it all and invest. You are good to go! As it turns out, this was only part of the equation. Without a doubt, having the knowledge around the math of early retirement is a must, but just as an important is understanding the physiological components of money, and your life when you no longer “earn” money. In the final article in Level 1 – The Basics, I’ll explore what your life in retirement might look like and discuss some things to ponder before you pull the plug. Prior to moving to early retirement, be sure to do some self-reflection on your emotions, relationships, and what you plan to do with your time.
