I was lucky to become Financially Independent and Retired Early because it wasn’t really my plan. It helped that (a) I am tight (b) I discovered The Motley Fool and started to manage my money 20 years ago (c) I am very tight. I attained the goal of Retiring Early when I was made redundant. It struck me that I had Financial, Independence and Early nailed down but I hadn’t thought through Retirement. My blog is an attempt to work that through!
I’m a Dutch guy in my mid-thirties using the alias Mr. Robot. I live together with my wife and small kid in a nice house in the southern part of The Netherlands. By day I’m active in the IT-industry by evening/night I’m aspiring to be a finance ninja with a goal of full early retirement at 55.
