Some people think that early retirement in your 30’s or 40’s is achievable.

Even in your 20’s, it can be done with extreme discipline.

But with a kid? It seems difficult.

And if you have more than one? It seems impossible.


When you do research, you realize there are parents who are able to do this.

They’re living frugally, but not sacrificing their kids’ future.

It is my goal to uncover and share these tips to help parents find the quickest way to reach financial freedom. So you no longer have to work for money.

I was raised by parents who instilled this belief of pursuing a traditional career.

I started in customer service at a local retail shop and I currently work in strategy for a global firm.

I want to be there for her. See her grow and try new things. Guide her through her mistakes and challenges.

I need to find a way to be a stay-at-home mom.
