How would you like to retire at the age of 35?  Sounds impossible, right? Well, our guest today, Steve Adcock, figured out how to do it.

Think. Save. Retire.

Steve and his wife Courtney have had a dream of early retirement for quite some time now.  Together, they have been tirelessly planning, diligently saving and constantly dreaming of leaving their 9-5 careers behind and exploring the country.  

In December, Steve handed over his ID badge and a resignation letter and stepped into his first month as an early retiree.   

Steve now has the freedom to pursue projects he is passionate about like writing, consulting and photography.  He’ll never fill out another timesheet.  He'll never have another performance review … EVER AGAIN.

On the show today, I ask Steve:

  • What does early retirement mean to you?
  • How were you able to retire at 35?
  • What is your life like now that you've retired?
  • What advice do you have so others can achieve early retirement like you?

If you have an interest in early retirement or simply want to know how you can set yourself up for success with your finances, you will definitely enjoy this episode.  

Personally, I've been inspired by my conversation with Steve to take a hard look at my family's monthly budget and see how we can increase our savings and reduce our unnecessary expenses … Because early retirement sounds right up my alley!

There will be some helpful resources mentioned during the show that you can access in the Show Notes below.

Enjoy this inspiring conversation with Steve Adcock everyone!

    • Hi Wes! I do not have a transcript but if go to my blue podcast player above, you can download the whole episode. Transcriptions would be a great idea. I wonder if there is an inexpensive and user friendly service out there that does that? Know any?
