Purpose & Objectives

When we retired in 2010, we were frequently asked: “How’d you do that”? People were genuinely curious about how we prepared for retirement, our decision to retire and how we planned to live life in retirement. Instead of continuing to tell and retell our story, we decided to share it online with everyone. That is our only motive. We are not profit driven. To learn more about who we are, click Meet Us.
