The reason I started my Early Working Retirement is because I came to the realization that I'll be working some kind of a job just so I can pay the monthly bills… every month for the rest of my life, so I started early.
That doesn't mean that I'm not enthusiastic about life, it means that I've come to terms with my inability to accumulate wealth and I've decided to enjoy my enthusiasms in the moment. I identify first as a son, a husband and a dad, second as an athlete and thirdly as a teacher. My third enthusiasm pays me almost enough to keep the first two enthusiasms going strong. I have so much fun with my family and my sport, plus I have my job as a teacher at a major computing company which is how I pay the bills.
My wife, son and I eat dinner together almost everyday, and I've been playing footbag freestyle everyday since I turned 40 which is 2531 in a row today. I work 5 days a week, plus whatever consulting, graphic design or videography projects I might have going. In an effort to get more consulting clients and graphic design projects, I launched this website.
In order to stand out, I'm printing up some Business Cards in the style of sports trading cards. Here is an idea of what the front and back of the new cards will look like.
