Today, I have a guest post featured on Duke of Dollars. Below is a snippet, but please click on over to read the whole post.
If you reflected on the very moment you’re writing this post today, tell us your story – how did you get you get where you are?
I still remember having dinner at my Grandma’s house one evening when I was five years old. There, my Grandma asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I proudly told her that I wanted to be a toll booth collector because I thought that I would be able to keep all the quarters. Everyone around the table got a good laugh at that. Clearly, I knew from an early age that I wanted to make money.
Growing up, I didn’t really need to spend any money to have fun. I was content playing outside with my neighborhood buddies, and all of my other needs were taken care of by my kind parents. Because of this, I’ve always been an exceptional saver. That has basically transpired through to where I am in life today.
I don’t have too many vices. I’m not really into cars, fancy food, or even expensive vacations. Reading a book from the library brings me just as much joy.
Today, I save 65% of my take home pay, as my wife and I sprint towards FIRE.
When did you have an epiphany moment to get in gear towards building a financial kingdom for yourself and your family?
