I am Matt from NY.
Tough and stressful in Queens , NY – between the time we spend commuting, working, etc. and things we have to do each and every day of our life, most people don`t have but 1 or 2 hrs a day to themselves.
Great to hear from you!
Your description of life in NY with a full work schedule is exactly what motivated us to save our money, invest wisely, cut our expenses and retire early. We had every creature comfort but we were starving for time to ourselves.
We encourage you to reassess your current situation and look to where you want to go in your future. We believe that if we can do it, anyone can.
Take a look at our Retirement Issues Page as well as our Digital Book Store. Both our books, The Adventurer’s Guide to Early Retirement, A Common Sense Approach and Your Retirement Dream IS Possible will help you get your life on track for retirement. We give lots of good tools for you to use including a downloadable spreadsheet for tracking your expenses.
We wish you the very best now and in the future.
Feel free to write any time.
