What is This Site About?

Retire By 45 provides inspiration, tips, and resources for retiring early.  My wife, Allison, and I retired in our early 40s and have never looked back. We want to share our learnings to help you retire early, too.
Our lives have improved tremendously through early retirement.  We're in better physical shape, we're no longer stressed about work, and we have more time to travel and enjoy life. 
Sure, it takes some discipline to retire in your 40s. But it's very doable if you put your mind to it and follow some key strategies. If we can do it, then we know you can do it, too!
