Carl had no idea that anyone retired before the age of 65, but after a particularly bad day at work in October 2012, he asked himself, “How do I retire early?” Combining childhood saving habits with financial savvy, Carl was able to leave his job in 2017, retiring at the age of 43, and never looked back.
