The first time I 'retired' was in 1992. I had completed 20 years in the institutional research and trading and investment seminar business. It was time to retire and move on from those arenas. I wanted to concentrate on the booming individual investment newsletter business and on my family investment management company, Richard C. Young & Co., Ltd. So I took my business suits to Goodwill and retired from working with clients, the media and Wall Street in general. The very next year, in the fall of 1993, Money magazine rated Young's Intelligence Report an 'A', as the best of America's big-five investment newsletters.

I became financially independent and retired at age 50 in 2011. My story has been featured in USAA Magazine and on Yahoo Finance. I credit Dick as my investing mentor both on my blog here: www.caniretireyet.com/how-i-retired-early/ and in my new book "Retiring Sooner," available on Amazon.
[What I like best are] the consistent reminders of conservative investing fundamentals. As I say in my book, "I owe an enormous debt to Richard C. Young and his Intelligence Report, which was my mentor in patient, diversified, low-cost passive index investing." Thank you again Dick!
