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!
