I work for a large investment management company helping people save for traditional retirement. During my spare time I help others save for financial independence and early retirement by writing for Enchumbao. My journey to FI began in 2012.

  1. Choosing the right parter is really #1 in my opinion. I married at 21 to a frugal guy, and that alone has set us up to be in a really good spot as we enter our 30s in a few months.

    • I have to agree with you 100% on this one. As Mrs. Enchumbao was editing this article she pointed this one out and I added it at the end. How could I have forgotten this one?!?
      So yes, if you marry the right person you’ll set yourself up for financial success. Thanks for reading!
