August 2016 Freedom Fund Update: 6.3% in Market Gains

Mr. Enchumbao

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. I was in a lot of debt back then but I turned things around and became debt free a few years later. My wife and I reached financial independence in 2017 and are preparing to retire by 2020.

  1. Wow! This is awesome! Congrats on reaching another milestone! It’s so motivating to follow graphs of your progress, isn’t it?
    I also love that you guys explained how you will convert your non-retirement assets. That was a question we struggled to find an answer to in this world of very late retirements. As a result we did what you are doing now- built up the non-retirement fund to avoid early penalties and fees, because who likes those, right?
    Great work and keep it up!

    • Hi! Thank you. It sure is motivating and I like that the blog provides me with a reason to track the progress via different charts. Yes, we gotta do our best to avoid those fees!!! It’s amazing how little people know about the loop holes available. I found out about it a few years ago as well. Thanks for dropping by!
