MinDrench: The Nuts and Bolts of Financial Independence and Early Retirement

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. Some great articles from many of my favorite bloggers! I’m honored to be included!

    Enjoy your independence, and thanks for the feature 🙂

    • You’re welcome. You have an awesome story. Just like you, when we first planned the goal we thought it would take us much longer, at least until the beginning of 2020 to reach it. But as we went along we continued to minimize our expenses and shorten the timeline since we won’t need as much as we originally thought in retirement.

  2. Happy to have my story featured here at Enchumbao. Thanks, you two!

    Great to read these financial independence stories. It inspires me to act early and improve my financial status. I’d like to retire early too, but I am not sure yet if I will be able to very soon. I would also like to secure my future healthcare needs. Though there are Medicare, Medicare supplements plan available; I would like to ensure that I will be able to withstand my out-of-pocket health care needs. Cheers to you and more power in inspiring others! 🙂

      Yes, health care needs is a big worry in the retirement community. You have a nice article that points out how important it is to stay healthy to reduce cost. That’s what we try to do: eat healthy, stay active physically and mentally, be happy, reduce stress. All these steps helps reduce health insurance costs. ?

      We’re glad you find inspiration from these FI stories. Thanks for commenting.
