Today I had the honor of meeting one of my heroes: Joe Udo from Retireby40.org and of course Baby RB40 (not really a baby anymore). Joe was up on a weekend trip from Portland and was gracious enough to offer to get together. We met up at a park in Seattle to introduce ourselves in person and for me to squeal with glee as I met the person most influential to me in deciding to begin writing about my own pretirement journey.
Joe was writing about his plans to leave his soul-sucking day job just as I was contemplating my own escape from my own soul-sucking day job. I coincidentally ended up leaving my job just a few months before he did. Now we are both enjoying our lives as stay-at-home dads.
If you haven’t already checked out Retireby40, go there RIGHT NOW and fill yourself with the inspiration to leave your own day job and get started with your pretirement!
