New Here?

Welcome to!

This site is the personal story of Pretired Nick and his long journey to financial independence. Because terms like “early retirement” have so many different meanings, around here we use the term “pretirement” to describe the era of life after a full working career but before traditional retirement. This period of time could be just a few years or it might be 30 years or more.

If it’s your first visit here, you might want to read up on past articles. To see everything so far, just go here.

Before you read on, though, like the site on Facebook and follow along on Twitter. All new articles are announced there, but each site has its own unique content as well.

Please explore the site, comment on articles you think are interesting and be sure to sign up for the RSS feed. And of course, be sure also to visit the Blogroll page for further readings on reaching pretirement!

Thanks for visiting! Hope to hear from you more soon!
