My name is Jay and I am currently
27 28 29 30 31 32 years old YOUNG! I graduated school w/ an engineering degree and started working at 23. I started investing in a Roth IRA during my senior year of undergrad (thanks to sound advice from my older brother), and have been fully funding that, in addition to a 401k. I have recently started dividend investing (as of January 2012), and will be sharing my journey on this blog. I still work in the engineering/high-tech industry. I enjoy the work for the most part, but some days are better than others 😉 Though I most definitely enjoy being able to mentor younger engineers. I will make it a priority to keep volunteering/mentoring after I exit the workforce. More than anything, my goal in life is to become a more complete individual. A true renaissance man, if possible. Time is precious, and I want to make the most of my time here.
With that said, I do not enjoy working for other people. I do not enjoy weekly status reports, meetings, conference calls (luckily no TPS reports). My goal is to become fully financially independent at
37.5 33 30 31 (DONE!). This day will arrive when my passive income and semi-passive income streams bring in more each month than I need to pay bills.
Let the journey
