The Advantages of Retiring Early

  • College degree, no student debt.
  • Partner to share expenses.
  • No children or relatives to care for.
  • Access to health care.
  • Choice of where to live.
  • But all of this comes at a price.

One example is the case of Taybeepboop, a 28-year-old post-production freelancer who paid off her college debt in under a year and eventually saved enough to buy a home. Her financial advisor encouraged her to share her financial story on TikTok, but it came at a high price.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
