Episode 905: Why Most Retirement Calculators Don't Work by Darrow Kirkpatrick of Can I Retire Yet on Planning to Retire
Darrow Kirkpatrick is the founder of CanIRetireYet.com. He began serious investing in his mid-30s and retired at age 50. He's not a dot com millionaire and didn't become financially independent by flipping real estate or trading hot stocks. He did it the traditional way: hard work, frugality, prudent investing, and patience.
When it comes to personal finance, his top priorities are simplicity, reliability, and safety. Now his mission is to help others become financially independent as he did.
More recently, Chris Mamula has been managing the blog and he's a frequent writer on the site. Chris used principles of traditional retirement planning, combined with creative lifestyle design, to retire from a career as a physical therapist at age 41. After poor experiences with the financial industry early in his professional life, he educated himself on investing and tax planning. Now he draws on his experience to write about wealth building, DIY investing, financial planning, early retirement, and lifestyle design.
