Time for a quick reintroduction post!
It has been a minute since I have given an update for all the new followers to the account. Here we go.
My name is Travis, I am 28 years old, and I am the man behind the account @theyoungretireeby33
I started this account a little over a year and a half ago for the original purpose of holding myself accountable and documenting my journey to reach financial independence.
My original content was focused around three things. Money. Mindset. Mission. I started following the financial independence community and it was amazing to see what everyone was doing and the information they were sharing to help others. I wanted to share my story and thought if I could help at least one person then it would be worth my time.
It has been a long journey since the beginning. I have gone from my first ever home purchase (house hack of course) to now owning a profitable short term rental business that is on track to do roughly $250k in gross revenue this year.
What is my mission? To reach financial independence so I can spend my time doing what I want to do, when I want to do it, and with whomever.
How do I plan to hit financial independence? Real estate and stock investment (dollar cost averaging). For real estate, mainly short term rentals and house hacking.
How close am I to financial independence? I could technically quit my W2 today if I wanted to, but it is the main thing fueling the fire to continue purchasing more real estate.
In my free time I am an avid golfer and love to travel. I love looking at problems and figuring out how to solve them with the least amount of effort. Part of my industrial engineering background by trade I guess.
Welcome to my page and I look forward to doing my best to add value for you!
