Hi there!  I’m Jim – nice to meet you!

Jim, Lisa, and Faith
Lisa, Faith, and I living the dream at a beach in Panama…

Through saving hard and investing smartly, I was able to retire at the age of 43 at the end of 2018.  Yay!

Now, I have more time to spend with my lovely wife, Lisa, and my rocking daughter, Faith.  In 2019, we moved to Boquete, Panama for a new adventure. It was an amazing experience for all of us and one we will never forget but we moved back to the U.S. in 2022 to be closer to family… for now! 😉

In the meantime, I have more time to focus on fun projects like my Route to Retire blog where I share a lot of information on how we were able to retire at a younger age.

This site is a place I’m calling home.  It’s also the spot where I’ll discuss some of the new projects I’m working on.
