Freedom 35 Here We Come!

Japan

 

This is where most of the funds from our garage sale finds & 9-5 jobs will end up! We will be updating this portion of the website with stock transactions and information on our most recent investments! Please feel free to look around the website, comment, engage, and share. One of our goals is to become financially independent by the ripe old age of 35. By financially independent we mean supporting ourselves without having to work for other people. We hope to achieve this through a combination of dividend paying stocks, garage sale finds that we sell on eBay and Amazon, and any other side hustle that might present itself along the way.  We are excited to get this dividend snowball rolling and look to motivate others and be motivated along the way!
