The 34-year-old retired at 30 after building up a $1.25 million net worth, in just five years.
So just what is life like as an early retiree with no job to report to?
As the author of both a book (“Financial Freedom”) and a blog (Millennial Money), Sabatier is busy. He may have retired from the 9-to-5 life, but he still makes time for work, whether it’s promoting his book or running his website.
But he also has free time to enjoy the simple things, like an early-morning yoga class or a leisurely walk with his dog. Sabatier also spends time hanging out with friends in the FIRE (financial independence, retire early) community.
“One of the best parts about being financially independent is that there really is no ‘typical’ day in my life, and I like it that way,” Sabatier said. “I don’t do well with routines — never have. I’m like the anti-habit stacker.”
Here’s what a typical day looks like for Sabatier when he’s at home in New York City.
