A practical action guide for financial independence and early retirement from the popular "Our Next Life" blogger.
In today's work culture, we're expected to hustle around the clock. But what if you could escape the traditional path and get on one that doesn't require working full-time until age 65? What if you could wake up every day without an alarm clock and do the things you love most?
Tanja Hester and her husband Mark left their crazed careerist lifestyle to live their dream life in Lake Tahoe, retiring early from high-stress careers. Now Tanja will help you map out a customized plan for freedom and make it easy to succeed, whether you're good at math and budgeting - or not! Work Optional is more than just a financial plan: it's a plan for your whole life-designed by you, not by an employer or clients. Tanja walks you through envisioning your dream life, accounting for variables such as health care and children, protecting yourself from recessions and future unknowns, and achieving a purpose-filled early retirement, semi-retirement, or career intermission with completely doable, non-penny-pinching steps.
You can live a happier, more meaningful life, free from the daily grind. Regardless of where you are in your career, Work Optional will get you there.

"This isn't just a book about how to retire early. It's a book that proves it's possible to be mindful with your spending, and create a life that aligns with your values and passions - and work can play whatever role you want it to." (Cait Flanders, best-selling author of The Year of Less)
"Hester's story is relatable, refreshing, and a pleasure to read. All too often we chase external measures of success without thinking about what we truly want from life. In Work Optional, Hester gives us a roadmap for a less traveled path: living a more purpose-driven life through financial independence." (Kristin Wong, author of Get Money: Live the Life You Want, Not Just the Life You Can Afford)
"Ms. Hester get[s] you to think about how you might retire early, forc[ing] you to ponder how you could cut current spending and increase your income, savings and the rates they earn." (The New York Times)

This has it all.
A very dense look at early retirement. You can tell she is walking the talk. Loads of info. Daunting really.
If you are serious about early retirement then this is a book you can't listen to while you're working out or driving. You need to sit down with it and take copius notes as, like I mentioned, this is a beast of dense material.
Great work. I will continue to refer to this book many times now and in my planning.

get the paperback
great concept but too many calculations and they're not all in the PDF, so hard to calculate things as she's talking. also, I'm Canadian, so at least 60% of the content doesn't apply to me.
