From the vanguard of the FIRE (Financial Independence, Retire Early) movement, a bold, contrarian guide to retiring at any age, with a reproducible formula to financial independence—no gimmick, luck, or trust fund required. Quit Like a Millionaire is a bull***t-free guide to growing your wealth, retiring early, and living the life you've always dreamed of. As The New York Times recently noted, FIRE is "a growing movement of young professionals who are intently focused on quitting their jobs forever." Kristy Shen retired with a million dollars at the age of thirty-one, and she did it without hitting a home run on the stock market, starting the next Snapchat in her garage, or investing in hot real estate. In Quit Like a Millionaire, learn how to cut down on spending without decreasing your quality of life, build a million-dollar portfolio, fortify your investments to survive bear markets and black-swan events, and use the 4 percent rule and the Yield Shield—so you can quit the rat race forever. It may sound complicated, but Shen is here to tell us that if she did it, anyone can. Not everyone can become an entrepreneur or a real estate baron; the rest of us need her mathematically proven approach to retire decades before sixty-five. Shen is not your typical investment guru. She grew up in abject poverty in rural China, worked for a decade as a middle-class immigrant professional in Canada, and now travels the world as a retired millionaire. In short, she really walks the walk, and here she shares the mindsets she developed at each income level that launched her to the next.
