“Purple” started writing to document her journey towards the life she desired.

- The unusual way she got introduced to the Financial Independence movement
- What she did when her dream job didn’t work out
- Why she finally decided to make her private writings a public blog after three years
- The difficult choice between being honest with her identity or with her finances
In 2015 Purple started her blog and hatched a plan to retire in ten years at 35. With the help of decreased spending, increased wages, and geo-arbitrage she’s on track to reach her goal in half the time and retire in September 2020 at age 30. Her blog catalogs her journey to and through early retirement.
