On January 21, 2023, at a regional TedX event, I discussed the simple and repeatable steps we took to enable our early retirement.

That short speech is now live on the TedX Talks YouTube channel, linked below for easy viewing.

If you enjoy it, please share and like/comment on the YouTube channel.

Reimagine Retirement | Jeremy Jacobson | TedXFolsom

This speech was the result of months of planning and tuning, and based on years of thinking and living. Some of my favorite bits:

“We did nothing more than live like college students for a few years longer than is socially acceptable.”

“Retirement is what enables people to pursue their passions, completely independent of the need to earn a living and best done with the health and energy of youth.”

“If you are willing to live a slightly less affluent lifestyle for a short period of time, you can reduce your working years by 20 / 30 / 40 years.”

“This is not your grandparents’ retirement.”

Do you have a favorite part?

Thank you for reading, watching, and sharing!
