Today has been a long time coming…
When we started this podcast Justin’s, net worth was less than $300k.
His goal was to retire in 2034.
Fast forward 5 years and he’s blown past those metrics and goals.
Justin had planned on retiring in June of 2024, once his restricted stock matured.
Due to an acquisition of his company, which led to a layoff, that timeline was accelerated.
It’s all good news though!
He still gets his pay and his stock and gets to retire that much sooner.
Justin had already been Financially Independent, but now he gets to tack on the RE to the FIRE acronym.
So yep… It looks like at age 33 and just over $1.5M, Justin is RETIRED!!!
What will retirement look like?
Well, if you know Justin, you know he’s extremely transparent.
So he’ll be documenting exactly what he does every day for his 150 days of severance to give everyone a peek behind the curtain.
In this episode, we cover:
- Negotiating severance (or not)
- The do’s and don’ts of layoffs
- RSUs and vested company stock
- The WARN act
- What to do with your 401K
- Justin’s future
- and so much more
