Have you ever dreamt of a work optional life?

I love reading books on personal finance. I have read quite a few and always take out multiple books from the local library any time I go.

In Work Optional by author Tanja Hester, it takes a slightly different approach to other personal finance and investment books I have read. Most books focus on the how-to of getting to your financial goals. In this book, the author helps the reader visualize their life once they reach their goal. She focuses on the reasons why they are pursuing the path toward early retirement.

3 Key Sections
