You don’t have to earn a high salary to retire well.
You don’t have to work at a job you hate for 35 years.
You don’t have to follow the traditional path.
I’ve made an average annual salary of $27,000.
I’ve worked at 35 different jobs.
I followed my own path.
When I retire, I’ll have saved a million dollars.
Become a Rebel Millionaire and get rich on your own terms.
I did it. You can too.
That’s my new book, REBEL MILLIONAIRE: Get Rich on Your Own Terms, in a nutshell. I’m excited to share it with you, even in the midst of these crazy times we’ve living in.
Here’s how it all started.
Last year, when I looked up my salaries for the past 30 years for my post, Top 10 Things I Did Right with My Money, I discovered my average annual salary was just $27,000. I was shocked but not surprised (I mean, I’ve had many lean earning years). What was more shocking was discovering that I’m well on my way to becoming a millionaire when I retire.
A millionaire? WTF?!
Yep, I was thinking that too.
After my blog post came out, I heard from two moms who told me they were going to pass my post on to their twenty-something kids, and then I heard from a twenty-something who decided to open a retirement account for her 26th birthday because of what she read in my post. It thrilled me to receive those kudos, and it was the nudge I needed to expand my post into a book.
Still, it wasn’t easy to write about my money experiences. I’m a private person when it comes to stuff like that. But as I wrote my book (and drew illustrations for it), I kept reminding myself that this story–my story–could help other people who were also making a modest income. It could also help people who were trying to choose between a job they want to do, and one that’s more lucrative but isn’t what they want to do.
I’m a prime example that you CAN make a modest income, you CAN follow your own path to fulfillment, and you CAN build a fortune over time.
What got me through those challenging writing periods was realizing that my story needed to be told. And I was the only one who could do it.
So, if you’re reading this and thinking, “Wow, Peg’s saving a mill’? Maybe I can do it too?” I want you to know that yes, you CAN.
There’s no better time to start creating a secure financial future. Now is the time. Start today!
