Teaching Canadians to be Financially Independent By Age 45: Interview with Timothy Stobbs, Author of Canadian Dream-Free at 45! RPF0129

As we begin a new year, I think it's fitting to start with a discussion of financial independence!

My desire for all of you is that you may experience financial independence as you define it and that you may establish a workable plan this year toward its achievement.

Tim Stobbs is right in the middle of his financial independence plan. After stumbling across the idea of early retirement/financial independence, he was awakened to the possibility that an ordinary person could achieve it. 

He set out a plan and started following it. He's now ahead of schedule!

Along the way, he wrote a book to teach others how to accomplish the same goal.

Topics include:

  • Tim's personal plan
  • Details on how to use Canadian retirement accounts to maximum effect
  • Flexible work schedules and alternative working arrangements
  • How financial independence (even partial) can lead to the easier achievement of other goals
  • How having savings impacts the ability to get better jobs

Enjoy the interview!
