Silver Milestones: Paid off two mortgages worth $200,000 and retired before he turned 40

Personal finance book recommendation: “The Wealth Choice: Success Secrets of Black Millionaires” by Dr. Dennis Kimbro

When the Saunders heard about the movement for financial independence and early retirement, they took up the challenge to save and invest aggressively. They started earning passive income through rental property and have since paid off the mortgages on their rental property and their own home, totaling $200,000.

The couple successfully retired from their jobs at the company before they turned 40. They now rely on their investments and their Rich & Regular blog for a stable income.

The book that influenced their financial journey is “The Wealth Choice” by Dr. Dennis Kimbro.

Julien says, “I’m very aware of the work he’s done that specifically speaks to the black community. He’s someone who started to prepare people of my generation to have these conversations about money I’m very proud to know that we can have the opportunity, through Rich & Regular, to fill the void with others in this space.”
