After years of reading and studying people who have retired extremely early, I’ve discovered there are two common threads that seem to connect them all.
The first is the ability to think differently. Not just want something different, but honestly believe that there is an alternative out there and they are going to find it.
The second trait that holds up the first the the ability to not care what people think. I mean this in a good way, not a bad way. When you live life outside of the box, some people are going to react negatively to your choices.
If you drive an older car, people are going to assume you cant afford anything nicer. Early retirees have the self confidence to ignore backhanded insults like “you can’t take it with you when you die.”
In the video we talk about some of our own struggles with “looking poor” and how we’ve overcome them.

Which is more important on Youtube, audio or video quality? I think good audio is second only to good content. Here a couple of clips comparing $6500 dollars worth of camera equipment and $6500 dollars worth of audio equipment.

WOW! 1000 YouTube subscribers. Thank you everyone who has subscribed to our channel for all the love and support. To thank you, we came up with a little idea to make you a part of the future of our channel. We cut up 1000 little pieces of paper and spelled out “Thank You 1000.”
As we reach each new milestone, we’re going to save all of the little paper squares and use them to spell out the next message.
We’re also going to do a Q&A video. So if you have any questions for us, now is the time to ask!

I bought an antique knife switch off eBay as a decoration. When I got it in the mail, I knew I wanted to make it actually work. But I needed to make it safe. So I used a solid state relay and a phone changer to wire everything together. You can watch the process in the video above. I got everything to fit inside of the light switch box, so I didn’t need to drill into the wall.
