At least, it wasn't for Tony, who retired at age 37 and prefers not to reveal his last name. He was able to retire with savings in the mid-six figures thanks to a high income working as a software developer and low expenses; he paid $400 a month for a house and land owned by distant relatives, where he started a farm. However, not long after making the leap into early retirement, he found himself in a "spiral of … [Read more...] about A software developer who retired in his 30s says he went back to work less than 2 years later because the free time didn’t make him any happier
