A few readers have been in touch to ask me about my past and how I came to be where I am now.
In this first instalment, I want to take you from my childhood, up until the event that changed my life and is the reason this blog (as well as many other things in my life) exists.
When I was about 4 years old we moved from south Kent to a small village in Essex, around 50 miles east of London.
I am not going to say that we were ever poor.
Money never seemed to cause us too many...
In my research for this blog, I stumbled across a rather scary group of people called the ‘internet retirement police’ that threaten to derail my Millennial Mutiny before it has even started.
The internet retirement police apparently go around telling people that they are not doing early retirement 'correctly' or that they are not in fact financially independent, all while probably hiding behind some anonymous avatar online.
I have to thank Mr. Money Mustache for warning me...
I wanted to start off by providing some background on why I decided to start writing this blog.
For a start, I am sick and tired of Millennials being characterised as lazy, entitled, self righteous, avocado eating layabouts. Based on what I know, nothing could be further from the truth!
