She’s a 36 year old lawyer living in West Chester, Pennsylvania, with her husband, Brad, 40. Together, they earn about $265,000 each year. They spend roughly $114,000 annually to cover their living expenses.
Currently, they have about $100,000 saved and contribute $4,000 per month ($48,000 annually) to their retirement accounts, investing the money in moderate assets. They plan to retire early in Florida at age 55.
