Best common sense article I've seen. You don't need a million to retire. I retired at 55 with a combo of lean and coast FIRE. After retirement I worked parttime/parttime at H&R Block. It was just the tax season and only three or four days a week at that. People get really stressed over taxes. I enjoyed removing the stress. It was commission work, so it was a challenge to see how much you could make in the tax season. I found it easy to average $25 an hour. As a retired public school teacher, it was fun to work with people one on one. After a couple of years I had many returning clients who greeted me like an old friend. I quit the year my youngest son and I were in the final stages of building a food truck from a retired Frito-Lay step van. I felt it was more important to finish the truck and launch his business than it was to go back to Block.
